Between going on walks, playing outside, and exploring their environment, your dog is exposed to many forms of dirt and bacteria on a daily basis. While such exposure is to be expected, an unhealthy buildup of dirt in your pet’s ears can cause infection, balance issues, and other health concerns.

At Walk! ATX, we’re committed to taking good care of your dog. Our full bath and groom includes a wide variety of services, including ear inspection and cleaning. Our ear cleaning services are specifically targeted to protect the health and well-being of your pets as they continue to play and explore the outdoors. We offer cleanings to all dogs and are excited to take care of your pet and make their cleaning as fun and safe as possible.

We can schedule an ear cleaning for your dog at our headquarters or we may be able to do an in-home cleaning, depending on whether your home meets our safety qualifications. If you have questions or wish to set up an appointment, call the Austin dog bathing and grooming experts of  Walk! ATX today at (512) 655-9557.

    Benefits of Regular Ear Cleaning for Dogs

    Checking your dog’s ear canals regularly is a good practice to make sure they are clear and free of excess dirt and wax. At Walk! ATX, however, we realize that it’s not easy for everyone to do this themselves. That’s why we offer ear inspections and cleaning services.

    Our services are set up to make your pet comfortable, clear the ear canal, and properly clean the interior and exterior of the ear. In some cases, dogs can get rocks, dirt, leaves, and weeds wedged in their ears, which can cause infection and even life-threatening conditions. Having a professional regularly check and clean your dog’s ears can prevent the risk of serious injury or illness.

    How We Clean Your Dog’s Ears

    There are several steps we take to make sure your dog feels safe and secure as we perform our ear cleaning services.

    • We begin by performing an ear inspection. This is a measure we have in place to make sure the folds of the ear are clear before we begin our cleaning procedure. Generally, this is to remove any larger obstructions from the interior of the ear, such as grass, rocks, and sticks that may be lodged in the ear canal or within the folds of the ear.
    • After removing any larger obstructions, we make sure the ears are in an open and accessible position and we carefully apply a cleansing powder to each ear. This is a topical treatment that gently cleanses the folds of the ear without causing irritation.
    • Next, we use sterile cotton swabs to apply an ear cleaning solution to your dog’s ears. We avoid using more invasive applicators such as Q-tips in an effort to keep your pet as calm and secure as possible. This step allows us to clear away any dirt or excess wax that may have collected in the ear canal.
    • Finally, we gently dry your pet’s ears so that they don’t experience any discomfort.

    These steps have been carefully implemented so that we can ensure your pet has an enjoyable experience while having their ears cleaned. We do our best to include our pet owners throughout the process so that they can rest assured that their dogs are being well cared for.
