A note on ears
Ear infection is common in dogs that have ear hair. It is caused by dirt and moisture and is a yeast infection. A sour smell in the ear or a black gunk in the ear is a sure sign of an ear infection. They will also scratch and claw at the ear and it will become very sensitive. It is important to use either ear powder prior to a bath or put cotton balls in the ear during a bath. Keep cleaning till the Q-tip comes clean (be careful not to go to deep). I usually put about 1 cc/tsp into each ear and let sit and massage the ear for a minute or so and then clean out. You can buy Ear Wash and Momentamax at the vet's office to treat the infection.
A note on baths
When bathing try not get water into ears or up nose. If you do get water in ears, put a few drops of alcohol or mouthwash into ears. After a bath, make sure you dry puppy completely. If I need to clean the pups nose area, I will lather it up with baby shampoo and right before I put it under the faucet I will pinch its nostrils so it doesn’t breathe in. Do this only for 1-2 seconds and then let the pup take a breath and repeat. Use a puppy shampoo or baby shampoo especially around eyes, nose, and mouth. Keep the potty trail area clean and trimmed regularly. They can get dry skin in the winter just like we can from over bathing. Make sure to use a conditioner. Also, if your puppy scratches use an oatmeal and aloe vera shampoo and conditioner.
