Use after testing small skin area first or risk reaction

published

I’ve always used this product but just used on mastiff and had to take her to vets because insides of her ears went hot and red. Vet gave antihistamine shot, and ointment and a different ear cleaner for future use.

Only product that works.

published

My dog (7y.o. Cocker Spaniel) had a nasty Pseudomonas ear infection, after spending thousands on vet treatments including several different antibiotics, elimination dieting, natural therapies, all of which did work - I discovered Epi Otic, the infection was totally clear within 2 weeks & I continue to use as a mantenance cleaner. This saved my dog from expensive specialist fees & surgery which wouldve left my dog deaf. Thanks Virbac on a trully great product.

Purchased in May 2019 at My Pet Warehouse Physical store for $33.00.

Great product

published

Have used this on my Staffy cross and also my Shepherd puppy, it does a great job cleaning the ears and removing wax and debris. I also find it has quite a pleasant smell. This is the product of choice for pet professionals.

GOOD PRODUCT THAT IS BOUGHT FROM PET SUPPLIER THAT EVEN VET USES AND RECOMMENDS

published

I was informed by my vet to use on my moodle (maltese x poodle) and she has sensitive skin and she seemed to be able to handle the product good. I was told to use weekly as I shampoo her weekly but I started using weekly and now only use once and a while when I notice she is scratching her ears. I would recommend this product but I always like to speak to my vet before using any product so as they are informed what you are using on your pet.


Puppy allergic reaction!!

published

I used this product to clean my puppies ears and he had a nasty allergic reaction to it. His ears swelled and were red. He won't stop shaking his head. Overnight his lips, muzzle and cheeks swelled including around his eyes. And he began to vomit. Had to take him to the emergency vet. He is very poorly now. I would recommend doing a small skin test on this product before use. I have used it before on my other animals and had not had this reaction. I thought it was a gentle product though and never expected this reaction. It should come with a warning! I've since read lots of people saying similar things online. My dog is an Alaskan Klee Kai and has no other known allergies.

A staple in my dog cupboard

published

My vet suggested I use this on my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (they are known for ear problems) in conjunction with treatment for an ear infection. Once the infection was cleared I noticed my dog's ears got yucky very quickly with wax build up and smell. A fortnightly clean has kept his ears wax free and healthy for many years now. I always use it after his bath. I have also begun using this on my Cavoodle puppy who has an accumulation of tears underneath her eyes which smells awful. The EPI-Otic gently cleans this away.

Good product

published

I use this to clean my mini poodles ears every few weeks. It has worked really well and we haven't had any ear infections. I also dab it onto any minor scrapes or irritated skin, it's gentle and cleans the skin.

Fantastic ear cleaner

published

I use Epi otic for my grooming business and I must say it works wonders for removing all the build up in the dogs ears it also smells nice enough to tolerate.

Each dogs ears will allways come out nice and clean and have had no problems with reactions so far even on my own dogs, i won't use anything else now.

Thumbs Up

published

Although this product does have a strong smell after applying in my doggy's ears but I was told by my vet that it cleans and dries to ears. My dog did have an ear infection long while ago in using this product is cleared her ears. Now her ears are super clean and goodbye ear infection.

Dogs allergic to this product!

published

My puppy had a horrible allergic reaction to this product. His ears got swollen minutes after it was applied. He was on terrible pain, he didn't stop shaking his head. He is a little chihuahua and his ears are normally up, after the allergic reaction they came down, got red and hot. His cheeks got swollen too and run under the coach and didn't allowed me to even get near to him.
Thankfully the vet got here in 20 min and gave him a shot of steroids and within an our he got back to normal.
Be careful don't use this product.

Excellent

published

My vet recommended that I use this on my dog as he tends to get large buildups of wax in his ears, and this buildup can lead to infections and scratching, which then leads to other problems! Since using Epiotic, his ears are much cleaner and I don't have to pay someone else to do it for me!
Easy to pour nozzle, inexpensive as a little goes a long way, works to really clean out the dirt and grime

Good

At first I was hesatent to place a small amount into my dogs ear but once shown how to use this stuff it cleans well and saves a visit to the vet or groomers. You have to actually pour this down the ear canal and then try and work it out of the ear with a towel and it definatly gets all that hidden dirt in there. The nozzle on the bottle makes it easy to apply and control how much you use.
Same product as what vets use; cleans all dirt and grime out of ears; not too expensive
The smell it leaves on my dogs fur.

3 mm a week in Lop eared Rabbits is recommended by rabbit vets. Lops can get abscesses because of the downward ears. The wax cannot escape and bacteria can grow and eat into the ear drum resulting in head tilt anans+ansand deafness.

sorry, I stuffed up the last sentence. The abscess can eat into the ear drum of the bunnie and cause head tilt and deafness resulting on very expensive vet bills and sometimes euthanasia if the vet is unsure how to treat the problem

Virdac dog ear cleaner burnt my dogs ears . It is swollen ,inflamed and blistered on the outside the canal is the same what should I do ? What over the counter product and procedure eg olive oil or allavera oil?

Are you sure its blistered? The product is designed to remove the top layer of skin in the ear - my dogs ear was inflamed then the top layer of skin started peeling off, in-turn killing the infection. Whole process took about 4-5 days.

Our boxer who is 2 years old loves to swim. We are always drying her ears which she is not too fussed about. Would Epi-optic Regular ear cleanser do the same job?
