\r\n Sorry if this has been asked before, but I can\'t find anything related under search. Well, I am little worry about Champ\'s ears. I have just noticed a lot of excessive earwax in his ears. I usually use wet towel to clean his ears after the bath and dry them, but he is scratching his eras a lot lately and I think maybe he has mites or something else. Can anyone give my some advice about how to clean them properly and help him with the itching?

\r\nThanks..\r\n

    \r\n sometime moisture gets trapped in the ears and causes infections. Your best bet would be to take him to a vet to make sure it is not ear mites first and they can also give you ear drops to help with the itching.

    \nBadger had a ear infection last year when the rainy weather started because he always sticks his head in the wet grass etc... moisture would get in his hears.

    \nI get pet wipes from the vets office that are made with aloe. They are great and much easier to clean then with drops and cotton balls. I clean them once a week as a ritual.\r\n

    \r\n Hi, I have 3 beagles, and they all get ear infections a couple of times a year. I wash them with a washrag often, and even gently use Q tips with a little drop of baby oil on them. You have to be careful about that, they get kind of fidgety!
    \nI also got some ear cleaning drops at pet smart and us them weekly. My one (the boy) has allergies like crazy, so he has a particular problem with his ears, and scratches them until they are really red. He has to take benadryl daily for his allergies.
    \nWhen they do get an infection in their ears, the doctor gives them an antibiotic and ear drops too. The ear drops have to be kept in the fridge, so they really, really do not like them. So, keep on cleaning!! It is easier than chasing them around behind the couch when they hide from you with the ear drop bottle!!!
    \nI would love to find a way to pin their ears up for a while each day so the air could get in there and dry them out a little bit!! Maybe I will invent "Beagle Barrettes" to solve the problem!!
    \nGotta love them, they are just like kids!!\r\n

    \r\n Take this for what it\'s worth. Some old timers years ago put me on this and it works for ear problem such as ear mites and ear wax build up. Clean the inside of the hounds ear the best you can with mild soap and water. Dry completely. Now get a can of WD-40, squirt some liquid into the cap that comes with the can. Take a Q tip and dip it into the liquid then apply it to the inside of the ear. Just a small amount. Don\'t spray directly into the dogs ear. I\'ve used this method for years and it works everytime. What\'s even better, I\'ve never had to re-treat a hound for the same condition. I don\'t no why it works but it does.\r\n

    Try oat bran cereal in it\'s daily diet. Hardens loose stools and softens hard stools. A lot cheaper than medications such as pancur. Bet it will work. If you see no change in a week then consult your Vet.\r\n

    \r\n I have 3 Beagle and despite using an ear cleaner with a drying agent, one of my Beagles got an ear infection while visiting damp San Francisco. Vet said as he was also licking his feet, he probably had allergies. I now do his ears twice a week. Most long-earred dogs are prone to ear infections as there is not much air circulating around the ear.\r\n
