Cleaning Pet Ears
Complications of the ear are the most common reason pets are brought to the veterinarian. Keeping your cat or dog’s ears clean is vital to prevent ear infections among other health issues. If you’d like to learn how to clean your cat or dog’s ears at home we recommend scheduling an appointment with Portland Maine Pet Grooming so we can show you the proper technique for cleaning pet’s ears. The ear canal is delicate so it’s important to employ the correct ear cleaning methods.
When to Clean a Pet’s Ears
Pets with preexisting ear problems may need ear cleanings as often as twice a week. For the prevention of ear infections, cleaning your dog or cat’s ears once per month may be an appropriate rate. If your pet has never had any issues they may be fine without an ear cleaning; However, if your pet’s ears have never been professionally checked, we recommend scheduling a time for our mobile pet grooming vehicle to stop by to determine if your pet’s ears are in good condition or if we should begin a cleaning regimen.
