Lentil has so much ear wax! Out of all my 14 boars Ive had he is the only one who has ever had a build up!

How do you get rid of it? Some people say use Otocleans to help loosen it

Hes such a cheeky little boar and I tried to get some out last night but he wouldnt stop wiggling around so I couldnt :/

Is he your teddy / rex boy? For some reason the rex type piggies including texels etc. do seem to have much more ear wax than smooth / straight haired breeds.

Otodex will clear it, or just bathe in warm water with cotton wool.

Yeah he is Sophie, I had heard that Rexs seem to have more ear wax than other breeds.

I'll try warm water with cotton wool and if that doesnt work ill get some otodex

Cheers
