Check your dog's ears

One way of monitoring your dog’s health is to check the ears.

Most owners do not think this is necessary but in “How to clean your dog’s ears”  in wikiHow, it is important to examine the ears weekly.

This is more important for dogs with floppy ears or dogs with allergies.

“Many times, when inspecting the ears you will find that they need cleaning. Cleaning a dog’s ears at home is fairly simple as long as the ears are not infected or damaged. Ensure proper ear care for your loyal companion by regularly inspecting and cleaning its ears, floppy or otherwise,”  wikiHow stressed.

Checking a dog’s ears  and what to look out for:

1. Make your dog sit or stand where you can easily examine the ears. If you see only dirt or normal wax, you can clean the ears. 

2. If there is any drainage of fluid from the ear (clear or gray/brown), thick waxy material,  wounds, any scratch, or scabs, DO NOT clean the ear and contact your vet instead.

Get some Zymox Otic - it's available over the counter. Put that in his ear, but DON'T use anything else or it may not work. It's good stuff, and you should see a marked difference in just a couple of days. If you do not, you really need to have the vet
