Dogs With Long Ears – The Adorably Floppy Pets Your Family Will Love
Long ears are one of the most adorable traits that can be found among dogs. They make them look so cute! However, they do have some drawbacks. For example, their short life span makes it difficult for these fluffy animals to live out their natural lifespan.
Their soft fur does not provide enough insulation from cold weather conditions. And their flat faces make them prone to getting skin diseases such as psoriasis and eczema. These are just a few reasons why these fluffy pets need extra care.
So what’s the solution?
Well, there are several solutions that can be used to keep your dog or cat healthy and happy. One of those ways is grooming them regularly with special products designed especially for dogs and cats with floppy ears. Here are some tips:
1. Shampoo and Condition Your Dog’s Hair Every Day
If you want your dog to stay clean, then shampooing and conditioner will definitely help you. You can use a product that contains ingredients like baking soda, coconut oil, aloe vera gel or even apple cider vinegar. These types of shampoos work well because they contain all the necessary ingredients needed to keep your pet’s hair healthy and shiny.
2. Use a Waterless Spray to Clean Your Dog’s Ears
Most breeds with long ears have ear canals that are wider than other types of dogs. This means that they get dirtier faster. One way to keep them clean is to use a special type of spray that can be used on both dry and wet hair. These sprays help get rid of wax and dirt build up in the ear canals.
