over the counter eye cleaner

Has anyone had any good results with the over the counter ear cleaners? Once they've started head shaking is it too late?

Re: over the counter eye cleaner

I found the greatest stuff at Petsmart. It's a 3-step process but I don't do the first step:
1) R-7 Ear Powder
2) R-7 Ear Cleaner
3) R-7 Drying Ear Creme

The drying creme is the greatest thing ever! It's also easy to apply since it's more cream than liquid, I put some on cotton ball then apply inside ear and it doesn't bother him at all since it's not running down his ears. And it really works!

Max how long does it take to work? I have been doing the otomax for Rocky and it doesnt seem to be working this time.

Re: over the counter eye cleaner

Danielle, IMHO Otomax doesn't work very well in most cases. You don't want to use the Otomax for extending periods of time as it may result in a ruptured ear drum.

I use Zymox products. Angela W, from the board steered me to them a few years ago. EntirleyPets - Zymox

My Male has seasonal allergies, so I use the stuff with the Hyrdocortisone in it to make his ears feel better.

I have used the ear wash, the drop, I also have the Spray, wipes and Medicated rinse. So far I like all the products and they seem to work well.

Re: over the counter eye cleaner

Val have you ever tried the Petsmart stuff recommended here?

Do you use more than one product at a time? As I said currently he is on the drops and they just dont seem to be working this time.

Re: over the counter eye cleaner

Zymox with the drops it says not to use the cleaner. If my boys ears are bothering him I use the cleaner. But since it is his allery time it is the drops.

No I haven't tried the Petsmart stuff listed, the nearest Petsmart is 45 miles away. We have a Petco which I don't go to very often. I get my food from a feed store, lots of stuff I order online. I live out in the country, so online shopping works good for me.

Re: over the counter eye cleaner

Ok thanks. I am guessing this cleaner is different then the vet cleaner you get? (Trying to remember the name of it, but am drawing a complete blank LOL)

Re: over the counter eye cleaner

For chronic yeasty ears, I use the stuff for vaginal yeast infections -- works better than anything prescription -- doesn't cause him to react horribly either. I can't remember the name of the one I use -- I get the generic one from Walmart -- I think it's the 3-day one.
