You’ve seen them come in, shaking their heads, scratching their ears until they bleed or ooze smelly discharge – dogs with ear infections are a regular occurrence in both the shelter world and in veterinary offices.
PetPoint Journal #23 issued August 1st 2008 indicated that 3.5% of the 1.3 million animal intakes through PetPoint during 2006 and 2007 were afflicted with an ear infection at some point during their stay with the animal welfare community. 10% of all ShelterCare dog claims are for ear infections. But ear infections are not just a problem in the shelter world, 14% of all PetCare claims for dogs that have not been in the care of the animal welfare sector are for ear infections and in this sector the risk of re-infection rises to 9%.
It is well known that when it comes to ear infections – an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure – but dogs’ ears are very sensitive and many dogs do not like to have their ears cleaned. This can be a huge problem for staff and volunteers in the animal welfare world who daily face the challenge of cleaning the ears of a dog with an unknown temperament in an effort to practice good disease control protocol. For this reason Pethealth has teamed up with a Canadian company to distribute a veterinarian approved new and innovative product, Dog-Eared, that offers simple and trauma free ear-cleaning for dogs.
Dog-Eared is available in two sizes, one for puppies and small breeds and the other for large breeds. This all natural product safely and effectively washes away ear wax build up from dogs’ ears leaving them healthy, clean and less susceptible to ear infections. The Dog-Eared applicator is a patented reverse spray nozzle that has been specially created to fit the unique structure of a dog’s ears and reverse the excess fluid, debris and wax safely out of the ear canal.
This product has already received strong praise!
“I used it on one large dog whose ears looked ok, but who was shaking his head. One treatment, and now he acts fine! I will continue to use it”
