We love our boxer, Rocky with his big floppy ears. Those ears, however, can be a breeding ground for ear infections and irritations. Does the thought of another expensive vet bill for an ear infection and more expensive products, just too much to take?
Our, Essential Oil Dog Ear Wash Spray for Ear Infections which can safely and effectively treat ear infections at home, contains Lavender, Geranium, Frankincense and Basil essential oils.
First: Keep your Dog’s Ears Healthy.
Healthy ears start with a weekly maintenance exams and cleaning with cotton balls and cotton swabs.
Lift the dog’s ear flap while holding a cotton ball between your thumb and index finger, push the cotton downward into the ear’s opening and scoop upward. Use a few dry cotton balls to clean out any normal waxy buildup.
Next put a cotton swab gently into the ear canal, then scoop upward while rubbing it against the walls of the vertical canal. Repeat as needed depending on how much debris is in the ear.
After the excess debris is removed from the ear, lightly spray (3-4 times) the inside of your dog’s ear flap or spray a cotton ball with our Essential Oil Dog Ear Wash Spray and wipe around it to the ear canal. By using a light spray mist you can lightly distribute the essential oil blend without over saturating the area.
Do not drip oils into the ear canal, they will end up collecting on the ear drum where they can cause infection.
If ears are especially inflamed or infected, use 2 drops of the Lavender Essential Oil diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil (included) on a cotton ball and apply lightly to soothe the inflamed ear area.
Also a diet that contains grains (corn, wheat, soy, etc) can feed yeast infections and also cause chronic inflammation and damage to their immune system, setting a predisposed dog for even more ear infections. You can find many options for grain free dog foods.
NOTE: If your dog develops a suspected ear infection for the first time, or if it’s especially severe/painful, seek veterinarian care to rule out a tumor, polyp or some other issue that requires medical attention.
