What precautions we're taking to prevent this infections?

Hi guys, ear infections in dogs is on alarming rise! I saw 5 Labs in my vet's clinic, all down with ear infections. What precautions we're taking to prevent this infections? The infection takes long time to go, meaning more pain for pets, more veterinary bills. I'll share my tip. 1) While bathing puppy, never use shower and never let water go into the ears. Always, clean the face part with wet towel and to avoid any accident, its best to insert cotten balls into the ears. I'm waiting for tip 2, tip 3,............

Oh..yes!!!
Even mine one (Lab) had been suffering the same fate!!
Symptoms were-
1. Inner ear was a little reddish which otherwise is light pink(normal).
2. She was nodding her head too often...seeing her action you could understand that she was having problem in her ears.

I became sure that it was the problem in her ear when she was whining when her ears were touched.

The reason for the problem, in my case, was ear wax or dirt which remained uncleaned for days.
So I cleaned it with Johnson buds then applied solution of savlon and water using the buds and finally made sure that her ears did not remain wet. She got fine in 24hours(intensity was less).

So the second tip could be cleaning of ear wax, once in a week or 2 weeks.

Do not use ear buds that humans use as it can cause a lot of damage. The best is to only clean the outer ear flap with cotton. Do not probe deep into the ear. Yes checking your dogs ear every 2 weeks is good and clean only if required. When bathing ur dog put cotton in their ear to avoid water going inside. Regardless of shower or bucket bath water can go inside the ear hence the cotton wool in the ear is a good idea, but remember to remove it after the bath. If at all you thing that ur dog has an infection or his ear is smelling foul, do visit the vet, early detection is much better than when the infection has spread quite a bit. The vet can advise ear drops based on the infection.
