The twisty, curvy design of a dog’s inner ear, makes it easy for parasites, bacteria and yeast to hide and thrive in them. This also means that any debris in the canal must work its way up to escape. Infections can result from trapped debris. Dogs with allergies are particularly vulnerable, as are those with floppy ears, like Cocker spaniels, basset hounds, retrievers and poodles.
Cleaning your dog's ears weekly can keep this debris from leading to a painful infection. Some dog's are bothered by a build-up of hair that grows in the opening of the ear canal. We offer an ear plucking service that uses a specially designed powder to enable the hair to be gripped and plucked from the canal without causing discomfort to the dog.
