Does anyone's hound dogs lick each others ears ? Lucy sticks her nose as far down Ethel's ear as she can and then just goes to town and licks and licks and licks. I think Ethel has the cleanest ears in town. I'm not sure but I think I saw Lucy's tongue come out the other ear yesterday LOL.
I'm wondering if anyone knows what to use to clean a Basset's ears? I read somewhere that you can mix a solution of vinegar (I think). I can't find the mixture and I've run out of the cleanser from the vet. I'm wanting to try the home remedy before I buy more.
Diana,The solution you are thinking of is equal parts lukewarm white vinegar&distilled water.`You gently flush the ear with it let him shake and then use cotton wool balls to press inside the ear and dry it up`(once or twice per week).It is good for bassets because of the humid conditions inside the ear. I tend to use unscented babywipes to clean Toby's ears.I wrap it round my finger and gently clean as far as I can go.So far he's never had a problem with ears.
