Some dogs naturally have healthy, clean ears and may almost never need to have their ears cleaned, while other dogs require regular ear cleaning to prevent the buildup of dirt that can lead to ear infections. Dog breeds with long hanging ears, such as Basset Hounds and Cocker Spaniels, are among those with the highest risk of getting ear infections, but all breeds can develop them.
How often should you clean your dog's ears?
Clean, healthy ear is pink, not dirty or inflamed and smell is not yeasty or stinky. Over-cleaning your dog’s ears can lead to infection and irritation, clean it only when you notice a change.
