How to Clean Dog Ears?

To clean your dogs ears, choose a quiet, calm moment. Talk softly to the dog to keep them from getting upset. Use a very damp cotton ball to gently clean the outer part of the ear only. Don’t go too deep. If you see a reddish colored substance further in the ear, check your local pet supply store for treatments for ear mites that you can use easily at home. This is why dogs scratch their ears, because of mites.
