How much is too much? We had a vet appointment today, and the vet was a little concerned by how much ear hair Captain has in his canal. I clean his ears out every few days or so, and get the wax out, but if the vet is concerned, should I talk to the groomer about taking more out next time? Can it be trimmed rather than pulled? He seems to have very sensitive skin, so I don't want to irritate it. The hair doesn't seem to be causing him any problems, since I keep his ears clean otherwise. She said he doesn't have any infections, but the hair could cause one. But, what I've found about taking the hair out, is it could cause infections too. Thoughts?
