Drs. Foster & Smith Ear Clens Pads make cleaning your dog's ears a snap.
April 12, 2011 6:17 pm | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.
Whether your pet’s ears are sweet and floppy or cute and pointy, they pick up a lot more than the sounds of the door or the can opener. Regular ear cleanings can help prevent more serious problems, such as chronic, painful ear infections. But how can you get your pet to stay still while you give his ear a good cleaning?
The Ear Clens Pads from Drs. Foster and Smith are an easy, quick way to swipe both ear wax and unwanted dirt from your pet’s ear flaps. Although you might need a treat to appease your pet for the first few sessions with these pads, our tester dog became easily accustomed to the process, and didn’t shy away or flinch when the pads came out – or made contact with his ear.
Of course, if your pet is showing serious signs of ear problems, such as pawing or incessant scratching, it’s always a good idea to check in with your veterinarian in case he has more severe underlying problems, such as allergies or ear mites. While the Ear Clens Pads are highly effective for regular maintenance and cleaning, the product does not seem formulated to take on tough cases where more serious intervention is necessary.
For those breeds and individual dogs that tend towards regular ear discomfort, though, the Ear Clens Pads, treated with the non-toxic Drs. Foster and Smith Ear Clens Solution, can help save your pet from uncomfortable scratching – and help cut down on trips to the vet for those nasty ear infections.
Pros: Easy to use; treated with non-toxic solution; helps to prevent more serious infections.
