I looked in Sangmu's ears a while ago and noticed a crap load of ear wax in there. Plus she's been scratching a lot. Like a lot, a lot. I looked again and it's also very red. Pema also has these symptoms.

We took Pemy to the vet and they said she had an ear infection and very waxy ears. Her mommy had not been cleaning them. I admit I too have cleaned Sangmu's ears like once ever and not very well. I fail as a pug groomer.

Sangmu probably has an ear infection too. I'm just so afraid to clean her ears. I just keep thinking that I'll hit her eardrum and she'll lose her hearing. Pathetic, I know. But I promise I'll start cleaning her ears. Any tips?

Diane thats good to know that no wax in the ears can be an infection as well

Thank you all very much.

Mary, thank you for suggesting the extra drops. I hadn't thought of that, but it sounds like an excellent idea. Also, the part about your flicking Bentley's ears made me laugh. It makes sense though.

And It does seem that pugs have allergy issues, doesn't it? Very unfortunate.

I wish I could blame the weather, but alas, I'm just a looser.

Lily and her sister always got eye infections, and yes wax and little pieces od loose hair. I am not affraid to clean them, I just keep and eye on the signs, and then I clean them and if they need I call the vet for some meds. Pugs do seem to have allergy issues, and most times it hits the ears. Just keep them as clean as you feel comfortable doing, and go from there. Linus got an infection a couple of weeks go, and he did not have an ounce of wax in his ears, so it can go both ways

i usually have to clean Bentleys when he is asleep I usually just use baby unscented baby wipes and just ck his ears almost everday I also try to flip Bentleys ears when he is sleeping to get air in them,als oask yr vet if u can get extra drops in case it happens again so u don`t have to waste money just for them to tell u it is a ear infection or yeast infection

Don't dig, just clean round the outside and if you must clean any deeper get a gentle cleaner from the Vet or ask them if they can recommend one.
I am finding that as we are having (for Scotland) a very warm and humid summer (it has hardly stopped raining) Hektor's ears are not doing very well. I have used an ear bud to gently clean round the top bit of the ear, like you I will not go to deep and I feel if that is needed I would prefer it if it was the Vet that did it.
So if you are having a humid summer it is probably the cause not you,
