Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is Aromacare Pet Ear Wipes. I have tried a variety of different products for this need and have settled on these. As many of you know we have three dogs. A giant German Shepard named Max, a Pit-Pointer Mix named Charlie and a Pitskey named Lucy. A Pitskey is a Siberian Husky crossed with a Pit Bull by the way.
I use this product on all of them. They get a good ear cleaning on the first of the month when they get their heart worm medication. Simple and easy to remember. For Charlie and Lucy this is all they need. Generally a bit of gunk comes out of both of them but it isn’t much. Their ears stay clean and don’t put off any odors at all.
Max though has always been a problem pup when it comes to his ears, and worse he doesn’t really like having them cleaned. I don’t know if you have ever tried to get a 150 pound dog to do something he doesn’t want to do, but it is a hell of a case for good training. Charlie and Lucy seem to actually enjoy getting their ears cleaned but not Max, it is like dealing with a giant pouting puppy every time.
But we get it done and it works. Before I found these I had to clean his ears about 1-3 times a week, depending on the time of the year. Some nights he’d wake me up shaking his head because his ears bothered him badly. I’d have to get up and deal with his sulking and clean his ears at 2 AM.
Now I simply clean Max’s on the 1st and 15th or any time he just seems to need it, and even he seems to remain clear, happy and free of the dreaded “stinky ear”. As the label indicates they use a combination of Aloe and Eucalyptus oil.
This certainly is not some beyond organic all natural product and it has some conventional ingredients but nothing I consider truly harmful and above all they work. And they work damn good. The price is right at 8 dollars for 100 pads and at my use rate one pack of 100 lasts me about a year. Note that they may not last as long for you if you have more dogs or a pup with a real problem needing a lot more cleaning.
On Max this is what I did, when I got them I cleaned his ears once a day for a week, he was not happy about this. I then went to once a week for a month, then went to my routine of twice a month. I have been doing that now for about 2 years and he has stayed for the most part a happy and clean eared canine. Oh and anytime we do an ear cleaning or any procedure the dogs don’t like it ends with a treat. It doesn’t take the canine brain long to realize, okay I don’t like this but there is some chicken jerky in it for me.
Anyway if you want to keep your packs ears in top notch shape, I recommend checking out Aromacare Pet Ear Wipes today. I think you will quickly see why they have 4.5 out of 5 stars with over 4400 reviews.
