Our old cat had a terrible problem with built up ear wax. We tried a couple liquid ear cleansers, but we always felt bad squirting the cold liquid into his ears. It frightened him. When I read online that Otifoam ear cleanser has FOAMING ACTION, I thought this might be the answer for us.
Since I purchased this online, I had no idea what it would be like. I suppose I was expecting something that was the consistency of shaving cream. I imagined applying this foam into my cats ears and perhaps he wouldn't have that shock of cold liquid. I thought maybe it wouldn't leak out, get all over the place when he shook his head, and cleanse the ear as the foam stayed inside it.
Well, in my opinion, this product does not live up to its foaming action claim. It is clear, cold, liquid, like all the other ear cleansers we have tried. The bottle/squirter makes for a clumsy way to apply this liquid. Perhaps a pump spray might be better?
You are supposed to squirt Otifoam into your animal's ears, massage base, and wait a few minutes for foaming action. Granted, it will clean your pet's ears, like all the other ear cleansers, but foaming action? I failed to see it. What I also did not know when purchasing this cleanser, was that they also want you to buy their OtiRinse to flush excess wax out of the ear canal. I do not want two products for one job.
For us, there is no point in purchasing this product over any other ear cleansing product. Thanks!
