Have you ever smelled inside your dog’s ears? No, really. If there’s an odd smell there (like crushed walnuts), your dog might just have a problem.
Our Irie, with her floppy ears, is especially prone to ear issues so we rinse out her ears frequently. Especially with long-eared dogs, moisture combines with wax, dirt and who-knows-what down in there to cause problems. It was bad enough once to require a veterinary visit so we’re extra-diligent with her ears these days.
Because of that, we were happy to learn about Dr. Emmo’s Ear Rinse. It’s antibiotic-free and safe for all pets, just like all the Dr. Emmo’s products (like the Wound Care Wash and Wound Care Gel we told you about in yesterday’s video.)
Rinsing Irie’s ears only takes a few minutes; cupping her ear in one hand so the rinse gets down into her ear, massaging the ear a bit so that the rinse goes into the L-shaped canal for a good cleansing…then standing back as Irie shakes it all out (and, with that, dirt and debris!) is a quick task. When she’s done, I take a cotton ball and wipe out everything she’s shaken from the inside of her ear…all followed by a yummy treat!
Dr. Emmo’s also makes a sting-free Eye Wash that’s pH-neutral. Both products eliminate 99.9 percent of the bacteria that could cause future problems!
If you’d like to learn more about these products and about pet first aid, please be sure to attend Tuesday’s #Pet1stAid Twitter party at 8pm ET. During the hour-long party, we’ll have pet first aid expert Arden Moore at the party to answer your questions. Please be sure to RSVP for the party and join in our PreTweet Giveaway and Rafflecopter Giveaway, each with great prizes! And Dr. Emmo’s has a special offer for free travel-sized Wound Care Wash and Wound Care Gel, great for road trips with Rover!
