This is an IN-DEPTH, detailed demonstration on how to clean and medicate a dog’s ears by a veterinarian. Hopefully, this video will help you. The best medicine in the world won’t work if you don’t get it in the ear correctly!
Make sure your veterinarian is involved, and please..know what you are treating, I know it’s tempting to go get over the counter ear mite medication at the local pet store….but in the long run…these things usually don’t work (unless you know for SURE he/she has mites) and they just delay correct treatment and prolong the suffering. (ear infections hurt)
Hi you guys. This is Dr. Susan. I have made this video especially for my clients who may not know how to do this.
Sometimes they think they do, only to discover that they weren’t doing it right (weren’t getting the “smacking sound”).
It is easier to demonstrate this than to try to discribe it.
Over the years I have seen a lot of people get frustrated. I feel bad for these people, because they keep coming back over and over…No offense, but I would rather not see them that often…I would rather know that their dog is feeling good and that they know how to deal with these infections.
I HATE that people feel like they are being “nicked and dimed” to death. Hopefully this video will somehow help you. Remember, do NOT use q-tips, except on the very outer part where you can see the end of it.
