News and Information about Dogs, Cats, and Pet Products


As a pet parent who has struggled with chronic ear infections in both dogs and cats, I’m “all ears” when it comes to learning about proven solutions. It’s a myth that only floppy-eared pets get ear infections – chronic ear conditions can strike almost any pet. That’s why I’d like to talk a bit about Zymox ear care products. They not only bring relief to pets, but to their owners as well!

Nobody likes the time-consuming expense of multiple vet visits, and nobody likes to hear their sweet pet whimper or yelp in discomfort. Just like its special shampoo, Zymox ear products use a safe, unique triple-enzyme formula (called “LP3 Enzymes” because they consist of Lacoperoxidase, Lactoferrin and Lysozyme) for long-term maintenance and prevention of chronic ear problems.

Enzymes are naturally occurring proteins that increase the rate of chemical reactions. They won’t irritate sensitive, inflamed tissues; they’re non-toxic for pets and people; and most importantly, bacteria won’t develop resistance against enzymes, as can sometimes happen with antibiotics. Zymox “LP3” enzymes are a very specific blend that work in combination to weaken, split, and destroy bacterial, fungal, and even certain viral infections. The enzymes only react with invading single-celled organisms, leaving healthy cells unaffected.

When it comes to pet ear care, there are two Zymox ear solutions I love. Enzymatic Ear Solution is great for pets with chronic or ongoing ear issues. It’s a once-a-day formula that requires NO ear cleaning, either before or during use. In fact, because the special enzymes work with the body’s own defenses, swabbing and rubbing the area is actually discouraged. This allows the enzymes to naturally react with inflamed areas, debris, and microorganisms. Enzymatic Ear Solution can help clean and relieve discomfort with a single daily dose. It contains a 0.5% hydrocortisone to help reduce redness and calm inflammation — and because it contains no antibiotics, it’s especially good for antibiotic-sensitive pets and extra-squirmy pets who struggle with ear cleaning (you guys know who you are).

If your pet simply has dirty, waxy ears (either naturally or from extended outdoor play), Zymox Ear Cleanser is another great option. It doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals that might irritate or sting sensitive ears. The special triple-enzyme formula combines with gentle cleansers to help break down dirt and debris naturally, quickly, and conveniently. This keeps the outer ear area fresh-smelling, clean, and clear.

If you’d like to learn more about the super-effective Zymox line of ear care products made especially for pets, stop by any Two Bostons store and ask a Team Member to tell you more! In an upcoming blog, we’ll share a super-simple routine for manually cleaning your pet’s ears on a regular basis. This is another great way to notice and head off problems before they even begin.
