Cleaning Your Maltese's Ears
Why this should be done:
Canine ears naturally hold ear wax, and this is vital for trapping small particle debris. However, after a certain amount of time, there can be either a buildup of wax, or wax may be holding onto so much fine debris that it needs to be cleaned out.
In addition, if any moisture enters the ears, it can and often stays there.
Once this happens, ear infections are much more likely to develop. But, if the ears are cleaned on a regular basis, this can help prevent those infections from occurring.
