wasn’t really sure where to put this but i’ve forgotten how to make the ear cleaner??
i’m sure it was 20 drops of 1% gelatin violet, ??g of boric acid and then what was the alcohol we should use again? and how much of it? ???March 26, 2009 at 8:13 am #86593SuzAndTheDivaMember
Blue Power Ear Wash Recipe
16 Oz. Isopropyl Alcohol
4 Tablespoons Boric Acid Powder
16 Drops Gentian Violet Solution 1%
Mix together in alcohol bottle and shake well.
Please shake this solution every time you use it to mix the Boric Acid Powder. Either a baby ear syringe or a plastic squirt bottle work well for putting the solution in the ear.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Evaluate condition of ears before treating and if the are inflamed and sore do not attempt to pull hair or clean out ear at all. Just flush and then wait until inflammation is gone, which will be about two days. Warm the solution and shake the bottle each time before using. The dogs will accept the treatment much better if you warm it up for them.
Flood the ear with solution (gently squirt bottle).
Massage gently, wipe with 100% cotton pad.
On first treatment: flood the ear twice, wipe with a pad, and leave alone without massage.
The dog will shake out the excess, which can be wiped with a tissue. (Note: the Gentian Violet does stain fabrics so you’re best to do this outdoors.)
Treat 2x per day for the first week to two weeks, depending upon severity of ears.
After the 2nd or 3rd day you can clean out the ear with a tissue or cotton pad.
Treat 1x per day for the next 1-2 weeks.
Treat 1x per month (or even less frequently, depending on the dog).
Need this as a sticky again 🙂March 26, 2009 at 8:43 am #86594**Woofums**Member
I used to make my own (similar to this) for the Horses ears in summer.
I now use Quistel ear cleaner for the Dogs…same kind of thing & works brilliantly.March 26, 2009 at 9:23 am #86595

I remember comparing the Quistel ingredients with Vals cleaner and they are similar 🙂 I love all Quistel products, I always use their shampoo for Piper 🙂March 26, 2009 at 9:28 pm #86600SuzAndTheDivaMember
