CleanEar solution is a gentle, effective ear cleanser for use in dogs and cats.
CleanEar contains malic acid 2,25%, benzoic acid 0,15%, salicylic acid 0,0375%, docusate sodium 2% in a propylene glycol base. The organic acids gently lower the pH of the ear canal.
The low pH produced by these acids causes a slight swelling of the ear tissues. Because necrotic tissue swells at a faster rate than healthy tissue, it separates quite easily from healthy tissue. The
dead tissue sloughs off and the healthy underlying tissue remains undamaged, providing a good environment for healing. The low pH also discourages bacterial, yeast and fungal growth.
CleanEar also contains docusate sodium and propylene glycol. These two substances allow the solution to:
- remain in contact with ear tissue for longer;
- act as a solvent for excess grease and cerumen;
- dry out the ear canal;
- exert a mild antibacterial and antifungal action; and
- ease the removal of dead tissue, scales and other debris.
- For the of crusts, excess wax, exudate and other debris from canine and feline ears.
- To remove excess purulent discharge in cases of otitis externa, allowing better penetration of antibacterial ingredients.
- Removal of ear debris following ear-mite infestations to allow better penetration of miticides.
- Can be used in the ears of dogs that like to swim.
- Preparation of the ear for other therapy.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Instil 5-10 drops twice daily in the affected ear. Massage ears gently to assist break-up of debris.
Use a cotton bud to remove debris.
