too thick and ineffective

I 've used this on all of my dogs, my older Aussie doesn't shake hard enough to get this extremely thick and goopy stuff out of her ears, and it does nothing for my German Shepherd who is over 1 year old, it is completely useless for very dirty ears, and because all of my dogs are outside a lot I don't even know that it works at all!
Wouldn't ever suggest it to anyone, that's not just opinion but experience from my old Aussie suffering from this thick good stuck in her ears and my Shepherd having red irritated ears because it clogs them up.
Sorry, it just didn't work for me!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

It's Horrible

I bought this because of the pretty good reviews. Well it's so thick I can't see how it does get rid of anything that's in the ear deep down. My dog has long hair and this stuff gets all over him and is impossible to wipe off. It's messy and nasty. Yuk.

No digging in your dog's ears anymore

My terrier has the worst wax build up I have ever seen in a dog's ears. I have tried many products but they are watery and cause discomfort in my dogs. Then there's digging in the ear after you just filled it with "water" and the cleanser being sent flying as they shake their head. Earoxide is a gel like product so it doesn't get flung everywhere and no wiping, digging, or cleaning inside the ear with your fingers. The stuff works like magic! The only ear cleanser I will ever buy again. Ty Tomlin for such a wonderful product.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Although it is true that this is rather gooey stuff (due to the glycerin base), the fact is that it cleared up persistent and chronic ear infections in my dog's ears that had not responded to a multitude of treatments that my vet had given my dog. Use every night as directed for 7-10 day and see what happens. It's not a big deal to take a soapy washcloth to the glycerin that makes it's way to the outer ear flaps when you consider all the debris that is transported with it and the healing that takes place deep down in the canal.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Messy Yes, Effective Yes

This product is oily and will cause a streak of matted fur on the side of your dog's head. But, this is why we have soap and water.
Earoxide works. It's the only ear medication that I've ever used that could get through the brown mess in my dog's ear. He has an ear that produces brown wax like crazy. It's a lifelong condition, and I've used very many products to combat it. Earoxide, because it's a hydrogen peroxide-infused oil, breaks up messes like regular peroxide, but it also coats the ear canal with oil so that extra wax production will not be triggered.
I do recommend this product highly. Don't fret if it's a mess. Just make sure you have some cotton balls and a wet washcloth handy.
I would recommend this to a friend!

This Tomlyn Earoxide is a thick goopy gel that sticks to the animals fur. It will make your pet angry and aggravated.
