    Default Ears and inner ears

    My Charlotte has what looks like dried blood in parts of her ear, not sure though, she never scratches doesn't appear uncomfortable. Any suggestions for cleaning them out? I tried damp cotton balls without much success. Mineral oil was a suggestion I received but I am reluctant. We have had zero ear issues so far....

    We use a tea tree oil-containing ear cleaner about twice a month, but I use dry kleenex and elbow grease everyday to get the wax out. Every few months I use some ear drops prescribed by the vet just to keep things at bay. If you have witch hazel, use that on a thin washcloth and see if gentle wipes can break up the buildup. I wouldn't use water or mineral oil, unless only on the cloth. If the build up is blackish it could be yeast buildup, and douxo wipes containing chlorhexidine will help. We use douxo once in a while in Lola's ears, but mostly on toes and tail pocket.

    I use witch hazel on a cotton ball to clean out their ears, or like @aprilemari mentioned the duoxo pads work great too.
