It might take some practice if you’ve never cleaned your cat’s ears before, but luckily the process is pretty straightforward. Complete the following steps with cleaning solution and gauze close at hand:

  1. Start with pulling back the earflap gently and fill one ear canal with a cleaning solution recommended by your veterinarian.
  2. Massage the ear base for five to ten seconds, and then let your cat shake the solution out.
  3. Wrap gauze around your finger to clean excess liquid out of the ear canal; and don’t worry, your finger can’t go in far enough to cause damage, according to Cottrell.
  4. Repeat with the other ear.
