Pura Naturals Pet’s Pura-Tips Ear Cleansing System Review
Disclaimer: This is a sponsored review from Pura Naturals Pet. However, I will always offer my readers an unbiased and honest account of my experiences. Your trust is very appreciated, and never taken for granted. ~Tonya, Dexter and Nutter
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.

Love the idea of the ear swab cleaners being pet-designed. Great natural ingredients, too.
Thanks, Amy. I think Pura Naturals Pet swabs are pretty cool too! Both Dexter and Nutter tolerated them well.
This looks great! The war swabs look like they are really designed to go a good job. I love Pura Naturals & will have to check this out.
Thanks, Tricia. Yes, those swabs worked really well.
These look amazing, especially the swabs!! Two in our pack need special care of the ears and I’m really impressed to see this product. I’ll totally look into it!
Wonderful! I hope you entered the contest too, 3 Pura Naturals Pet’s Pura-Tip Systems will be given away! Good luck.
One of the cats and all the dogs need to have their ears cleaned regularly.
I’d check out this product for sure! It’s a very natural and gentle solution. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
My cats are not big on having their ears cleaned, but with a product like this with swabs, it might just make it easier for me and for the cats.
Nutter tolerated it really well. I’ve cleaned his ears before with a cotton ball, and he fussed a lot with the cotton ball. Now, with these Pura Tips, he was very calm and I was able to really pay attention to what I was doing…no joke!
We have a cat as well that needs weekly ear cleaning, prior to us creating the Pura-Tips we used the wipes, which was difficult and our cat never sat through the whole process. Our cat doesn’t seem to mind the tips at all we think because they are so soft and easy to he remains nice and calm 🙂
Wow, this looks great! Henry had an ear infection once and, thankfully, hasn’t had any issues since. He HATES having his ears cleaned, but these special swabs look much more bearable than the liquid that globs out of the bottle too quickly and gets everywhere when he shakes. Very cool!
Thanks. Yes, there wasn’t any of that wet gooey mess after head shaking! And their ears didn’t smell like a chemical soup.
I’m always in favour of natural products where possible. The ear swabs seems like a great idea too.
Thanks. I think these pet swabs are amazing!
One of my senior rescues has ear troubles. His ears need to be cleaned often. I prefer a natural product for my guy.
Pura Naturals Pets’ ear cleaning solution is a great natural, nothing yucky inside solution. You should check them out. Good luck with the contest.
I must be lucky … my little dude has never needed it … not by me or my vet on his check-ups. He seems to have his “natural” balance going on there. Plus given his 3 pound size and thus tiny tiny ears… probably a good thing!
Mine too. Nutter The Cat can get a little dirty, but not too much. Dexter has been clean for 7-years.
A terrific review! The company has developed a system that any pet parent would be happy to use!
I love how the video shows that it’s not hard to do!
Thanks, Dash. The system is very easy to use. I also felt confident I wouldn’t push it down too far with the the stopper. Great design!
Thank you Dash Kitten Crew, we are really happy with our Ear Cleansing System and we hope pet owners will be too! The Pura-Tips were designed to be safe and easy to use 🙂
This looks easy enough to use and I like the fact that it is natural.
Thanks. Ingredients are always my first priority. Ease was second. Winner in both departments.
Pinned It! I LOVE this! I always thought dogs feet smelled like Fritos lol but some of my pets DO have dry ears and they shake their heads to let me know when they are dirty. I LOVE that someone made this specialized product to clean pet ears!
Thanks, Joely. Yes, that smell is usually yeast overgrowth. It’s Pur Naturals Pet’s cleaning system is really a great product and design.
I love the idea of the swabs as keeping ears clean can be hard when you are using cotton as I feel that I don’t get them as clean as I want
Yes! And sometimes that cotton gets left behind. These pura tips are amazing.
One of my dogs has allergies and she has had a few ear infections as well. The vet thinks there is a connection between them and told me to start cleaning her ears once a week to be proactive. The pura tips look like they would get the ears clean, but not cause any damage to my dog’s ears.
Thanks, Beth. I would definitely look at Pura Natural’s Pet’s ear cleaning system. It does not contain any harsh chemicals, is not stinky and does not leave the ears all nasty. It would be a nice regular product for you. If your dog’s ears are yeasty/stinky/red it may be yeast. Yeast thrives on carbs (potatoes, lentils, peas, starch etc), so check that diet.
I love the Pura tips! Looks like they would really make cleaning much easier and more comfortable for dogs and cats. I would love to try these products and will enter the giveaway now.
Good luck with the contest! The Pura tips really made cleaning their ears much easier and less stressful.
This is a neat product! Do you think the PuraTips would be small enough to fit in a Chihuahua ear? My girls rarely have ear problems, but Polly Pocket recently had an ear infection, and it was SO difficult to clean her tiny little ears.
They do fit into my cat’s ears. They are narrow at the tip, so they stop when too far for that ear. Let me see if I can get feedback from the company.
Hi Kama, the Pura-Tips are fine to use on your Chihuahua. They won’t be too big, they are narrow at the tip so you can use the tip to absorb dirt and grime from around the outside of the ear canal, you never want to stick anything into your dog’s ear canal and the Pura-Tips are designed so you can’t. The Ear Cleansing System comes with a serum that will help loosen up any dirt & grime that is deeper in the ear canal.
This looks like an amazing product! Fluffy dogs are known to have issues with their ears. We also have a long haired cat. We will have to look for this brand.
Closed flapped ears can get a bit warm and help grow yeast if a dog has too much yeast going on. 🙂
We have never heard of this line before – we will check them out (love that at the design included a pet-friendly swab kit)!
Thanks, Rebecca. Glad to introduce you to Pura Naturals Pet! It’s a great brand. Yes, those pura tips rock!
That would be handy when Ted’s ears get a little red. I’ve used a natural product with tea tree too, which is antimicrobial.
Yes, tea tree oil is great when you need antimicrobial. It can be a little harsh for some pets, a little goes a long way. 🙂
My motto is DO NO HARM to my pets. I try to avoid products that can be toxic and dangerous for my furry children. The Pura-Tips Ear Cleansing System is one I must try. I believe that Denver, my Cavalier King Charles and Joey, my Border Collie, will both appreciate the pet-friendly ear swabs. Peaches and Oliver,my cats, will likely need some encouragement to try them because they both are not fond of ” ear cleaning” procedures. Thank you for sharing this product news with us!
Chip had recurrent ear infections before changing and improving his diet; and he had prescription ear wash product, which actually seemed to make his poor ears even redder and more sore. No problems now for a few months, but this looks like a gentle, more natural product for routine ear care for both him and Noodle!
DeEtte, you are doing such a great job helping Chip overcome his anxiety and food issues. I think Pura Naturals Pet’s Pura Tips Ear Cleansing System would be a great product to have on hand if Chip has a tendency for ear infections. 🙂
Looks like a great item to checkout.
Thanks, Michelle! It’s a great one that we will continue to have in our pet medicine cabinet.
Looks like a great product I really think the swabs are a great idea. It often hard to get them to allow you to clean with a cotton ball. I also really like the ingredients there is often alcohol or some other harsh chemical that burns the sensitive ear skin when applied. This product didn’t seem to bother Dexter or Nutter one bit..
Thanks, Carol. No, no problems applying to Dexter and Nutter. It is very soothing and does not have a burning sensation at all. I also felt comfortable with the Pura tips, knowing if either pet flinched, I wouldn’t jab their ear canal!
What a great product! My dogs usually don’t sit still while ear cleaning and I am always afraid of getting the Q-tip too far in by mistake. I love that I don’t have to worry about this with Pura-Tips! I love that the Pura-Tips are reusable too 🙂 It’s great that the organic mullein oil acts as a anti-inflammatory as well for tender/sore ears. Pawsome!
Thanks, Shelley. It really is an amazing product line. Perfectly designed for pets.
Thank you, Shelley! We think you would love this product, we hope you entered the giveaway – GOOD LUCK!
We have a Neopolitan Mastiff who has had ear problems off and on for 3 years. At one point, he was suffering from 4 different infections and yeast. Hoping to try this system to see if we can get out ahead of the ear problems.
Poor baby. Check your Mastiff’s diet too. If it has been a yeast issue, try to eliminate carbs (potatoes, peas, lentils etc).
I’ve never cleaned my dog’s ears. I’ve always had the vet do it. What a great product! I love the idea of using natural products on my Schipperke. I would love to try this product. Thank you, Tonya Wilhelm, for sharing your tips. Thank you, Pura Natural Pets for creating this great product.
I do rescue work so I am ALWAYS cleaning someone’s ears, usually at least 2 a day and the longer eared dogs more than that. Cats also as they get yeast infections in their ears too.
Thanks for working with rescue! Keep up the good work.
The applicators seem a bit large. My dogs some times require that I get further in to grab hold of the loosened debris. Have you considered different diameters?
I believe the design/size is the important key to preventing ear canal damage. Unfortunately, when you go too far into a dog’s ear you can easily damage the ear canal. The liquid and rubbing is what helps loosen the debris.
We usually do Nick’s ears with cotton balls and an ear cleaner from PetSmart. It does an ok job.
This one looks great, especially the cleaning swabs.
Thanks. Yes, love that the Pura tips do not leave any cotton hairs behind. Don’t forget, check that ingredient panel on the one you are using. Unfortunately, the norm for pet grooming and OUR grooming supplies are not safe ingredients.
This looks like a great ear cleaning product! I usually use an apple cider vinegar/ water mix and cotton balls to clean my kitties ears. I really like the swabs that come with this. Those will probably be easier to use on little kitty ears than cotton balls.
Yes, the pura tips makes ear cleaning much easier and safer. Please make sure you are using purified or distilled water.
