From VioVet comes RestAural, a gentle everyday cleaner for the maintenance of healthy ears. Whether you have a cat or dog, it is important to monitor and maintain your pet’s ears throughout its life, especially if it is predisposed to problems. RestAural is specially formulated to gently clean, dry and balance the ear canal, reducing the chance of infection.

Containing ceruminolytic agents to remove ear wax and purulent discharge, drying agents to eliminate moisture and prevent bacterial build-up, and acidifiers to balance the ears’ natural pH, RestAural is an effective, all-round cleaner that is suitable for routine use in healthy ears.

Ceruminolytic agents – glycerine, propylene glycol, dioctyl-sodium sulfosuccinate – these chemicals work together to remove ear wax and clear the ear canal for improved hearing. They also remove purulent discharge which may result from an abrasion inside the ear.

Drying agents – SD alcohol 40, benzyl alcohol – when the ear canal is moist through bathing or swimming, it is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Drying agents disperse moisture and aid in its evaporation, leaving the ear passage dry and clear.

Acidifying agents – lactic acid, salicylic acid, benzoic acid – acidifying the ear canal changes its pH, making it an unfavourable environment for bacterial growth. In infected ears, these acids can cause irritation, so it is important to only use the cleanser in healthy ears.

Ask Your Own Question

Are these ok to use after ear infection treatment?

My yorkie is currently being treated for ear infection at vets with weekly ear drops. Once cleared would ghis be good to keep ears clear? Also what's your opinion on plucking internal ear hair my vet recommends it but my sisters vets say the hair helps keep the ear canal clean.

Regular use of RestAural is usually beneficial in dogs with this sort of problem and can sometimes help to prevent infections from building up again. It is well worth trying. As for the hair, this is slightly controversial. I believe the usual view is that the hair should be left alone in healthy ears, but ears which persistently become infected are better off without the hair. There is often an allergy (sometimes dietary) underlying the tendency to repeated ear infections, so this might be worth investigating. (Talk to your vet about a trial elimination diet. I have known some dogs to be "cured" in effect by changing their diet.)

Ferrets ears!!!

Ferrets are very prone to get dirty ears and are very likkle and hard to clean... I was wondering if RestAural ear cleaner is safe enough to use in my Business of Ferrets ears? Many thanks Ferretcrazyann!!!

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

RestAural is safe to use for on ferrets. You would still have the practical difficulty of applying it while they wriggle about. I wonder why the ears need cleaning. Do your ferrets have ear mites? There must be something which is making them dirty as many ferrets have perfectly clean ears for years with no treatment. If there are ear mites, then a specific treatment based on ivermectin could be your best bet. All your pets should be treated once a week for 3 doses. The Xeno products could be suitable, but ideally check with your vet first.

How to Apply?

My dog is particularly averse to having her ears treated in any way. How is this product applied and is there an easy way of making it acceptable to a dog that is adept at spotting what's coming and refusing to co-operate?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Some dogs can become seriously phobic about having anything added to their ears. I think that it can make things worse by trying to "sneak" something in without them realising, because they do in the end and it makes them more suspicious. If you are able to force the issue and the dog will give in, then if you are very gentle and reward the dog afterwards, then most dogs will learn to accept it and get better about it in time. If not, then you will need your vet to help and it is either done at the vets, or maybe you are given a sedative etc to help. Whatever the case, you would need some help from your vet.

As far as putting the product into the ears, it is better if it goes in at body temperature (not cold or hot). Other than that I think being open and authoritative, firm but kind, is the best way. It just has to be gently allowed to flow into the ear, then gently massaged in. Some people have to put a muzzle on their dog to treat the ears, but it can become a routine which works well and always ends happily with a reward. Most people should probably not try at all if they are not confident of "winning" and seek help from their vet. Most dogs will allow this without much fuss, but some can become so fearful that even their vet cannot do it in a conscious dog.

Sensitive Skin

25th May 2015

I have very sensitive skin.Is this the best ear cleaner for dogs with atopy?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

This product should be fine for a dog with atopy. Having said that, if the atopy is very bad then the skin can react to pretty much anything other than normal saline (dilute salt water). RestAural should be a good product for your dog and I would happily recommend it. Having dirty ears with excessive wax, discharge or any microbial overgrowth is likely to be more of a concern and this product is usually very good in those circumstances. If the ears are inflamed and sore but perfectly clean, then this might not be as good as drops containing a steroid. They would have to be prescribed by your vet.
