Smile Cocker Spaniel Ears - Answered by Dr. Van Lienden

I have had my spaniel, Keesha, for 7 years now, and have been using the same vet for that long. The vet retired and now we have a new one, and when Keesha ears were bothering her I brought her to the vet and he said that they were infected (which is not the first time it has happened) and she has her usual antibiotics, both oral and topical.
Anyway, he said that we should not be cleaning her ears every couple days but to do it only twice a month. The old vet said that doing it every couple of days was fine. It doesn't seem to affect Keesha one way or another.
I was just wondering what other people have heard from their vets about how often to clean out spaniels ears because I now have two conflicting opinoins. Either way I am not going to do a thorough cleaning unitl after the follow-up appointment in a week, like the new vet said.
Just curious though,
