My name is ***** ***** I am a Vet tech with over 35 years experience with all Pets.
Do you see any debris in the ears?
Is the ear red indie?
Does she have hanging ears?
Is there any smell tothe ear?
Thank you! Frome your descriptionI suepect that she either has a bacterial or Yeast infection. This will require medication from the Vet.
In the mean time, you can clean the ears with a mixture of three parts Apple Cider vinegar and one part alcohol and put a few drops in each ear, run them gently and you will hear the squisiness, Once that is dome a gauze pad or come cotton wool and wipe the inside of the ear. This should soothe them until you can see the Vet.
You can give 102 mg of Benedryl per pound of body weight to stop the itching.
Please reply to discuss this information and for question. If the information I supplied is helpful please take a moment to rate my service 5 stars.
When there is a smell there is an infection, either bacterial or Yeast. They can be a result of a food allergy. Greains are considered an allergen, but it has also been found the protein sources can cause this problem like beef, chicken, Eggs, geen peas.
Allergens can be ingested inhales and contact. and yes allergies can cause ear infections among other issues.
You can try a food trial I suggest a grain free and unique Protein source food like Natural Ba***** *****D . Bison and Veninison are good foods. In order to do a food trial nothing but new food for 6 weeks after she has been gradually weaned on to it.
Before the food trial I suggest getting the ear cleared up.
Please reply to discuss this information.
The apple Cider vinegar and the alcohole will clean them up a bit and the Benedryl relieve the itching until you have her seen.
I try to give you information to help.. My Goddaughters dog had this problem and we has to clean the infection and then start the food trial.
