The Dogs ears are perfect places for parasites, yeast, and bacteria to easily hide and thrive. Dog ears cleaning is an extremely important part of the overall grooming process. Hence with just a little proper maintenance dog ears cleaning can be kept healthy. Some dog breeds are more prone to dirt buildups and infections therefore need a more frequent dog ears cleaning.

How To Recognize Ear Infections in Dogs.
Every dog is a unique. Therefore symptoms of ear infections can appear differently in different dogs. So it’s important to watch for these clues: scratching at ears, tilting or shaking of the head excessively. If your dog seems to shy away from those beloved ear rubs you may want to check or clean his ears. When checking the inside of the ear for signs of ear infection gently open the ear. If the inside of the ear is red, irritated, or has an excessive amount of yellowish or blackish discharge. Often accompanied by an unpleasant odor you are likely dealing with an ear infection and should schedule a vet appointment for your dog. At tanya’s mobile grooming besides dog ears cleaning we can offer infection treatment on the spot. Also after the dog ears cleaning we can recommend a treatment ( if the infection is not severe).
If left untreated, ear infections in dogs can cause skin lesions from constant scratching, irritability, and even loss of hearing. Another debilitating condition is vestibular syndrome. Very similar to human vertigo. This condition affects the dog’s balance causing them to stumble, vomit, lose control and balance. Dog ears cleaning should be a part of their overall grooming regimen and weekly schedule. Keeping up with weekly ear cleanings is the best way to prevent your pet from suffering from any of these ailments and will keep your furry companion much happier.
