Cleaning your dogs’ ears can be a tricky task, especially for a rescue dog whose history you don’t know!

- Dog ears are sensitive and need to be cleaned regularly to avoid infection.
- Dogs do not like to have their ears handled so you’ll need to be careful how you approach the ear cleaning.
- Cleaning your dogs’ ears the wrong way can lead to possible damage so you must be careful.
Our new rescue pup Seamus is ten years old and has a chronic ear condition that requires drops every three days.
The first time my youngest son and I tried to administer the medicine that the SPCA Shelter gave us, he had only been with us for three days and thus was NOT a happy camper as we tried to put the medicine into his ear canal!
