Pet Care is a pet awareness initiative by Harwinder Grewal. Who is an owner of Grewal Pet Shop and Farm, Main Road, Adampur. In this video, he tells about How To Clean Your Dog Ear in the Hindi Language.
1. It is best to clean a dog’s ears in the bathroom, a mud room, or another room of your home where you won’t mind a potential mess. Most dogs don’t enjoy having their ears cleaned, which means spills are inevitable.
2. The best tools to use for cleaning your dog’s ears are a good pair of hemostats and some cotton balls. Do not use Q-tips on a dog’s ears, as they can push debris further inside the ear canal, or even damage the ear. Hemostats can be purchased at drug stores, pharmacies, or from your veterinarian. You can purchase an ear cleaning solution specifically created for pets, or you can mix one up at home.
3. A highly recommended home ear cleaning solution is 1 part white vinegar to 1 part of water. This solution works wonders on dogs that have chronic yeast or bacterial infections in their ears. Another ear cleaning solution you can mix at home is 1 part hydrogen peroxide to 1 part water. Never use alcohol to clean your dog’s ears. Alcohol can dry out the sensitive skin inside the ears and cause allergic reactions.
4. Start your dog’s ear cleaning with a good belly rub and soothing words. This will relax your dog and let him know that ear cleaning times are not so bad. Place a small amount of the solution in your dog’s ears, and then massage the base of the ears. At this point your dog will want to do a head shake. Let the dog give a good shake which will help loosen debris inside the ear. Lock down a cotton ball in the hemostat and gently use it to wipe out the inside of the ear. Repeat as often as needed, working from the inside out with a fresh cotton ball, until no more wax is seen on the cotton ball. Finish up the ear cleaning session with a treat and extra words of encouragement to help soothe your dog’s nerves.
5. It can be easy to become obsessed with ear care, but you do not want to clean your dog’s ears too frequently. Over-cleaning can actually upset the natural flora balance of the ears, leading to infections. Once a week home exams should be sufficient to help maintain clean and healthy ears.
6. Ear infections and other ear disorders are extremely common in domestic dogs and can be caused by a number of unrelated conditions. Fortunately, they are not particularly difficult to diagnose. Still, it is important for owners who think that their dog may have an ear problem to take it to the veterinarian as soon as possible, so that the condition can be evaluated and properly addressed. The initial data base for a dog showing signs of ear discomfort includes a thorough history and a comprehensive physical examination.
7. The veterinarian will ask the owner detailed questions about the dog’s symptoms, including when they started and whether they have stayed about the same, waxed and wane or gotten worse. He also will be interested to learn about any dietary or environmental changes, such as a change in kibble, recent carpet cleaning, lawn fertilization or recent travel. During the physical examination, the veterinarian will look carefully for ulcers, wounds, sores, redness, swelling, abnormal waxy build-up, impacted debris, tumors, external parasites or other observable evidence of possible causes of the dog’s discomfort.
8. He probably will gently take samples from both of the ear flaps and outer ear canals using sterile swabs; these samples will be submitted to a laboratory for microscopic examination and possibly for culture and sensitivity. This assessment will help to identify or rule out the presence of any abnormal bacterial, yeast, fungal or other microorganisms and to assess cellular signs of inflammation, infection, parasitic infestation or other diagnostic evidence. Many veterinarians will also take blood and urine samples for a complete blood count, serum biochemistry profile and urinalysis as part of the initial database. The results of these tests can detect infection, anemia and a number of other abnormalities, if they are present.
