Eyes & Ears

We do not pluck ears on a regular basis. This is because it can be painful and recent research by veterinary dermatologists has determined that ear plucking can cause trauma to the inner ear skin, which is very sensitive and lead to infection. Head shaking can also result after ear plucking and this can lead to hematoma’s forming. 

We will be glad to trim the hair in and under the ear very short or pull out dead hairs. We hope you understand and appreciate that our main concern is for your pet’s comfort and safety.

We choose to follow the advice given by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and all other professional organisations involved with dog grooming and therefore we do not routinely pluck ears.

Plucking the hair inside the ear canal can cause discomfort to your dog and exasperate existing ear problems. We will clean the area surrounding the ear canal with a specially formulated cleanser and advise you to seek veterinary attention should we notice any ear problems.

Also called “Poodle Eye,” tear stains are dark blotchy areas that form on the hair under the eyes of some dogs—and they don’t have to be poodles. In fact, cats can get tear stains, too! This discoloration is particularly obvious in lighter-coloured dogs. The “stains” are caused when the eye expresses an excessive number of tears, which react with the bacteria in the hair. If tear stains are a chronic problem with your pet, it may indicate that is an underlying medical cause, such as infected tear ducts. You should bring this to the attention of your veterinarian. If routine cleaning with a moist washcloth doesn’t remove the stains, you can try solutions that are specially made for this condition. You can find them in pet-supply stores. Be sure to follow the directions.

You’ve probably noticed the globs that can form around your dog’s eyes. Using a water-moistened wash cloth or sponge, very gently wipe the area around the eye to loosen and remove this dirt. Never wipe the eye itself. And be sure to approach this area slowly so you don’t startle your dog. Moistened cotton balls can also be used to help you target the specific area around the eye where the glob has formed. Never use soap or shampoo near your dog’s eyes because this may cause irritation—or even damage your dog’s eye.

There are many times when a dog needs a quick touch-up on his face and around his eyes. Listed below are some tips to help:

Use a soft, clean washcloth or sponge

Moisten the cloth or sponge with room-temperature water (avoid extremes of temperature). Use just enough water to get the job done. If you oversaturate the cloth or sponge, your dog will feel soggy and may balk at having his face cleaned. You want your dog to feel as comfortable as possible.

Avoid using paper towels or napkins

When wet, these products can easily shred and disintegrate, which will leave small bits of paper in your dog’s coat when wiping. The idea is to make your dog cleaner than he was before you started.

Pre-moistened wipes

Some people use pre-moistened wipes because of their convenience. However, you need to make sure the ingredients in the solution does not irritate your dog. This is especially true if the wipe is made for human, not canine use. If you want to use a pre-moistened wipe, make sure you stick to products that are specifically made for dogs.

Be gentle but firm

Use only as much force as necessary to soften and dislodge bits of food or dirt in your dog’s facial fur. It’s better to make several soft strokes than one or two more forceful—and intimidating—swipes. If a clump is proving especially stubborn, use a little more water to moisten it. And if your pet is especially sensitive, try a soft cotton ball soaked in warm water.

When it is bath time, don’t simply focus on his body, make sure you cover all the ground from nose to tail including the face and eyes.

Your vet can recommend a special eye wash to keep your dog’s eye’s clean. Use the recommended eye wash and a clean, soft towel or washcloth to gently wipe the gunk out every day. Talk to your vet about what might work best for your dog.
