Beagles have a pair of big droopy ears that block direct sunlight and airflow. This creates a moist environment inside their ears, which increases the chances of infections due to bacteria and fungus. That’s why it is essential to clean your beagle’s regularly with an ear cleaner liquid. To make your search easy, I called up my veterinarian and asked for her advice for best ear cleaners for beagles. These are her top 5 recommendations:
1. Virbac Epi-Otic Advanced Ear Cleanser
This is an ideal ear cleaner for routine cleaning of your beagle’s ears. It helps to remove excess wax and debris from the ear canal. Its neutral pH formula helps to remove the odor of their ears.
I use this exact product for both of my beagles and never had any ear infections. It’s even safe to use for dogs with sensitive ears. Moreover, it can be used for puppies and adult dogs.
- Recommended for beagles with chronic otitis externa

2. Pet MD Dog Ear Wipes
My vet suggests using dog ear wipes more often than using an ear cleaning solution. While ear cleaning solutions can be more effective, these wipes can be used to clean your beagle’s ears in between.

Here are some other common health problems beagles are prone to.
As the saying goes, ‘prevention is better than cure.’ You can prevent the majority of ear problems by keeping them clean. And that’s why you need ear cleaners.

As I said before, I apply ear cleaning liquid once a month on both of my beagles and clean their ears every alternate day with ear wipes. However, your beagle may develop more wax, which increases the chances of ear infection. In such a case, you can clean his ears every day with ear wipes. But please consult your veterinarian for better advice.
