What is Ear Clean Gold?
Ear Clean Gold is an infused herbal oil formulated for cleaning cats' and dogs' ears comfortably and naturally. The base oil of this formula is medium chain triglyceride oil, known for its ability to keep skin tissue healthy and provide nutrition to the layers of the skin. Furthermore, this oil helps to maintain the natural immunity of the skin, assisting the skin's barrier capability often needed by canines prone to ear problems. Use Ear Clean Gold for regular maintenance or as needed.
What is Ear Clean Gold used for?
It is common for many dogs to experience discomfort in the ears and some canine breeds are certainly more prone to this. Ear scratching, head shaking, redness and swelling are all indications that your dog's ears are uncomfortable and require attention. Dogs with floppy or hairy ears are more likely to require regular ear cleaning, as are dogs that swim.
Ear mites in dogs are most commonly passed on during contact with cats, while indoors or outdoors. The ears will be uncomfortable and you will notice your dog trying to relieve the itchiness. There may be redness and inflammation. You will also see a brown/black substance which may look waxy or like coffee grounds. The ears may have a bad odor.
Use Ear Clean Gold prior to administering medicated preparations into the ear. Once the ear canal is free from debris and discharge, the tissues will be able to absorb more of the medication, making it more effective.
Most felines do not require regular ear cleaning and are not generally prone to ear discomfort in the way many dogs are. If you notice your cat repeatedly scratching the ears, have a look inside. There may be ear mites present.
Ear mites are a fairly common parasite found in the ears of cats. There will be a brown/black substance that looks waxy or like coffee grounds, apparent in the folds inside the ears. You may notice your cat shaking his or her head or scratching in an attempt to relieve the itchiness caused by the ear mites.
A note from our Veterinarian...
Ear Clean Gold was designed to gently clean pet's ears. The natural ingredients in this product support healthy skin and help maintain a clean, problem-free environment inside the ears. If there is evidence of chronic infections or discomfort in the ears, it is important to seek a consultation with your veterinarian. Recurrent canine ear problems may be a sign of underlying allergies, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease, diabetes or other causes.
When cleaning the ears of your dog, be sure to never probe inside the ears with a Q-Tip or simular long instrument. This can lodge debris and discharge further into the ear canal or even rupture the eardrum. Be sure to follow the Directions for Use for the safety and comfort of your dog or cat.
What are ear mites?
Mites spend most of their life living inside your dog's or cat's ear. Because outward signs are not always apparent, it is important to have your vet check your pet's ears at each regular check up. If untreated, canine ear mites can cause an ear infection through the abrasions created by the mites and from scratching. Ear mites are irritating and many dogs will scratch, causing reinfestation through the paws. Continued scratching can lead to bald patches where hair is torn out and even bleeding. At worst, the infection can spread to the brain, where it can cause very serious symptoms.
Common Symptoms of Dog Ear Mites

How soon will I see results?
Every pet is different so results will vary depending on how advanced the infestation is, but you should see improvements anywhere from two days to a few weeks.
Are there any side effects?
Not for internal use.
Do not insert cotton swabs (such as Q-Tips) into the ear canal. Use at room temperature or body temperature for the comfort and safety of the animal.
