Product Review: Burt’s Bees for Dogs Ear Cleaner
Nearly every dog requires regular ear maintenance, particularly pets with long or floppy ears. However, many ear cleaning solutions are not gentle enough for regular use, or leave behind repugnant odors. Here, Burt’s Bees for Dogs Ear Cleaner will be reviewed.
Burt’s Bees for Dogs Ear Cleaner is a gentle ear cleansing solution made with peppermint oil and witch hazel. The peppermint oil is designed to soothe a dog’s itchy or inflamed ears, while the witch hazel cleanses the ear canal while reducing excess moisture. Unlike other ear wash solutions, only 1 – 2 drops of this cleanser is required, reducing discomfort for your pet. Also unlike other products, Burt’s Bees for Dogs Ear Cleaner has a pleasant smell.
There are many advantages to this product. Perhaps most importantly, Burt’s Bees is a trusted brand for all-natural products. High-quality, ethically sourced ingredients comprise this product, which has never been unfairly tested on animals. For regular ear cleaning maintenance, this product is particularly useful, and even enjoyable to use.
There are a number of features that make this product stand out from the rest. For instance, a short dispensing nozzle prevents pet owners from accidentally placing the ear cleansing bottle too deep into a dog’s ear canal, causing damage. Additionally, the bottle only dispenses the solution in a drop-wise manner, eliminating the possibility that you accidentally over fill your dog’s ear with solution, causing discomfort. Finally, unlike other other ear cleansers, the Burt’s Bees for Dogs Ear Cleaner bottle does not make the same “gurgle” sound as other ear cleansers, which can be loud and uncomfortable for pets. Impressively, this product has 4.5 stars on Amazon, out of 102 customer reviews.
However, Burt’s Bees Ear Cleaning Solution should not be used in place of medicated ear wash prescribed by a veterinarian. While this product contains ingredients that have natural anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties, it should not be used to treat an ear infection, unless prescribed by your veterinarian.
This product is great for pet owners who prefer all-natural pet care products from trusted brands. Burt’s Bees Ear Cleaning Solution is gentle enough for frequent use, and is recommended after a bath or swim, as well as for general ear maintenance.
However, this product is not recommended for dogs that require medicated ear wash solutions or have special pH concerns. In these instances, pet owners should consult their veterinarians.
Similar ear cleaning products include Zymox Ear Cleanser with Bio-Active Enzymes, Natural Dog Ear Cleaner, and Doggie Pit Stop Ear Cleaner. Like Burt’s Bees for Dogs Ear Cleaner, these products are all highly rated.
Ultimately, Burt’s Bees for Dogs Ear Cleaner is a great product for routine ear maintenance that smells great, contains natural ingredients, and is gentle on a dog’s sensitive ears. There are many advantages to the use of this product – including a reduced chance of ear injury – but it should not be used on dogs with existing ear infections.
