2. Moisten cotton ball or cloth with mineral oil, olive oil or witch hazel and gently wipe the inside of ears. Cotton swabs are not recommended. Never insert anything into the dog’s ear canal.
3. Use blunt scissors or approved trimmer to trim excess hair within ear. Always stay clear of the ear canal. If your dog sprouts hair from the ear canal, tweezers will be required for plucking to prevent matting and tangles. Ask your vet whether this is necessary for your dog.
