How should I maintain my dog's ears?

Clean Ears Make for a Happy Dog

Do you want to keep your dog's ears healthy? The key is cleanliness. Clean your dog's ears on a regular basis, clearing them of dirt, debris, waxy build-up, and matted hair. Be extremely gentle. Do not, under any circumstances, use soap and water. Additionally, do not probe at the ear with Q-tips or other objects—this may end up driving the problem deeper into the dog's ear or even injuring him.

If you're concerned about your dog's ears becoming a problem, talk to a veterinarian about non-prescription eye & ear care regiments for your furry pal. It is likely that your vet will be able to recommend a variety of products that will help you maintain your dog's health.
