- A: You really need to go to a vet straight up. If there is a yeast or bacterial infection, the dog really needs medicated (antibiotic/antifungal) ear drops to clear it up. The other thing with ear infections is that it's important to check that a/ there is nothing down the ear that has triggered the infection (e.g. a grass seed) and that the ear drum is not damaged in anyway. If there's something down the ear, then the infection's not going to go away regardless of what it is treated with. If the ear drum is damaged, you have to be very, very careful about anything that is put in the ear- some products, even veterinary ear drops, can lead to problems such as deafness if they are put down the ear canal and are able to pass through into the middle/inner ear.
- Simple home remedy for yeast infection in dogs ear?
- Q: My dog has had 3 ear yeast infections in 2 years. The first time she had it we took her to the vet and payed 80 bucks for drops. She didn't like those so much. >.> The second time she got an infection it lasted several months before going away on it's own. Now she has another one and I can't afford to take her to the vet again. Is there some simple home remedy that I could possibly spray in her ears? I've heard about using alcohol and vinager(sp?) but I don't know what the exact measurments are. >.< I'd rather it be something I could spray in her ears since she dosen't like people messing with them too much.
- A: I truly believe I have tried every product/home remedy on one of my dogs who suffered from yeast infections in her ears. None worked. What did work was changing her diet. Look for a grain-free food, or one without corn, wheat, and rice. Wellness Super 5 Mix, (formerly fish & sweet potato,) is what I use for her, and she never has yeast infections any more. (Except when she breaks into the chicken/cat/guinea pig/rat/human food :-)Good luck.
