Spring Pet Ear Cleaner for Dogs and Cats
~ a Review ~
Disclosure: I received a bottle of Spring Pet Ear Cleaner for Dogs and Cats in order to write this review post. I am not being compensated in any other form for helping spread the word about this product. Spring Pet Products is not responsible for the content of this article, and the opinions are my own. The final approval (or disapproval) comes from Jake, our rescue dog. However, this post contains affiliate links from Amazon and I may receive a teeny tiny commission from any purchase you make from a link on this page.
A couple of weeks ago, Jon and I noticed that Jake was giving a little cry every time he shook his head. He was lethargic and didn’t care to go out hiking or for a ride, which is unusual for Jake. We had a look-see and noticed a lot of debris in his ears. I put ‘dog ear cleaner’ on my shopping list and made an appointment with the vet.
A day or two after that, I was contacted by Spring Pet Products, asking if I would be willing to do a review on their Spring Pet Ear Cleaner for Dogs and Cats. I said yes, and they sent me a bottle to try. The bottle arrived before the appointment day so we went ahead and decided to give it a whirl.
About Ear Infections in Dogs and Cats
Ear infections are very common problems in both dogs and cats. Parasites, such as ear mites, can irritate the ear and lead to secondary infections. Their ear canals are longer and deeper than ours, which can lead to a warm, dark moist environment that bacteria and yeast love to grow in. Hormonal imbalances and allergies can also lead to problems in your pet’s ears.
Cleaning your pet’s ears should be part of your grooming routine to remove excess wax and debris that can harbor harmful micro-organisms. Spring Pet’s product is specifically formulated to deodorize, dry, acidify and gently clean your pet’s ears without stinging. The solution is gentle enough to use every day, after bathing or swimming to help dry the ear.
Spring Pet Ear Cleaner for Dogs and Cats is so easy to use:
- Just fill the ear canal with the cleansing solution.
- Massage the base of the ear to loosen the debris and wax.
- Let your dog or cat shake its head.
- Gently clean out the ear canal using a cotton ball. (Q-tips have a tendency to push the debris deeper into the ear canal, so be very careful if you use Q-tips.)
If the ears are super dirty, you can do this process 2 or 3 times a day for several days. Having your dog or cat shake its head after the gentle massages help to dislodge the gunk faster.
Here is the initial picture I took of the inside of his ear — a yeast infection.
Jake has floppy ears, making him a good candidate for debris and infection. (Read below)
Because of the twisty, curvy design of a dog’s inner ears, it’s easy for parasites, bacteria and yeast to hide and thrive in them. This also means that any debris in the canal must work its way up to escape. Infections can result from trapped debris. Dogs with allergies are particularly vulnerable, as are those with floppy ears, like Cocker spaniels, basset hounds and poodles. ASPCA
If you notice redness, swelling, painful ears, foul odor, or the debris does not resolve after a few days of use, please seek the advice of your veterinarian for further diagnostics and treatment.
The Final Verdict
I’ll let the last picture I took of Jake’s ear canal speak for itself. Much better, right?
We decided to keep our appointment with Jake’s vet, just to be sure that all was well. The vet was impressed at how well Jake’s ears had been cleaned. She saw the start of a yeast infection, so it was good that we caught it before it went much further.
Jake is doing so much better now. As fast as the very next day he was back to his old self, excitable and wanting to play. There was no more crying if he shook his head, and it was obvious that he was on the mend.
What do I like about it?
- It’s gentle enough to use every day.
- It cleans the ear quickly of wax and debris.
- It’s super easy to use.
- It contains Aloe Vera and Vitamins A, D, E & F.
- It can be used prior to giving prescription otic medications for treatment of ear infections.
- It smells GOOD – Cucumber Melon Scent – one of my favorites.
