These cleaning agents and are usually put into the ear before bathing. It is crucial for the groomer to keep dogs’ ears dry. If water runs into a dog’s ear during a bath, a drying agent containing isopropyl alcohol, acetic acid, or boric acid is put into the ear.

Professional dog groomers recommend using a wash rag instead of Q-tips to help dry the ears. Using Q tips increase the chance of injuring the eardrum. If the cleaning requires places out of a wash rags reach you should seek professional help.

Dog groomers usually apply an ointment to a dogs’ eyes before bathing to protect the cornea. However, the trend is moving away from these types of practices because some professionals believe the ointment may trap irritants that run into the eyes during the bath.

Adequate grooming is necessary to maintain your dog’s health. If it’s something you want to do personally, you should try to educate yourself on the finer points, but using professional dog groomers will be beneficial to you in the long run.
