Woof Wednesday: Treat Your Dog Like A Super-Earo

If your dog keeps scratching its ears or shaking its head, it may be suffering with an ear infection.

Poor Stella used to get these recurrently when she was young and, despite all her health woes over the years, they seemed to be the most upsetting for her, and, therefore for me. Of all her conditions, discomfort in her ears was pretty much the only thing that really made her cry with pain.

As humans we know that earache is a horrid thing but imagine not being able to tell anyone what was wrong and just hoping they pick up the signs?!

With the help of Animalcare, the makers of a new range of ear care for our pets, I can bring you a checklist of how to spot some signs that your dog may have an ear infection (otitis externa).

Stella liked the wind in her ears but hated them to hurt.

 

Seven signs of otitis externa
-inflammation of the ear canal:

Scratching or rubbing of the ears and head
Change of smell around the ear area
Discharge in the ears
Redness or swelling of the ear flap or canal
Shaking of the head or tilting to one side
Pain around the ears

Changes in behaviour

Your first port of call should be the vets to get an infection diagnosed and treated but there are ways to reduce the likelihood of an infection in the first place.

Firstly, it is worth carrying out routine cleaning and checking your dog’s ears at home so that you can detect any issues early on. A gentle cleaner such as Oticare, will remove debris, help against a build up of excess wax and reduce the chance of infection.

Secondly, you can use an innovative, new powder known as Oticurant. This will help balance and maintain the right environment for your dog’s ears, keeping them happy and healthy.

Oticare and Oticurant are part of the newly launched Super-earo’s range of ear care products that follow a unique 3-step approach in ear care – cleaning, treating and maintaining. Ask your vet about this easy to use and effective ear care for your dog.

On www.superearos.com you can find step-by-step guides on how to clean your pet’s ears correctly, how to administer drops and how to use the new powder form – all working together to create the right conditions to keep ears clean and healthy.

Makes everyday ear cleaning easy

For successful treatment you must clean the ear with a gentle cleanser to remove any debris and allow prescribed drops to be able to reach the affected area. Cleaning and caring for your pet’s ears are an important way to reduce the chance of ear infections and excess wax building up once your pet is feeling better.

Routine cleaning and examinations at home enable early detection of potential infections or other issues.

Oticare is suitable for cats too but doesn’t your dog deserve the Super-Earo treatment?
