Having a hard time cleaning your dog's ears? I was.

Do you have to pursue and subdue your furry friend just to get close to his or her ears? I use to.

Would you like an Easy and Enjoyable way to clean your pet's ears?

If so go here and watch the short video. That's me easily cleaning Baron's ears, almost impossible until now!

Check you out with your great idea!! I take a cotton ball and saturate with my cleaning solution because he doesn't like the swish from the bottle going down his ears but is fine with the cotton ball....actually likes his ears being cleaned..he moans. lol

This is a great idea. I will have to check it out:)

Courtney-Using a saturated cotton ball will work; but requires 2 fingers just to hold the cotton ball! With our Mitts you can simultaneously clean the ear flap or pinna with one finger while distributing the cleansing solution into the ear canal and use your thumb to massage the lower portion of your pet's ear. Massaging helps the cleansing solution to loosen up wax and debris that accumulates in the ear canal.

Also what better tool than our fingers, for safely cleaning hard to reach intricate and delicate places such as our pet's ears?

You are indeed fortunate to have such a good dog that enjoys having his ears cleaned! I had no such luck with my dog Baron and realized there had to be a better way. And now there is!

Try our FingEar Mini Mitts, I know you'll like them and..............

I like your idea because honestly it's never happened but I worry about the cotton ball getting stuck in his ear, that would be my luck. I'm going to try your product:)

I would love to see anything work with Sadie's ears. She literally tried to jump out of our bathroom by trying to jump over the wall never mind that there is a ceiling in the way!

She looks at me like "should I bite you?" "you know I am am thinking about it?" and the all time favorite look "I KNOW YOU JUST DIDN'T DO THAT TO ME!!!"

How come some GSD's have ear problems like you all and others like myself have no issues at all. I don't ever have to do anything to my dogs ears except put my finger in their and rub it around cuz she likes it.

I do recall some other dog's I owned had issues but I wasn't feeding quality food back then either. Which I think is huge when it comes to skin & ears.

Having to at times clean dogs ears is normal. Some activities can bring about the need more often especially when your GSD tries to bite at the wood chips being thrown from a chain saw. The chips themselves were easy to see and remove, most got caught in her hair, however there is dust and junk too. We are dry where I live and we have lots of dust. It gets into everything including my dogs ears so cleaning on occasion is needed. It's not always a dietary/health related issue, even a simple hike can introduce debris.

Anyone use baby wipes ?
I have. But more commonly I just soak a make up remover pad with the cleaner and wrap it around my finger.
Shadow does not like 5he solution going straighr in her ears.
I rarely need to clean them now that she does not get beef. But if she seems itchy I will sometimes put baby oil on them.

The solution that I use is teatree oil based and is an ear cleaning solution. I seems to work best for Shadow when allergies cause flare ups. I went through a bunch of ones that didn't work.
The make up pads are the round flat pads sold everywhere. They are very cheap and also useful for wiping eyes, cleaning small ouchies and applying ointments.
