CleanAural Cat Ear Cleaner
Advantages: Cleans quickly
Disadvantages: Price perhaps is a problem
After taking a trip to the vet for my cat a while ago it was brought to my attention about a product which could clean his ears.
He was missing for a few weeks and beforehand he was a gorgeous and well groomed cat but he came back thin and unhealthy and his ear were full of black marks and mites. At first I thought being the big head that I am that I could solve his ear problems.
We eventually went to the vet and that had the Clean Aural container on the side and it was priced at £8.24 for a 50ml bottle and they said it would help ease his ears.
I thought it might be a risk spending so much on a product I never seen or heard off before but again I was proved wrong by the vet which is always a nice thing to happen.
I opened up the grey bottle and inside was a long nose point which had a screw on cap at the top to stop the liquid leaking out. You then tilt the bottle into the ear of the cat and the long pointed part is meant to go inside and you squeeze quite hard to get some of the liquid out.
I was then told after a small amount comes out to rub the ear in a massage fashion and it would help the liquid go further down the ear and help clean the ear but also help bring any mites to the surface so you can easily clean them away.
I noticed there was a smell and his ear was quite wet and damp looking so I had to be careful how much I put in which was difficult because he had dark fur in his ears as well so it was a challenge to try and see how much liquid I put inside.
The long pointed part of the bottle which is inserted into the ear has a wide opening so there can be quite a bit of liquid which goes into the cats ears which is the main purpose. After a few days I went to check again and all the mites had come to the surface and some cotton wool helped me remove it completely.
I found a few days after I put some more in no more black marks or mites appeared in the ear so I knew the product had worked quite well.
I found shortly after he had a small amount of wax or mites bites up again and he was slightly deaf and I used this and within 10 minutes he was shaking his head and you could see bits fly out it sounds disgusting and it was but the beauty was it worked again.
I think the biggest problem with this for me is the ability to know much to put down the ear. I sometimes put a very small amount with no results and then put perhaps a bit too much in and the ear ends up soaking wet and people stare at my cat thinking he is seriously ill.
I think the product price is good because I have had the same bottle for ages and for £8.24 it was cheap for me considering a visit to the local vet is £30 just to see them it is a huge saving.
Cleaning was easy as well sometimes you might have some of the black stuff arrive in the bottle nose where you squirt the liquid I usually get a cotton bud and put warm water there and use it to clean the top. This is an easy item to store away and one of the better ones I have seen.
Summary: A very good cleaning product
