Why Do French Bulldog Ears Need Regular Cleaning?

With larger than normal bat-shaped ears, French bulldogs are at greater risk for suffering from allergies, dust, debris and other common ear issues. The dogs have difficulty removing these pathogens from their own ears, so they need human help to stay healthy.

What You Need 

Make sure that you have these vital materials before cleaning your French bulldog’s ears.

  • Veterinarian-approved ear rinse (we can also make recommendations)
  • Cotton balls and cotton swabs
  • Safety tweezers
  • Paper towels
  • Dog ear wipes
  • Your French bulldog’s favorite treats

If you have questions about any of these materials, please do not hesitate to ask.

What Steps You Should Take

Take the following easy steps to cleanse your French bulldog’s ears. He or she will be thrilled with ears that feel less moist, itchy or even sore.

Soak Cotton Ball in Ear Rinse

First, soak the cotton ball or balls in ear rinse. Gently dab the outside of the ear to remove any exterior grime or debris. Use the tweezers carefully to remove any foreign objects in the exterior area.

Swab the Outer Ear Canal

Next, dip cotton swabs into the ear rinse. Carefully insert swabs in the outer ear canal. Only swab what you can see. Do not push the swab too far in the canal or you will risk pain and even ear damage.

Take care to hold your pet in place at this point. Sudden movements could cause injury.

Squirt Ear Rinse for Deeper Cleaning

To clean out the deepest recesses of the ear safely, squirt a generous amount of rinse into the ear. Your dog’s natural reaction, shaking his head to get the liquid out, will ensure that the rinse cleans the inner ear.

Dry the Ear

Gently dry the ear with a clean towel. Try to soak up as much excess rinse as possible.

Give Your Dog a Treat For Behaving and Positive Reinforcement

Once all of the unpleasantness is done, reward your pet with his favorite treat. This does more than simply give your French bulldog something fun and tasty to eat. Combining positive treats of any sort with unpleasant, but necessary, activities will help your pet to feel better about them. Doing so will reinforce proper behavior during the treatment as well.
