Ear Plucking

Ear plucking is a controversial subject in the grooming world. Some breeds, such as Poodles and Schnauzers, grow hair in their ear canal, and for a long time it was normal for groomers to pull this hair from the canal, believing that it was blocking air from circulating the ears.

What has been determined in recent years is that ripping this hair out can cause microscopic tears in the ear canal. If bacteria are present it's possible for it to cause an infection in an injured ear. For these reasons ear plucking has now been classified as a veterinary procedure as it's invasive.

Plucking this hair out of the ear canal HURTS the dog. Most will fight, wriggle and try to get the person pulling the hair to stop, some will scream and try to bite. As the pet owner you don't want your groomer to inflict pain on your dog, just as much as we do not want to cause your dog any discomfort or pain. We want your dog to be happy to go to their groomer.

If you or your veterinarian really wants your dog's ears plucked, we recommend that you ask your veterinarian to pluck the ears. It is a delicate procedure that should only be done by an experienced veterinarian.

At Grooming Marvellous, we will trim the hair in the ear rather than pull it out. We are pet stylists, we focus on skin and coat, anything pertaining to the inside of the dog is to be addressed by a vet.
