    Today I noticed some gunky stuff around my Lamanchas ears it was kind of waxy but it did not stink.
    What should I clean her ears out with? Is there a good way to do this?
    Thank You.

    we use syringes with needle removed, and hydrogen peroxide. also mite drops like for dogs seem to help in making sure that ears stay healthy.

    My girls get that from time to time, I just take a baby wipe and get it out then on a clean baby wipe I put some neosporin on and then wipe the ear out again lightly. My cat gets Ear mite junk that is dark red looking stinky stuff but I have never had it in my goats ear,... it's just crusty squishy stuff .

    Peroxide and clean wash cloth in a bowl. Feet trimming once a month and I saturate the wash cloth with Peroxide, and saturate the ear and massage with it getting some of it down the ear canal. Miticide works great afterward as drop for the ears. Vicki
