Home remedies for dog ear mites and regular grooming are effective methods to treat and prevent mild ear infections. Chronic and recurrent ear infections that do not respond to treatment may even require surgery.
Dog ear care is an important part of your dog care routine. It’s essential that you inspect your dog’s ears from time to time to ensure that they are kept reasonably clean and healthy.
A good time to do this is, of course, when you’re bathing your dog.
But some breeds of dogs do tend to be afflicted with ear infections, so with these breeds, you need to be extra vigilant. Breeds with floppy ears, and especially those with long, floppy ears, are more likely to have ear problems. But dog ear infections can occur in any dog, so ear care for your dog is not something you should overlook.
