Used Many - This is BEST by The Ear Cleaner03/13/2011
As a lab owner I can tell you that once the ears start you are chasing your tail to resolve it because many of the meds or cleaners add to the problem. This is the FIRST cleaner that I have found that actually cleans the ears and doesn't irritate the dogs and leave them shaking and reacting after the cleaning. The ears had gotten so bad and the treatments caused more irritation to the dogs. Since using this the dogs are showing considerable improvement. It has taken time but even trying other treatments along the way shows a big difference. This one calms the shaking and itching and depending on how bad the ears are will gradually clean them gently. I noticed that it continues to cause a cleaning around the clock so when they shake their heads, the "crud" continues to come out. Buying multiple bottles today to make sure I have it for swimming season. In response to reviews about the odor: it has a "clean" smell to it. If there is an odor it must be coming from the ear discharge. There is no fruity or pretty scent to this and I don't think I need one for my dogs' ears. Prefer less chemicals and fragrance is not what I want in their ears. It does leave a clean scent. It takes time to see the difference but you will notice the difference when you see that your dog isn't shaking their ears after treatment. Other treatments leave my dogs shaking their ears for days. After this treatment, they only shake immediately after and then they are comfortable and quit itching and shaking.

Ear Problems by Jackie02/08/2008
My collie used to get yeast infections in her ears all the time. I got this ear cleaner from the vet because the kind I was using was alcohol based and was causing more of a problem. I really like it and now this is the only ear cleaner I use!

Does a great job of keeping ears clean. Just flush them out once a week and it helps keep the allergy symptoms in check
Best Thing I Ever Invested in!! by Sunkissedcutie from Tri-Cities Washington09/01/2011
I can't stress enough how much this product has saved me from Vet bills associated with Ear infections due to the Long Ears of my Cocker Spaniels. My Veterinarian suggested it to me when I took my 6 week old Cocker Spaniel in for his first physical. He is 8 1/2 years old now and has NEVER had an ear infection. I have since owned several other Cocker Spaniels and a Mixed Cocker all have gotten the same treatment and I have not had one Vet Bill for Anything related to my Pets ears. In fact to quote my Veterinarian Dr. Jim Benson of the Desert Veterinary Clinic, "In all my years of practice as a Veternarian, I don't think I have ever seen dog ears as clean as your dogs!" I owe it all to Virbac and this wonderful cleanser.. I use it once a week in my dogs ears and squish it all around to make sure I get the solution down into the ear canal. They can shake their head after you clean them as it feels good, it evaporates does not leave damp ears to get infected. My secret is to always run a sink full of hot water to place the bottle of solution in to warm it up to body temp. Dogs are like humans they don't like having something shoved in their ears that is ice cold, nor scalding hot.. 5 minutes prep time... 3 minutes to do the cleaning and a lifetime of great non smelly ears. Best of all Entirely Pets I have found has the BEST price for this product.. I buy a couple of the 8 oz bottles and like now will buy a 16 oz bottle when it goes on sale so I can refill the smaller bottles which is easier to handle when cleaning their ears. I also do this with their bath so it all gets done together... I ABSOLUTELY WOULD NOT EVER THINK OF OWNING A FLOPPY EAR DOG IF IT WEREN'T FOR EPI-OTIC BY VIRBAC..
