I bought these at the same time I bought the cleaning solution, they are easy to use, and I felt more confident that I would not damage the internal ear, I will only use these on my dogs ears from now on!
I took the dog to the vet with sore ears. On examination he said that they had just waxed up and periodic cleaning would alliviate this. He suggested cotton buds (large) with a long stick so that cleaning could be effective. I tried the internet and found D for Dog and these bamboo ear cleaners. They worked really well and I have told all my friends where to buy them. I have a happy dog now thanks to your product.
Since my dog has got older he has suffered with waxy ears. I previously used cotton pads and cotton buds to clean in between the groves in his ears. I tried these bamboo ear cleaners and the results were great, it only took a fraction of the time it used to with the cotton pads and buds.
The bamboo sticks are strong, which means they dont bend like the normal cotton buds and the actual cotton on top of them is attached well so there is virtually no chance of it coming off in the dogs ear.
The fact that the cotton tip is so big means it covers a greater area of the ear, picking up more wax. This means less time cleaning them, which means minimal discomfort and annoyance for the dog, making it an overall more pleasant experience for us both!
I would recommend them and for 50 sticks in a packet, it is great value!
