    DefaultDirty Ears

    Do you find that your dogs get more build up in their ears in the summer when it's warmer and they swim more? I find that I need to clean Rocky's ears pretty much daily so they stay clear of waxy build up. His left ear is worse than his right for some reason.

    I haven't cleaned Caleb's ears since right after switching his food at the beginning of March. They've been nice and pink ever since. Mick was the one who swam in the lake a lot (we lived at a camp for the first 7 years of his life). Once I figured out what foods he was allergic to, I don't remember having to clean his ears any more often in the summer than in the cooler weather.

    The more you clean, the more you're going to see wax since all the cleaning is disturbing the pH balance in the ear, making the ear create more wax.

    We don't clean ears unless we see a problem.

    I use epi-otic ear cleaner in my dogs ear and no I don't see more wax because I cleaned them. If you are using a good ear cleaner than it should work and not make the ear wrose. If you are seeing lots of wax or it has a smell to it than there is most likely an ear infection.
