Do you need to clean dog's ears?
To clean normal ears, choose a mild ear cleaner specifically designed to be used on pets.
It's generally best to avoid vinegar, alcohol, and hydrogen peroxide, which can irritate the skin of some dogs and be painful to an already inflamed ear canal.
There are several types of cleaners to choose from.
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.
