Ear cleaning is particularly important as failing to do this properly could result in costly and painful ear infections for your dog.

Anyone who has tried to administer ear drops to a dog before knows that this is a situation to be avoided, so read on to find out how to prevent ear infections in dogs.

Prevention involves working out what it is that is causing your dog to become prone to ear infections if they have had them in the past, or from avoiding conditions that could encourage an infection.

The ear becomes prone to infection if it becomes wet or moist from grooming, swimming or bathing. The warm moist environment of the ear allows microorganisms to grow rapidly and can lead to an infection.

Some dogs can also have allergies that lead to ear infections. High pollen levels in the summer can contribute to ear infections, as can dust mites or even food allergy. This is as an allergic reaction leads to inflammation that can cause cracks in the skin and the ear canal that can let microorganisms in, which cause an infection.

It is best to discuss any history of ear infections your dog may have with your groomer, to ensure they are aware of any measures that need to be taken. You can also buy ear cleaners for dogs.
