Cleaning Your Dog's Ears

One of the most common sources for dog health problems is their ears. Let's face it... they are moist, warm, dark places, especially in floppy-eared breeds, so they are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, yeast, and little parasites called ear mites. Paying attention to your dogs ears and keeping them healthy can save you and your dog trouble and suffering down the road.

Before talking about cleaning, let's start with inspecting the ear. Take a good look at the inside of the outer ear (basically, the visible part). A healthy dog ear should be light pink, clean, and have no dominant foul odor. Granted, dogs may still smell doggy, even at the peak of health, but an ear infection typically will have a very foul smell. Best bet... sniff your dog's ears regularly! He may give you a funny look at first, but he'll get used to it. After a visit to the vet where his ears have been given the OK, smell his ears and get an idea of what "normal" smells like. Then, you will be more prepared to recognize any abnormal smells should they arise.

Glen of Imaal Terrier
Recently we rescued of Glen of Imaal from our local SPCA. She is 4 yrs old and is a very focused little girl. A mind of her own, not real affectionate, but very loyal at the same time. She has trained me well.

Akita
I've owned 2 male Akitas. They've both been very healthy, low maintenance, friendly to humans, have lived with other pets but are NOT good with other males. Don't require a great deal of exercise.. A walk twice a day is plenty. Mine chew ice cubes after a walk. Neither of them showed any real interest in chewing anything else, but this has proven to keep their teeth and gums healthy and it's kind of funny, too. Can't sing their praises enough. Wonderful family membe

Coton de Tulear
My frenid Joan in My frenid Joan in Toronto was featured on Dogs With Jobs in Canada about 10 years ago. She had´╗┐ a standard poodle named Morgan as her narcolepsy service dog, and to our knowledge he was the first in the world. Joan now has Shaba as her service dog. Because the collapses in narcolepsy are actually paralysis (cataplexy) rather than sleep, Shaba's job is to drag her to a safe place when she's going to collapse, and stand over her and protect her while she's down.

Brussels Griffon Information
The Brussels Griffon is a breed of toy dog named for the griffin, a mythological animal, which it is said to resemble. The Brussels griffon seems to have descended from a dog used by 17th-century Belgian peasants to rid their stables of rats. The ancestry of the modern breed includes the Affenpinscher, the Smooth-Coated Pug, and the Ruby Spaniel.
