Every year I have a problem with Katy, she regularly gets those horrid wild oat seeds in her ears which are  painful and extremely unpleasant for her at the time,  mean a visit to the vet and usually sedation to remove them.  Has anyone found a reliable way to avoid the seeds getting in ears, I have tried cotton wool but this usually falls out almost immediately so is no help. I try to avoid areas where this stuff grows but it is just about impossible.

Any help or suggestions will be much appreciated

My vet reckons the first week in July is when the grass seed season problem starts.

I check my dogs feet and ears after their walks.  Grass seeds between the toes can work their way up into the shoulder.
