[SOLVED] How to Stop Your Dogs Itchy Ears

Does your dog have itchy ears?

Dog ears have quite long ear canals, ranging from 5-10cm, and their ear canals have a right-angled bend. This makes it easy for stuff to get into their ears and almost impossible for them to remove it on their own.

A dog’s ear canal is warm, dark and moist, the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, so debris in the ear often causes ear infections and your dog may injure themselves trying to deal with the irritation

If your pet is displaying any of the following signs, you should consult a vet:

  • Brown, yellow, or bloody discharge.
  • Dog has swollen ear.
  • Odor in the ear.
  • Excessive and continued scratching.
  • Redness.
  • Swelling.
  • Crusts or scabs on inside of the outer ear.
  • Hair loss around the ear.

What if its not an infection?

Itchy ears do not always mean an infection is present. Excess wax and debris can also cause such issues. Cleaning your dogs ears regularly will ensure your pet remains comfortable and will stop them scratching at their itchy ears. 

How often you should clean your dog’s ears depends on a number of factors: what type of ears they have, where you usually go on your walks, and how often they swim.

For most dogs you should clean their ears at least once a month and after every swim. It’s also important to check their ears after prolonged walks or outdoor play time, especially prolonged play time in wooded areas. If you see any hint of debris, clean their ears out right away.

Dogs with floppy ears or a lot of fur in their ears should have their ears cleaned at least once every two weeks. You should also trim the excess fur around their ears regularly to avoid infection. Most vets are willing to show you how to do this yourself at home.
