Keeping our pets clean is not only important to their overall health, but also their self esteem. I’ve always felt that dogs and cats that are dirty or matted seem to carry themselves with less confidence when they are well-groomed and cared for. Maybe I’m just reading too much into it. But, either way, a pet’s hygiene is still essential to good health.
Have you ever wondered why your dog may smell like Fritos? Or may you are wondering how to stop your dog from itching his ears or head. Does it seem like your cat is constantly shaking his head? Or your cat or dog has dirty ears.
If your dog or cat’s ears have an odor or smell or seem sensitive to the touch, the first thing I would do is take him into your veterinarian. You want to make sure your pet does not have any ear infection or ear disease. You don’t want to clean your cat’s ears or your dog’s ears if he has an underlying medical condition. You first must address that. Your veterinarian may also talk to you about changing your pet’s diet to a raw pet food or home cooked pet food for optimal nutrition.
Even with a good diet and health, you may need to clean your cat’s ears or clean your dog’s ears on a regular basis. Especially for dogs that like to roll around, nobody likes dirty dog ears or dirty cat ears. When you are looking for the best ear cleaner for cats or the best ear cleaner for dogs, it is important to do your research on the actual ingredients inside your pet’s ear cleaner.
Once again, it’s time to look for a natural ear cleaner for dogs and cats and flip over the bottle and read the entire ingredient panel. Remember, it’s not the front of the bottle, that’s a brand’s advertising, it’s the ingredient panel. There are ingredients in some pet ear cleaners like sodium benzoate and sodium hydroxide that have side-effects including organ toxicity. These are ingredients that I don’t feel should be in my pet’s grooming products. Why take a chance when there are other, effective natural pet grooming and ear care solutions like Pura Naturals Pet’s Pura-Tips Ear Cleansing System.
The Pura-Tips Ear Cleansing System is not only an organic ear care product, it is also eco-friendly and made in the USA. How cool is that? This pet ear cleaning kit comes with an organic ear cleansing serum and 25 reusable foam pura tips. The organic ear cleaner is made with organic olive oil, organic witch hazel, organic mullen and organic chamomile and nothing else. It does not contain any chemicals, fragrances or preservatives.
The organic mullein oil acts as a natural disinfectant, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. Mullein oil can also protect from infections. The organic witch hazel acts as a natural astringent and deodorizer. It also helps in breaking up wax buildup.
The Pura-Tips are pretty neat. I’m sure you’ve heard that you should not use Q-tips inside your dog or cat’s ears. The problem is that these Q-tips can go too far down in the ear canal and cause damage to your pet’s inner ear canal. The soft, yet sturdy Pura-Tips are shaped to help ensure that they won’t go too far into your pet’s ear. They are narrow at the start and widen to prevent inserting too far into your pet’s ear. The Pura-Tips can be cleaned with hot water and reused. They are made from plant-based materials and without the use of petrochemicals and leave a negative carbon footprint. Not only are they safe and effective for your pet, but they are environmentally friendly.
Pura Naturals Pet’s Pura-Tips Ear Cleansing System checks out for a product I feel confident in using and trying with both Dexter The Dog and Nutter The Cat. So, let’s see how this ear cleaner for pets works. The directions suggest shaking the natural ear cleaning solution well and apply two drops to the opening of the ear canal. Once the natural ear solution is in the ear canal, massage the base of the ear to evenly distribute the solution into the ear canal. With the Pura-Tips, spread and remove any excess liquid by swabbing the outer ear canal. And that’s it.
I am happy to say that both Dexter and Nutter were troopers for their ear cleanings. Pura Naturals Pet’s Pura-Tips Ear Cleansing System was easy to use and both pets tolerated the procedure. What I really liked about the product, besides all the wonderful and natural ingredients, is that the ear cleaner did not give off any odor. I can put the cleanser to my nose and smell a faint smell of the organic ingredients, but I did not smell it while cleaning either pet’s ears. The other benefit is that their ears are not wet! I remember the days of cleaning service dog’s ears and their ears would be wet from the solution and stink. But, this is not the case with this product.
Pura Naturals Pet’s Pura-Tips Ear Cleansing System definitely is a natural pet ear cleaner that I can confidently recommend. The brand’s mission says it all. Our mission is simple. Pura Naturals Pet™ is dedicated to delivering the highest quality products using only the best materials the Earth has to offer. I am so thankful that Pura Naturals Pet is stepping up to the plate to help ensure our pet’s health and safety are important. If your pet’s health and keeping them clean, healthy and happy are important to you, I urge you to hop on over to their website, they offer a wide variety of natural pet care products. Tell them that Dexter The Dog and Nutter The Cat sent you.
