Best Dog Ear Cleaning Solution

Knowing how to correctly clean your dogs ears is the best way to prevent ear infections and other dog ear problems, and now you're faced with a serious question: how do you choose between the many dog ear cleaners currently available on the market?

It's always a good idea to ask your vet about any product before using it on your dog, but there are a few rules you can use to determine which products are actually worth asking about.

What to look for in a dog ear cleansing solution

When it comes to your dog's health the most affordable option is rarely the best one, and this is particularly true for products that deal with something as sensitive as your dog's ears.

The best dog ear cleaning solutions are made with naturally derived ingredients. Our key active ingredient is a safe, natural, biodegradable, non-ionic surfactant which cuts through ear wax, dirt and grime. Any water in the ear cleaning solution should be purified.

Some dog ear cleaners also use essential oils, but essential oils are rarely purified properly, so this can actually be harmful. To avoid this issue, the best dog ear cleaning solutions uses citrus and other plant extracts sourced from the best UK manufacturers.

Most importantly, any dog ear cleaner worth buying will disclose ALL of its ingredients on the bottle. Things like "proprietary blends" and "fragrance" are often ways for companies to sneak harmful ingredients into their products. A clear ingredient list also makes it easier for your vet to approve the product.

What to avoid in a dog ear cleansing solution

Companies are legally allowed to sneak a lot of potential irritants into dog care products, so knowing what to avoid is as important as knowing what to look for. Here are some of the most common irritants found in dog ear cleaners:

  • Drying Agents - Alcohol, menthol and chlorothymol are used to reduce moisture in your dog's ears. Less moisture does make it harder for yeast and other bacteria to multiply, but these drying agents can cause skin irritation.
  • Fragrances – Companies aren't required to list the ingredients in fragrances, so "fragrance" is often used to help companies sneak harmful ingredients in.
  • Preservatives – Preservatives are often used to keep ear cleaners fresh but these preservatives can cause severe skin irritation, especially in dogs with pre-existing skin problems.
