When should you clean your dogs ears ?

You should clean out your dog’s ears at least 2/3 times a month. You can use an ear cleaner made for dogs or warm salty water on a cotton ball. It’s natural to see a little bit of dirt on the cotton ball after swiping the inside of your dog’s ear, but if the cotton ball comes out gunky or stinky, your dog likely has an ear infection and needs a trip to the vet
