    Excellent Ear Cleaner

    This cleanser is what my Vet carries at a higher
    price. I always keep it on hand for my allergy dog
    that constantly has ear flare ups. It works great!
    If used regularly, my dog doesn't get bad ear infections anymore.

    Good for a dog's ear problems
    March 7, 2015
    We use this product weekly as an ear flush for our dog that has had ongoing ear infections since she was a puppy (She's now 9). That gets followed the next day, weekly, by an ear medicine. Our other younger dog gets a flush weekly just to maintain good ear health and prevent problems. This produce was recommended by a canine dermatologist who deals with ear/skin/allergy problems.

    More Drying Ear Cleaner
    May 13, 2014
    My dog has had a a very stubborn ear infection for nearly a year now. During this time we've gone thru several cleaners in combination with several antibiotic meds. This has been the best of the cleaners because it is more drying than others which has been a great help. We're finally seeing improvement by combining this cleaner with Surolan...

    Good stuff

    I have a yellow lab that has had chronic ear problems since he was a juvenile, and he is 8 years old now. When I first took him to the vet, they gave me Epiotic and antibiotic cream to deal with the infections. The vet also suggested cleaning his ears with the Epiotic routinely and especially after swimming or getting water in the ears. This stuff works well to help dry the ears and keep infections away. We just use it a couple times a week and after he goes swimming and have not had any problems. Sometimes he will start shaking his head like his ears are bothering him so we use the Epiotic and problem solved. It works much better than a vinegar/water solution or any other product we have tried.

    I use it for my German shepherd. For regular weekly cleaning and having Salicylic acid is great.

    Keeps her ears clean and smelling wonderfully fresh. I usually put the bottle in a tub of warm water first so the liquid isn't so cold in her ear.

    She's not a big fan of the process but her ears and clean and problem free so I'm a big fan!

    I have 2 labs and need to clean their ears often. Epi-Otic works great. I previously got it from the vet, but it's less expensive from Entirely Pets.

    Oh what a relief it is...
    February 14, 2013
    Because Max is a Cocker Spaniel, he seems to create a lot of buildup quickly. It would hurt to see him clawing at his own ears, without apparent relief. But this formula works quickly and efficiently. Now he scratches to get me to nuzzle behind his ears...LOL Thanks so much!
