Importance of checking and cleaning your pet's ears.
Checking and cleaning your dog's or cat's ears is very important to their overall health. Prevention of ear wax buildup and mites in their ears can mean the difference between a very happy healthy pet or expensive trips to the vet. When checking your dog or cat's ears, make sure they are calm and in a quiet environment. Most pets don't like their ears messed with.
