Love the convenience and effectiveness BEST product for ear cleaning! So why did I buy this product? Well, as a dog groomer I used these when cleaning all the clients dogs ears and once I had my dear Poppy & Koda, siblings from the same kit that both have leg deformities (Poppy's more extreme with two deformed splayed legs), it became quite clear after a vet visit that she was struggling to clean her ears. Poor Poppy needed help as her little front arms couldn't do much and her back legs just completely missed! Poppy is a rabbit, I'll just make that clear, they don't like liquids on them but as I've handled her since birth and with her disability been bathing her since she was little she's become quite accustom to letting me just get on with it & stamping her feet later. Originally I was using cotton buds, Q-tips, but I was using so many, getting the dirt/wax over my hands and generally still leaving quite a lot in them. After trialling a packet from here they have worked a treat! Poppy & Koda now no longer go on the attack because they can hear me coming. Their ears are much cleaner and have gone from a sore red irritated ear canal to a healthy pink soothed fully functioning ear. I'm so pleased and due to the good job they do I don't have to use as many, nowhere near as many as the q-tips, and less frequently which is a great relief to Poppy & Koda. On a side note it would be nice to have larger packets available and I mean that as in number of bamboo sticks not size so that I could order them for commercial use too.
