What can I use to clean my dog’s ears at home? You only need a few supplies to successfully clean your dog’s ears: a cotton ball or gauze, dog ear-cleaning solution, and a towel. Avoid using cotton-tipped swabs (Q-tips) or anything with a pointed tip.
What can I wash my dog’s ears with? Use an over-the-counter ear cleaner or normal saline. Irrigation can be done without stressing out your dog. Hold the ear flap upright and fill the ear canal with the cleaning solution. To fill the canal, squeeze the bottle directly into the canal for about 5 seconds.
Can I make my own ear wash for my dog? Using vinegar and water, you can make a simple but effective homemade dog ear cleaner. Alternatively, you can use apple cider vinegar and water along with some Isopropyl rubbing alcohol.
How can I treat my dog’s ear infection without going to the vet? Use a mixture of 50% organic apple cider vinegar and 50% water, soak a cotton ball and clean your dog’s ears. If you notice your dog in pain or her ears drying out too much, discontinue use and see your vet.
