Hi all, I would just like a few tips really as to the best way to clean a basset's ears and when I say ears I mean the outer not the inner. I have no problems at all cleaning the inside of them but the outsides are a nightmare! Within a day of bathing they are sooooo crusty from being dragged around everything while he is sniffing around and they are almost impossible to clean without shampoo.

Cheers!

yup. baby wipes. and same as annie...if it's been a particulary nasty drag day, or if he's had a bone, his ears are stiff and terrible with go, i get a warm washcloth and hold his ears for a few seconds with it, so it soaks in wet and then i wipe wipe wipe til it all comes off. : )

I swear by huggies brand of baby wipes. It will even get stains out of clothes lol. My vet told us to use them to clean the inner ear on Flash, but make sure and buy that brand the others don't hold up as well.

Often the edges of my ears turn black from getting caked w/dirt & mud-- yuck!

We've always used baby wipes too-- we are currently using Pampers, sensitive care (was thinking there'd be less chemicals & perfume), THICK wipes. we tried the thin, and they weren't sturdy enough.

everytime i come back from playing, megets my feet wiped, under my chin (sometimes there's dirt), ears, and bum.
