About Dog Ear Drops
Wax and other debris in your dog's ears can lead to blockages, and could also lead to infections. Specialist ear cleaners are available that help to clean and remove debris from the ears to help prevent complications from arising. You will need to take care when cleaning your pet’s ears, though, as the inside can be very delicate. Make sure also that you use only specially formulated cleaners.
Mites such as canker and other parasites can also cause complications if not treated properly. As well as causing irritation to your pet, they can also lead to infections that could potentially cause long term damage. Remedies for parasites can be purchased from your vet, local pet store or online pet store and are generally easy to use.
