    Question Rinsing Out Ears

    I was wondering if anyone rinses there dogs ears out after they have been in the water? I have been hearing people talk about it, but I have never thought about rinsing them after a long day of training in the water. If so, please let me know a good rinse to use. Thanks

    I've had dogs that got ear infections, and dogs that never got ear infections.

    The only thing I have figured out, is ONE of the dogs that had chronic ear problems, never had another ear infection after I switched his food.

    I wish, we could just breed away from ear problems. There are so many "home remedies" that we won't ever know if any of them actually work. I would rather have dogs that just don't have the problem in the first place.

    This is what I do with my dog and I was told to do so by my vet. My dog gets chronic ear infections if I don't rinse her ears.

    Ditto, found this really helps, as it works as a drying agent.

    Forgot about Mr Ear Infection. But that is the first that I have heard about the vinegar & alcohol. After it was first posted I did some research. I am going to start rinsing with it just because of Cooper having problems during swim-by. I hope that I am ready. Will know Sat. Still working on the reel. It still has not dried on the inside!!
