Dogs are man’s best friends. They are always there for you when you need them and will do anything to please their owner. However, dogs have an issue that many people don’t know about: ear infections. It is extremely important to keep your dog’s ears clean, otherwise, they can develop a terrible infection which may lead to the necessity of surgery or other treatments. Luckily, cleaning your dog’s ears does not take much time at all! In this blog post, we will discuss how to properly clean your dog’s ears so that they stay healthy and happy!

Importance of Cleaning Dog’s Ears

Dogs have a great sense of hearing, so it’s crucial to keep their ears clean in order for them to hear well. Dirty or infected dog ears can lead to reduced hearing and discomfort when they are trying to listen closely. They may also develop bacterial infections which could be very painful!

Getting Started: How Do You Clean Dog Ears?

Give your pup a shampoo bath if you haven’t done so lately even if the coat is shiny and healthy looking. This will help get rid of any excess dirt that might cause an infection down the road. As well as remove old product buildup from grooming products like flea treatments or deshedding agents which can irritate skin around the eyes and ear area. In other words, washing the ears will help them stay healthy!

Next, you’ll need to use a safe ear cleaner and wipe it inside the dog’s ear canal. Use cotton balls or gauze soaked with warm water to get deep in their ears without hurting your pet by using something sharp like tweezers.

In order for this process to be as painless as possible, simply take one of these items and gently place it into each individual hole on the outer part of the ear. Gently push down until you reach a point where there is no more dirt at all left in that particular spot. Then, repeat this method for every other section so they are completely clean from top-to-bottom.

If your pup has any hair around their eyes and face, make sure you clean them, too. This will help prevent dirt and bacteria from building up around this sensitive area which could lead to infection or irritation.

Lastly, use a cotton ball with some rubbing alcohol on it and wipe down the outside of your dog’s ears so that any leftover product has been removed before they shake their head as well as after bathing–not just during! The idea is to get rid of anything that might be left behind in order for your pup not only to stay healthy but also happy!

Cleaning your dog’s ears is an important part of their grooming routine.

Step 1: The first step to cleaning your dog’s ears is to get them used to having their ears touched.

Step 2: Then gather items needed for the job – a damp cloth, cotton balls, and ear cleaner

Step 3: Next, use a cotton ball or tissue and gently wipe out any dirt from the inside of the ear canal.

Step 4: Lift your dog’s ears up so they are upright.

Step 5: After that, you can use a pet-specific cleaner on the outside of the ear canal before finishing up with some water.

Step 6: Let the cleaning solution sit in their ears for about 5 minutes before removing it with another cotton ball.

Step 7: Finally, dry off your pup’s head by using a towel or blow dryer (on low)

Repeat this process once per week for best results


When your dog is done with the ear cleaning, make sure to dry them thoroughly and then give them a treat. They’ll love being spoiled like that! Finally, don’t forget to brush their teeth or wipe their gums after they chew on anything tasty-looking–they’ll thank you for it later. It’s important to take care of our furry friends so they can be healthy and happy!
