safe home made ear cleaner

Top Review by Catnip46

I used this on 2 cats and 3 dogs. Unfortunately the last dog in line saw what was going on, ran away and hid. It took me awhile but I found him. I found out cats can shake their heads a lot faster than dogs. I also found out it take 1/1000 of a second for those claws to come out and that
cats can hold a grudge a lot longer than dogs. Made for 2012 Cookbook Tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. mix ingredients in equal parts into a squirt bottle. I like to use a new hair color bottle since it has a very long tip and narrow spout for squirting into dogs long ear canal. The vinegar kills yeast and bacteria and acidifies the ear canal. The alcohol helps to dry the ear so there isnt excess solution lingering.
  2. Squirt the solution into dogs ear and hold your dogs head for a couple mins to allow the solution to work.
  3. Use cotton balls to absorb as much of the solution as feasible before allowing dog to shake its head.
