Or will it burn? Jacey has an ear that is very yucky and I cant tell if its red because of all the crap in there or if its infected. I want to clean the crap out but a tissue isnt working very well.
It dosnt seem to be bothering her but id still like to clean it out..
I think it will burn. I have a solution from the vet that I use (Otocleanse). You might call them to see what they suggest if you can't get that.
A little hydrogen peroxide would be better or just plain warm water.
Ill see if I have some peroxide
I can call the vet but I wont be able to go get anything from them I am truckless till sometime tonight or later this week when we find a new car. (Cross yur fingers and paws for a G6!!)
Rubbing alcohol is drying, but I used to use it on my dogs until I got some earcleaner from the vet. Mine have never had problems with their ears, but I clean them every couple of weeks with solution on a large cotten ball.

I use the purple stuff with witch hazel if I think there could be sores in the ears. I guess you could use witch hazel.
I use the solution Laura has on her site, but substitute tea tree oil instead of Gentian violet. If you want, you could use just plain witch hazel.
Try white vinegar and warm water mixed 50/50. My vet says that this is one of the best ways to clean labs ears. Just my 2 cents.
Thank you everyone! I used some peroxide on some tissue and it looks a lot better now! Thank you!
