Question by Sandra: for ?
can anybody suggest a cheap for a dogs ear infection? I have a cocker spaniel and she has some kind of ear infection but I am out of work so I am trying to avoid her to the expenisive vet.
Has anybody had any luck with any home remedies for this? I have tried putting the fluids from a couple of vit. E capsules in her ear but I am not sure if it has worked or not…I have only just did this yesterday though.
Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance.

Red, inflamed ears are one of the most common problems in dogs. Allergies to food, pollens and molds,hairy ear canals, and swimming causes frequent in many dogs. This video shows some helpful home remedies you can use to help with the discomfort. I have found that many ear infections can be helped or cured by following my tips in the Dish Diet. Use caution when treating or flushing an inflamed ear. The ear drum could be damaged or ruptured. Always seek veterinary treatment for painful or serious infections. This video is intended to be helpful with mild ear problems

    Huh, thats cool. Didnt know you could use dawn. I use vinegar, and IPA. Diluted of course. If the infection gets too bad, I use mycanozole. Dr. Greg: I just moved to Norcal Im looking for a vet in CA that I can work closely with on furthering my breed in the right direction. Not really a regular vet for check ups, as I believe your about 3.5 hours from me. More of a consultant I guess. Would be nice to have a zoologist around. if if its something youre intersted in, can I PM you?

    What’s IPA(India Pale Ale?). What does PM mean. What breed are you working with?

    • threezerol944t
    • October 5, 2012

    Hahaha. Some how I thought you were gonna say insia pale ale. Im a stout man my self, but Ive been known to drinks lighter bodied ales. Isopropyl alcohol. PM=private message, didnt want to be too forward, and just message your inbox. Leavitt bulldogs are the breed I work with.More commonly known as olde english bulldogges. leavittbulldogassociation (dot) com Im trying to better the bulldog, it is a breed in much need of restoration.Possibly more than any other. They are not what they used to be.

    Great, feel free to PM. Glad you are working to inject sanity into pure breeding. We have ruined many breeds for “show standards”

    Thank you very much ! We did our dogs ears today and there so clean now 🙂
    We give him liquid glucosamine daily can we still give him the buffered aspirin also ?
    God bless you n your family fully n richly 🙂

    • Greg Martinez DVM
    • October 5, 2012

    Yes you can give him the aspirin also. May sure and feed him a diet with more oils and less allergens. So many ear infections are caused by food allergies!

    • ladysmithrose
    • October 5, 2012

    Thanks 🙂 I feed my dogs pork roast,spinach ,kale,carrots,zucchinis,yams n pototoes,Sometimes wheatgrass on top of there dinners ,eggs at times ,hamburger,Omega 3 fish oil pills ,both get 3 of them daily , I will add oatstraw tea to there dinner sometimes for calcium and magnesium,sometimes sardines, Yet the male german shep still has ear problems and chews his paws .Have been feeding them both like this for few years now.For treats raw beans,lettuce, carrots ,sometimes mangos and bananas

    • ladysmithrose

    l’m not sure what the male german shep is allergic too ,he didnt do well with milk or cheese so that was removed. Our local vet has no clue get that blank look from them. The female german shep has a dry nose ,Helps abit with the fish oils her coat is soft and shinny yet that darn nose.I make moisturing salves for her nose and l’m always checking her nose if I dont it gets to the point that it will crack and bleed and it doesnt stop right away. We then have to use liquid bandage on her nose

    • ladysmithrose
    • October 5, 2012

    We then have to set our clocks to wake every 2 hours to check on her and oil her nose.None of the vets did nothing about it at all got that blank look and told to use vaseline. Along with a bill for doing nothing.I brush their teeth also. The male german shep has bumps inside near his heel ,he had one on top of his foot.Last vet decided to cut it out and it return again ! That cost us 500 dollars !!!!!!! l’m not going back. I have used comfrey on his bumps

    • ladysmithrose
    • October 5, 2012

    And the comfrey has helped him. So I have planted more comfrey plants. l’m getting more into holist healing since the vets are just taking our money and were not happy with the results most times. Okay l’m done lol sorry this is so long. Wish you lived in canada would be seeing you:) Take care and God bless you n your family:)

    He has allergies to pollens and molds as well as food allergies. Some dogs allergies can’t be controlled with better ingredients , so atopica has to be used for those dogs or cats. Regular heel crack cream from the pharmacy may help that cracked nose. Vit E may help also

    How often can you do this?
    

    • Greg Martinez DVM
    • October 5, 2012

    Twice weekly to clean and treat. Prevention is better by feeding better ingredients or occasional medications. Check out the free11 practical home remedies on the dogdishdiet website

    My moms 14 year old mix dog. Has a black build up in his ear. It has a wired smell to it not strong kinda misty. You only smell it sometimes. I tried flushing it out. Still had to use a q tip to get lots out. I can only do a part of his ear with the q tip because I’m scared to hurt him. Anyways I got most out using dawn and water. With a bulb syringe is that ok? After I could see his ear was a lil red but didn’t notice any inflammation. I then took a cotton ball and socked it in water/vinger

    • JenniferRayDonnell
    • October 5, 2012

    Closed his ear and rubbed the out side of his ear to rub the cotton around a lil inside. Also could I use benadryl cream like you used Corazon in my moms dog ears?

    • JenniferRayDonnell
    • October 5, 2012

    Oh and putting water in a dogs ears won’t hurt them? Where should I shoot the water at what part of the ear I strayed up above the ear conow that could be y most the black ear wax didn’t come loss. Idk and her cat is nasty too she gets black eye burgers and nose too. How can I help her she always had this scents we got her.

    • Greg Martinez DVM
    • October 5, 2012

    You can use a benadryl cream also

    • Greg Martinez DVM
    • October 5, 2012

    Water won’t hurt the ears as long as they are cleaned and the dog can shake them dry. Vinegar/water afterward helps treat yeast and bacterial infection

    hi Dr. Greg. i treat a dog suffering from external Otis infection . i used this mixture (clotrimazole 45 gm , betamethasone 5 mg and gentamycin 15 mg ) and applied in ear canal twice daily for 1 week but it don’t make difference . before i applied this mixture , i wash the ear canal with trade mark preparation used to clean the ear canal . please dr. greg advised me is that correct medication and what you can added to that medication

    Ear problems are often secondary to allergies, narrow canals, swimming, or hairy ears. Restricting wheat in food or treats is real important! Sometimes cyclosporine, prednisone, or weekly ear wash and treatment is needed for allergies to pollens and molds or for dogs that can’t tolerate commercial food and can’t get homecooked or raw food.

    I use the same trio of ingredients in treating ear problems, but I always change the diet to the Dog Dish Diet and/or home cooked food

    Ear infections can be caused by so many things. Treat for the wrong thing and you’ll end up with more problem and expense than you started with.

    Take the dog to the vet.

    • rescue member

    There is NO home remedy – you need to get your dog to the vet, have the ear infection identified — could be a yeast infection, could be ear mites.

    The vet will then give you the proper treatment for the problem.

    This is not expensive and absolutely necessary. Ear infections don’t go away with home remedies, you’ve just made it worse with the E capsule.
    This isn’t an option, it is absolutely necessary to get your dog treated by a vet – ear infections are painful, itch like mad, and can cause deafness and worse for your dog.

    Get that dog to the vet — doesn’t cost that much for the infection to be identified and the right medication given.

    • Cris S

    First off, DO you know what type of infection your dog has?
    You cannot treat with remedies at home if you do not know what your treating.

    It can be ear mites, bacteria, yeast, and for each you do a totally different treatment.

    Do not put oil into your dogs ear. What goes deep into the ear – has no way to get back out and can seriously harm your dog and cause great pain for him. Self treating at home is dangerous and you realy should try and find a way to get your dog to the vet. At least find out what type of infection and you may just be able to buy drops etc from a local pharmacy that sells animal/farm animal supplies.
