    Default Update/bad mommy

    I always try to put cotton balls in Ramsay ears when bathing him, but he always shakes them out! Hope Rebel heals up quickly!

    It could be that but really, don't be too hard on yourself - it could be anything. I had one ear infection prone bully and, if I looked at him the wrong way, he got an ear infection!

    Once you start using the cotton balls, keep a close eye on things because if the ear infection is chronic, it might be allergies.

    I agree it could be anything, the way Bacon's ears are we can't get them to stay in when he gets a bath so we are just careful to not get water in there.

    Loki normally shakes out his cotton balls too. I try my very best to keep them in there but sometimes he doesn't want it so it's Lokis way or no way. Hopefully meds will help it clear up soon!

    I didn't know about the cotton balls in the ears I will do this in the future when bathing Shelly Bean. I have an ear flush the vet gave us and I use it after bath time. Am I doing it wrong? Should I be doing the ear flush first then bathing?

    i dont put cotton balls in sarahs ears and ive never had a problem. of course i dont bath sarahs head when im bathing her i do that seperate if needed otherwise i leave well enough alone. @Jennifer Clark you can do the ears after the bath if you want then make sure they are dry.

    I have the ear wash for the ears. It's a drying agent so it's good for after bath to make sure the ears dry completely.
