7. If there is heavy dirt on the ear, pull the ear out of the head gently to open the ear canal, and then inject a few drops of cleaning fluid or mineral oil. Massage the ear root, press the ear for one minute to make the detergent run down the ear canal, then release the dog to shake his head several times, so as to loosen the earwax, check the ear again, and then clean the earwax with a cotton ball or cotton stick soaked with ear washing water or mineral oil.
