I would imagine for it to be ok if you have purchased the product from a Pet-shop. It's not a veterinary product or anything is it?

its not veterinarian.

I just got nervous after finding out that rawhide is so bad for dogs - yet of course all pet shops even vets sell them.

So now i double check on everything I buy....

its made by gold medal - called clean ears - for dogs and cats to dissolve ear wax

uh - there is no ingredient list - it has aloe thats all it says... maybe i SHOULD avoid using it

Maybe your being a little too causcious with this one, I understand that you have been shocked by previous products but this one seems o.k to me.

I've been using similar drops just for maintenance cleaning. I put a couple drops in their ears, gently massage at the base and let them shake it out. I don't squirt it in her ear, I just do a couple of drops like you would do eye drops for your eyes.

I know someone whose dog had an ear infection - the vet gave them ear drops and instructed them to do this as well to keep the ear canals clean.

Remember to keep their ears clean by pulling the hair inside too. A good video showing how to do this is at YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mi3Aouu3e4.

You can find the powder at your local pet supplies store. They use something called a hemostat for deeper hairs, I've used tweezers with no problem, but then again my dogs sit very still for me. Be careful when using anything other than you fingers to pull out the ear hair.
