When it comes to caring for a dog, the ears are often a particular problem spot. They always seem to be dirty, and if you have a breed with folded or pendulous ears, then chances are you have many problems.
Ears, especially if they hang, can be a breeding ground for bacteria, and they are often where much of your dog’s bad odor comes from. In fact, if you find that your dog has been unusually malodorous, then you can often find the problem in the ears.
While they can be very easy to clean, ears are often overlooked in the grooming process. It is important to clean your dog’s ears at least once per week, and more often if you have a breed with ear problems. They should be checked regularly, to prevent infections and other problems from occurring.
And that is what this book is all about: teaching you how to properly care for your dog’s ears to ensure that he stays healthy and happy.
