What do VET BASICS® General EAR CLEANSER ingredients do:
- Propylene Glycol is a surfactant that will help dissolve the exudates, dirt, and wax that may accumulate in the pet's ear canal.

- Lactic Acid develops naturally in the body, generally in conjunction with exercise. It can be quite instrumental in avoiding hypoglycemia, a condition that causes a feeling of weakness and fatigue and serves as an important energy source. It is used to help create an environment that will minimize the growth of infectious bacteria.
- Glycerin helps dehydrate moisture to remove excess moisture from the ear canal, which makes it very helpful for swimmer's ear. It also has antiseptic properties.
- Salicylic Acid is often used to treat skin conditions. It softens the skin, taking off dead skin, and opening pores. It is also useful for the management of inflammation.
- Dioctyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate (DSS) is widely used in conjunction with irrigation, so it is useful for helping to break down wax in the ear canal.
- Benzoic Acid inhibits the growth of bacteria and is used to manage fungal skin diseases such as ringworm.
What do VET BASICS® Medicated EAR FLUSH ingredients do:
- Ketoconazole is an antifungal medication that works by interfering with the cell wall of fungi. It can slow or stop fungal growth in addition to actively killing off fungi and is effective against multiple yeasts and fungi. It can also be used effectively in the treatment of ringworm.
- Tromethamine (TRIS) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
- Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is used to remove debris from the ear canal as well as lubricating the canal.
