The regularity with which you clean your dog's ears depends on your pet's breed, coat, level of activity, age, and ear wax production.

We recommend that most dogs with normal ears have cleanings at least once a month.

Others may need more frequent cleanings, especially those that regularly swim or get their ears wet.

Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.

Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.

Safe: Some Vegetables.

Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.

Even a plain baked potato is OK.

Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
