    Great cleaner for cleaning ears. It helps get rid of dirt and if done weekly, it can keep ear yeast infections away.

    I got this product to use on my Cornish Rex before a show. This breed has no hair in their ears, so they tend to have a LOT of very dark ear wax. This worked great to get his ears sparkling clean for the show, and I have not cleaned his ears in 5 days, whereas I usually have to do it daily!

    I can't ever seem to get this it's always on backorder with our vet and usually sold out on websites. One recent addition to our home had bad ear problems so we have to use this daily it works well with a pleasant scent and doesn't dry his skin out

    Love this stuff! Helps keep our long eared puppies/dogs from getting smelly ears and ear infections. Even use it for our feline friends to keep their ears from getting waxy build up. Vet sells the same product but Entirely Pets sells it for a fraction of the cost.

    I have an English Cocker, with long heavy ears. She is prone to ear infections. My vet recommended this product. I put it into both ear canals, and then rub the top of the ears for 30 seconds, making sure I get that wet, squishy sound. I do it three times a week, and she has not had an ear infection for 2 years! The only negative is that it has a little bit of a chemical/perfume smell while it is still wet. As soon as it dries, there is no smell. When the house is cold, I put the container in the microwave for about 5 seconds. It's much more pleasant for her to have warm solution going into her ears.

    My vet recommends I use this product to clean my pugs ears weekly. I have tried other cheaper products and they don't clean as well as Epi-optic.

    My poodle has issues with keeping his ears dry. The vet recommended using his product. I use this product daily and my poodle's ears have had no smelly issues ever since.

    We were paying a lot more to get ear wash from the Vet, but when i compared ingredients, this was exactly the same for half the price. Our cockapoo is prone to ear infections so we clean his ears at least 2-3 times/week. So far, so good with this product.

    My vet had first given me this for my dogs ear infection, used regularly it keeps my dogs ears clean and infection free. My dog doesn't like to get stuff in her ears but this dries quickly and leaves no residue.

    This does a great job. I'm not sure if this is better than the old formula or why they changed it, but it works great.
    also not sure is this is better than the regular Epi-Otic

    My beagle coon-hound has had awful ear infections for over a year now. Tried the Advanced Epi-Otic for about a month, using it a couple times a week.
    It's worked wonders! Ears have been "infection free" for over a month now. I highly recommend.

    we like to use the Epi-Optic Advanced Ear cleaner to clean dogs ears. Also good to use before applying ear mite medicine.

    I have been using this product for years! It effectively cleans the ears and has a nice scent. It can be used as a flush for very dirty ears or you can saturate a cotton ball and gently cleanse the inner ear canal. Clean ears prevent infections so use it regularly, every 2-4 weeks depending on your dog's lifestyle.

    Another Great Product From Virbac
    January 22, 2013
    Epi-Otic is great and Epi-Otic Advanced is great. Epi-Otic Advanced has a more potent mix of acid and a very fresh smell compared with regular Epi-Otic. The smell is clean and purifying rather than obnoxious. I very much appreciate this since I am currently fostering a mini poodle with Malassezia pachydermatis (yeast)/Pseudomonas ear infection. This cleanser helps break up the bio-film of Pseudomonas which is a major cause for why this organism resists antibiotic treatment. Allergic dogs are more prone to ear infections because antigens cause the skin inside the ear canal to be compromised and vulnerable to opportunistic yeast. I think all allergic dogs should be on a regular/preventative ear cleaning schedule with Epi-Otic or Epi-Otic Advanced. As a volunteer for a Poodle rescue group, I really appreciate EntirelyPets for providing the very best, cutting edge products at the very best prices. Additionally, they are streamline and ship products promptly with $5 flat rate shipping and weekly coupons. Our rescue group could not save as many dogs without EntirelyPets.

    Snoop Dog and Foxy Brown will be 14 years old and I have been cleaning their ears weekly with Epi-Otic Advanced Ear Cleaner. Not once have they ever had an ear infection. This product also makes their ears smell good and they love when I clean their ears.
