This product was reccomended as the family dog has ultra sensitive ears. We clean her ears once a week with this solution to help prevent infections, as they come too often.
The scent is awful, but it works. Oticalm is easily dispensed onto cotton balls, and into the ear if you so desire. Once the product is applied into the ear, you are supposed to rub the solution around inside the ear from the outside to ensure that the solution is effective. It is at this time that you are minorly exposed to the scent, which is nauseating when it is applied to the ear but pleasant in the bottle, very strange experience.
The solution is alcohol free and safe to use for dogs and cats and for less than twenty dollars you get a bottle of 12 ounces that should last quite a while. It works very well, once it is applied to the ear it seems to adhere to the dirt, and grime and pull it out with the cotton swabs that you are using. I am very satisfied with the product and will continue to use it on the dog.
