Grooming for Labradoodle – Ear Cleaning
Cleaning your Doodle’s ears should be part of your regular at-home grooming schedule. Dogs’ ear canals, particularly the hairy and narrow ones, are generally warm and moist, which makes them a haven for bacteria. It can lead to repetitive ear infections, and in severe cases, the dog can go deaf or require an operation to change the shape of his ear canal.
How to Pluck Your Doodle’s Ear Hair?
If your dog is a low or minimal shedder, then the hair inside the ear flap should be regularly plucked. You can also do this at home or ask your groomer to do it during the visits. If you do pluck the hair yourself, don’t overdo it. Keep an eye out for redness or inflammation of the ear flap or inner ear. You can also ask your groomer for tips.
How to Clean Your Doodle’s Ears?
Some owners or a veterinary ear cleaner bathe the inner ears of the doodles with cotton wool and warm water. If your Doodle’s ears have an unpleasant smell, if he scratches them a lot or they look red, then consult your vet. Simple routine ear cleaning won’t clear up an infection, and ear infections are notoriously difficult to rid once the dog has one. Keeping your Labradoodle’s ears clean and not too hairy is the best way to avoid infections starting in the first place.
