I have been dog grooming for over ten years and I have always used some kind of ear cleansing solution. This professional Vet Solutions Ear cleansing solution has been very dependable and you will not realize how valuable it is until you do not submerged your animals ears in this solution and keep them clean really quick. No solution does well when you wait too long that it happens that your pets ears are really dirty. So, when that happened, you have to decided to purchase some new ear cleansing solution that will save you a trip to the vets.  This bottle will deodorize and clean gently, and dry and acidify your pets ear canal quickly. I purchased the large 8 ounce bottle of this solution, and I only spent $9.99 and I have gotten several months of use out of this so far. This bottle is usually only sold to vets, you can also find this in any grooming magazine such as Pet Edge.

Description
The bottle is an 8 ounce bottle, but there is other sizes that you can find this in. This is designed to be used several times a day use, and can be used for either dogs or cats. You can use this continually for an several months straight without worrying about any kind of excess to add to any infection, this does so because of the high strength and sanitary chemicals that this is made out of. This has a twist top that will help you squirt the solution into the ears, without doing any damage to the inner ear. This bottle of this  solution is a clear liquid, so that it will not stain the animal hair to a different color. Your pet will allow you to squirt this in the ears without hurting or making them fatigued. None of the liquid is dangerous to your pets. This also has a break resistant bottle because it is made of a durable plastic you can drop this or have the animal that you are working on knock it off of the table and it will not break. This liquid inside of this bottle only has a slight odor, not enough to bother you or your pet. This is for topical use only (for outside of the body not inside of mouth or eyes).

Ingredients
You will find  deionized water, propylene glycol, aloe vera gel, SD alcohol 40-2,lactic acid, glycerin, dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate, salicylic acid, fragrance, benzoic acid, benzyl alcohol.

Experience
Some people may be afraid to use these and poke their pets too far into the ear, but if you are careful you should have no problem. The problem lies with the animal and how cooperative they are.  You will have to hold their head securely, by holding onto the head area or holding the head firmly. If you are afraid of the animal they will notice and they will fight you. So, you need to be quick about doing this job. The smaller animals with small ears will be the hardest, but the large animals with large ears will be a lot easier.  You do not want to put this tip of the bottle too far into the ear canal, because you will hear a yipe out of your pet, letting you know that you are getting too close.  Plus, you will have the makings of something start that you do not want to start if you are only trying to clean their ears. To be safe you can just squirt the liquid into the ear canal of the smaller pets and if you have a large animal then you can take advantage of their size and overall temperament.

When I first got this home, I thought that this would be a little bit of a problem, but my pets got used to this in a hurry. It will take you some time for you to get used to the way that they act and not have to  be on guard. This is a real nice way to keep your pets happy and feeling healthy. The plastic bottle is made to allow you to align in the ear perfectly, there is no miss matching when this bottle comes in contact with the ears. The fact that you do not have to worry about the tip being too long is quite nice. All of my other cleaning solutions bottles fit into my hand with ease and this is very easy to squeeze into the ear. When you have the type of bottle that has a twist top and it slides up and open to keep any contaminants out of the sanitary solution. The end of the bottle that this has, will be add insurance if you can get used to using it or pushing it too far into the ear. 

This type of cleaners are very durable and if you have ever done any grooming before you also know that there are animals that do not like to have their ears done. You will, from time to time, get an animal that likes to kick things off of the grooming table.  I have dropped this, and had it knocked to the floor by my dogs and all it did was bounce a little. I really worried more about breaking the tip of the bottle off, but since this is a very pliable, the bottle bends and squeezes with ease.

I have used this product to clean all types of dogs from a Miniature Schnauzer, German Shepherd, Chow, Newfoundland, and Cocker Spaniels etc. This is excellent for all of the types of breeds that you may come across. Once you squirt this cleaner out, you can let it overflow out of the ear canal and you do not have to worry about it doing any damage to the rest of the animal. After you squirt this into the ear, you will need to massage the ear to work the liquid into the deepest part of the ear. Make sure that you first use a q-tip to clean the dirt out of the part of the ear that you can see then squirt this into the ears. As long as you lift up the ears quickly and give them a quick squirt the dogs and cats will only twitch a little.

Conclusion
I have been using this solution for just several years and I would not go back to any off brand name of solution if I was forced to. If you can afford one of this cleaning solution, I would highly recommend getting this. But, if you only groom once in a while then it may not be worth the money to invest in this large of a bottle, but I wouldn't think twice about not spending the money on a large bottle of this . You have to take care of your pets and keep their ears wiped down so that they do not become infected. As long as you keep your pets ears on a regular basis, they will stay clean for you for quite some time. I have also enjoyed the fact that all I have to do is grab the bottle out of the bag and no more fumbling looking around. This bottle is white in color and kind of stand out from all of the other bottles.
