The Epi-Otic Advanced Ear Cleanser can be used for the cleaning of ear canals with extreme otitis externa, or for the treatment of otitis externa prior to other ear preparations. In dogs and cats of any age, it can be used.
Prior to use, shake well. Turn the white nozzle into the ear canal to open the product and then apply it freely. Gently massage the base of the ear and then use cotton or a cloth moistened with Epi-Otic Advanced Ear Cleanser to wash the inside of the ear flap.
Use from two to three times a week to daily for routine use, before each ear treatment in the case of otitis externa, or as directed by your veterinarian.

Excellent at cleaning ears, dislodges stubborn big balls of wax. Great as a drying ear solution, helps keep yeast and bacteria at bay. One thing in particular that bothers me is the smell. It has an extremely strong detergent smell that is pleasant in small quantities but if your cat/dog has the habit of struggling during ear cleaning, their entire face will end up smelling like it. It definitely puts me off quite a bit as it is very pungent.
ears still smell alright, look dry and are clean after a week
Our cat has very sticky ear wax and this has worked well for us so far.
