Yeast infection in dog's ears

Postby aunt betty » Mon Feb 24, 2014 10:48 am

My dog stays inside the house and is prone to yeast infections.
Tried everything including "The Purple Stuff".

I found that this product works quickly to cure flare-ups. Rinsing weekly seems to be preventing the problem.

Took me years to find an affordable alternative to Ottomax and it works way faster. Ottomax really was somewhat ineffective but is what a vet will prescribe.

If your dog has yeast infections in it ears...try this product. Will save you the vet visit, bill, and the cost of Ottomax.

It works wonders on Milo.
Instant relief.

I believe that chronic ear infections are almost always due to a food allergy.
If you clear up the infection, and then find the right food that your dog "gets along with", it won't come back.

Ear infections have nothing to do with swimming, or dirty ears.

What about just a one time thing? My pup had an ear infection and I asked the vet about allergies etc because I had read that too. He said unless they are chronic it is more than likely just from being dirty and the ph balance in there changing to allow bacteria to prosper.

We've changed feed many times. It don't matter and its chronic if I don't keep cleaning.
Look close at what it says on the label. "Dual action to kill odor causing bacteria and yeast."
It works.

Five years of changing dog chows...sucked and made no difference.

I too have used this product to clean ears. Best stuff I used for that to date.

Interesting AB. I'm not a vet by any stretch of the imagination but, my pooch is having the same issue, and we are now on food type #4 (grain free, salmon/sweet potato) with weekly cleanings, and if there isn't any improvement in the next 3 months, I'll give this a try. Our vet is stumped too. :no:

My female gets this issue from about late October until mid to late march , once it warms up outside it seems to clear up. Inside dog that doesn't hunt....don't know what causes it . Had a German shepherd that would get it in the summer and it would clear up in late fall and winter...

The cleaning solution is cheap. Another thing that helps is anti-fungal anti-bacterial baths.
I only bathe him 2-3 times a year. The baths help if I soap up his ears.
