Ear Cleaners – The Reviews

Often I have seen online people asking for ear cleaner recommendations. We are ¬†all spoilt for choice as there are many brands out there. I believe somewhere out there, one of it would be our personal preference. What I prefer might not be yours. Try the different ones and you’ll definitely find one that you like and suits your pet.

This entry is only base on my experience and personal preference.

Pet Horizon Earrific

Price: SGD16.20 to SGD19.05
My Ratings: 4/5

I personally love this, but the smell can be pungent and not all can take it. It smells like medicated ear solution.

Although it is like a normal ear cleaner. It cleans up the dirtiest ears easily. It also help ear infections to recover faster. This is my #1 favorite.

Chris Christensen Mystic Ear

Personally I didn’t really like this. Poured a little into the ear to dissolve the ear wax, bubbles start to form. I have no idea how much solution have I poured into the ear canal or that mostly were just air bubbles.

However, cleaning wise there’s nothing to complain. It works on dirtiest ear so all is well.

Tropiclean Oxymed Ear Cleaner

This is considered a medicated ear cleaner. It helped with my dogs ear infection. It isn’t smelly and cleans dirty ears with ease. Just a little and a gentle swap on the ear canal, the dirt is off. Another personal favorite.

Tropiclean Ear Wash

For dogs who are allergic to alcohol, you should try this. Tropiclean Ear Wash is alcohol free!

This ear solution smells like coconut to me. Cleaning wise it works just fine. Helps control my Shih tzu’s yeast infection in the ear at bay which I am thankful for. He’s on the road to recovery. A slow process but he’s getting better.

Cleaning wise, it’s good. I have no complain for it all.

Bark to Basics Ear Cleaner

Smell wise, awesome. It contains witchhazel which I read up it’s good. However, the cleaning doesn’t seem to be good to me. For a dirty ear, I had to clean the same area multiple times before the dirt comes off. Which might cause redness to the skin. This is base on my personal experience, thus it may not apply to all user.

#1 All System Ear so Fresh

Price: SGD31.50 to SGD37.45
My Ratings: 3.5/5

Personally this is another good brand for dirty ears. But of course, it works good on non dirty ears too. I have only used it a couple of times and I noticed how fast it dissolve the ear wax for easy cleaning. Something to consider getting if you’re looking for a good ear cleaner. This is one of the ear cleaner I would recommend.

True Iconic Tea Tree Ear Cleaner

This ear cleaner comes in gel form. Not my personal favorite. When squeezed a little into the ear canal to dissolve ear wax, the gel doesn’t really slide but stayed on top like cake frosting. To allow it to enter the ear canal fully, it have to take some time. When I squeezed a little of it onto cotton, somehow it slides better and it will land on the ground. Which kind if waste a little of the ear cleaner.

Cleaning wise is good. It cleans up dirty ear wax better than I expected. Smell is kind of pleasant.

Espree Ear Care

Recently I bought this to try. Thinking if switching ear cleaner for my grooming business. This ear cleaner isn’t safe for cats, so please do not use it on cats!

Majority of my clients keep dogs so it is ok for me to use. But of course I have Tropiclean Ear Wash on hand for cat clients.

Tear Stain Products – The Reviews

Tear stains can be a major problems to owners especially when they have white dogs/cats. There are many reasons to why your pets may have tear stain, but I won’t go into that for this post.

For this blog entry, I will be introducing and leaving my opinions on the tear stain products that I have tried on my white poodle.

Artero Pretty Eyes (Eye Care Lotion)

  • My ratings: 3.5/5

A friend gave me a little of this solution to try on my white poodle. It did helped remove a little stain and improves my poodle’s tear stain condition. The ingredients were natural extract thus I am willing to give it a try. Thankfully, my poodle didn’t develop any allergic reaction to it. But for a bottle this size, I find it quite reasonable in terms of pricing, but not suitable for owners with a budget.

Tropiclean Facial Cleanser (Tear Stain Remover)

  • Price: SGD$16.40 to SGD$19.50
  • My ratings: 4.5/5

This product is more troublesome to be use. It’s a facial cleanser formula, thus you need to rinse off after leaving it on for about 3 minutes. To prove that this work, I diluted it in a spray bottle. Mix it well before spraying the solution on a facial cotton where I used it to wipe my poodle’s tear stain. Amazingly, the dirt and stain did came off which lightens my poodle’s tear stains after rinsing off the remaining solution that’s on her face.

It’s mild and the ingredients were natural. You may even use it daily to lighten off the stains and maintain cleanliness on your pet’s face. It can be use for muzzle stain too.

Eyerific

  • Price: SGD$15.50 to SGD$17.50

Previously I bought this as it was stated good for tear stain. However, it didn’t really help much despite regular cleaning. But it’s good as normal eye cleaner which help removes dirt around my pets’ eyes. Thus I would recommend it as a normal eye cleaner for owners with breeds like shih tzu, pugs etc. who requires regular eye cleaning.

So far I have only tried these 3 products. I believe there are more that I have yet to try, but most of it I’m reluctant to try due to the ingredients. I am avoiding products that contains antibiotics as long term usage may cause health issues or side effects. While I am still researching for better products on tear stain, if you do have any you would like to recommend me and fellow readers, feel free to leave a comment on this entry.
