Ear and Eye Care For Dogs
An essential element of dog grooming is ensuring that the ears and eyes are cared for properly. You need to examine the internal and external area of the ears. There are certain signs that indicate an ear infection, unpleasant smells, head shaking & ear scratching due to irritation, ear discharge, head tilt, rubbing the ears on furniture/flooring, inflammation around its opening and sensitiveness around the head area.
If you notice any of these signs immediately consult a veterinarian, he/she will advise you to use a suitable dog ear infection medication. You can find dog ear infection drops such as Ayurvet Ostosaf at Petsworld. This is a chemical free herbal formulation to treat mild ear infections. In case of a severe ear problem it can be used along with antibiotics. Wax deposited on the outside can be cleaned in a gentle manner using warm water and cotton.
Dog moms and dads also need to monitor their pups’ eyes for redness, puffiness, eye discharge, irritation, squinting or keeping an eye closed, change in eye color and cloudiness. In case you notice a problem consult the vet at the earliest, since eye problems can worsen quickly . The doctor may prescribe dog eye drops to tackle injury, infection or illness. Healthy eyes are clear, bright and symmetrical with equally sized pupils.
To clean tearing/crust around the eyes’ corners you can use Beaphar Oftal tear stain remover, available at Petsworld. It is suitable for all dog breeds. Gently wipe the affected areas with a cotton ball soaked in this solution.
