Virbac Epi-otic ear cleanser works great for cleaning out cat and dog ears. I have had many cats and dogs, of all different breeds with all different needs. Some pets get really dirty and smelly ears with a lot of gunk, and some don't. I have had pets that needed their ears cleaned on a regular basis and I've had some that rarely needed cleaning. For those pets who have really dirty ears this stuff works great. It loosens the stuck on greasy stuff all inside the ear and makes it very quick to clean and get it all out. Anyone who has had to clean ears out knows how yucky that job can be, and some dogs aren't the greatest at holding still or allowing it. Using this makes makes it easier on the dog and the cleaner as well. It also helps to keep the ears from getting an odor in between cleanings. The pets ears come out cleaner with a lot less work and time involved so it's well worth buying some! I recommend it for sensitive ears too because I use it on my older dog who has always had tender ears that easily get irritated and she has never had a problem. I like to put some in the ear and kind of close the ear up and massage all around the ear canal before I start cleaning the ears out. It works best to do one ear at a time and then moving on to the other side. I've never had any problems with using this and I don't even think about cleaning pets ears without this stuff! If I run out I won't do their ears without buying more. There are other brands out there but I haven't tried them because I am happy with the results I get with this kind. I have been using it a long time and my dogs have not had any side effects. I highly recommend it and once you try it, you won't want to do any cleanings without it! It's priced fairly and easily to purchase. No prescription required. Avaliable in store and online.
