Have you ever wondered how to effectively use dog ear cleaners and ear drops? Stephen’s latest video teaches you the basics of this task.
Using Dog Ear Cleaners and Drops
When applying ear drops or ear cleaner to your dog’s ears, it is very important to apply them correctly. If you are not getting the drops far enough into the ear canal, they will not be effective. In this video, Stephen first illustrates the relevant anatomy of a dogs ear, before demonstrating how to apply the drops, with the help of nursing assistant, Andy.
It is important to remember that you should do your best to remain calm when applying medication to your dog. It can be a stressful experience for both owner and patient and staying relaxed yourself can help your dog to feel more at ease.
Please remember that you should consult your vet before applying any ear cleaners or ear drops to your dog. The incorrect use of these products can cause damage to the ear, so it is always best to get any ear problems professionally examined prior to applying medication.
If you are concerned that you are not managing to properly administer any medication, it is important to speak to us for advice. The contact details of your local Yorkshire Vets surgery can be found using the Surgeries menu at the top of this page.
