Red face Ear hair removal?

I got a note from a friend who has a poodle and she said she uses "NAIR" to help remove some of the ingrown hair from her dog.
I would like to know if this seems safe or not.
My standard poodle has so much hair in his ears that I have to have it done about once a month or so.

I'd be worried that it would be way too harsh on their skin. I put some of that on myself once and it gave me a rash. I have sensitive skin, but then again, so do a lot of dogs. :-)

Default Thank you for that.

I will keep that in mind before I do something like this.
I was worried about that too. That is why I asked.

Nair gives me the worst hives, it's harsh stuff.

There is a powder you can put into their ears that makes the hair brittle. You can also pluck them, or have your groomer pluck them.

Default Powder? Have a name for it?

I am having a bit of trouble finding a good groomer here.
So far my dog has come back with cuts from too close shearing.
These people seem not to be able to handle a full size poodle.
Mostly I see they groom the very small dogs.
My standard poodle is quite large and very strong so maybe they can't hold him still enough.
I watched one groomer clearing excess hair from his ears and he seemed to just use resin for grip and yank the hair out.
If you could let me know the name of the powder, I will make a try at using it.
Thanks.
Leo

Thats about the only way to get the hair out of the ear. I would not use Nair, its made for humans and dogs ears are very sensitive. Its normal yo have them plucked once a month as it will always grow back.

Just any form of ear powder for dogs. I usually pick mine up at petsmart or what ever petstore Im near. It's in the shampoo/grooming supply section. This should work and its normal for Poodles to get a lot of hair by a month. Good luck!

Nair? That stuff is horrible, I can't imagine putting it in a dog's ears... !!! Unless maybe it's the bikini line/underarm stuff for sensitive areas... even then, it's not meant to be used internally and if it got inside the dog's head that could be really bad...

I have a pair of pluckers like the vet has, Bauer hates when I pluck his ears but I shave them down first with the mini clippers and then it only takes a few minutes.

When we are sitting down watching the TV, I lie each dog on my knee and just casually pluck a few hairs at a time. So long as you don't keep at it until they are sore, they seem to accept this. If you do it each day, there shouldn't be a bad build up.
