but I'm not sure ferrets can suffer from that. I can't help
feeling that something isn't right though if the ears actually
smell. Maybe your vet would be able to do a culture.

always stink. I generally clean the every two to three

and Green ear cleaner and about 8 to 10 Qtips each cleaning.
His ears are usually very, very dirty. He has been treated
for mites and has had three ear infections over the last two
