                     Recurring Dog Ear Infections

Does your Dog get recurring ear infections?

This newsletter contains some new treatments in terms of treating ear infections at home.

In fact one of the MOST common reason I saw dogs in veterinary practice is due to ear infections.


Your pet keeps shaking its head and scratching at its ears. Often you will see a foul-smelling black, yellow, or brown discharge. The ears may be very red and tender.


Ear infections are most typical in dogs. Most ear infections are caused by an underlying allergy. Some are caused by water in the ear after bathing or swimming. Dogs with large floppy ears, such as basset hounds, are prone to infections as their ear canals have poor air circulation, trapping moisture and allowing bacteria and yeast to grow. Dogs with ear infections caused by yeast usually have a black discharge; this is commonly second to an allergy. Dogs with bacterial ear infections often have an organism called staphylococcus; in rare cases a more serious infection is caused by bacteria called pseudomonas.

The PRINCIPLE of this is that you

1. Treat the infection.

2. Deal with underlying cause

Most likely causes: underlying allergies, secondary recurring yeast infections

The yeast show up as black waxy debris, and many dog owners thought their dog had ear mites, where in fact this is extremely rare in dogs.

Here is a picture of a dog with a Yeast Ear Infection

How to Treat Yeast

1. Make a ear cleaning/treating cleanser at home.

- 200 ml of Green Tea ( ie 3/4 cup of green tea), I prefer tea leaves, but you can use a tea bag. Allow it to cool.
- Add in 50 ml ( 3 tablespoons) of Apple Cider Vinegar.

You can use this twice daily for 5-7 days, as needed. Keep it covered in the fridge, and it will last at least 30 days. You will only need 1-2 tspns to clean the ear.

Here you are squirting the mixture in the ear, rubbing the base of the ear to loosen the debris/infection, and wiping excess out with a cotton ball.

IF your dog has open wounds in the ear, avoid the ACV and only use the Green Tea.

2. Topical antifungal cream.

Another option is to pick up an OTC antifungal cream of the drug Clotrimazole- this is the meds used to treat most dog ear infections in veterinary ear products. A 1% clotrimazole cream of 30g only costs approx $10, and may last you for a year, vs the $30 vet one which lasts a week.

This is ideal if your dog is getting recurring yeast infections, and you want a less expensive vet option.

Decrease inflammation:

Most of these ear infections are red/inflamed, so it is nice to deal with the inflammation without using a steroid such as Prednisone.

I would suggest Curcumin, safe and effective to give long term.

CURCUMIN. 95% curcuminoids can be very helpful to decrease the level of itching and ear inflammation. The dose is 100mg/10lbs of body weight daily, but give capsules as stains everything orange!

Deal With the Underlying Allergy

Most dogs with recurring ear infections have an underlying allergy. There are 2 things I suggest.

FATTY ACIDS. These are a must for any allergy that triggers recurring ear infections. Flax seed, oil or fish oil. I advise therapeutic doses of EFA's at 1000mg per 10lbs daily. That means giving your dog 1 tablespoon of Flax Oil/40 lbs daily.

ALLERGY DIET. For pets that get recurring ear infections it is important to try a less allergenic diet. It should include a completely different protein with minimal added ingredients. This MUST be fed for 12 weeks. At least do a 6 week Food Trial as most dogs will respond by then. I have had good results with Fish and Sweet Potato.

If your dog has a recurring ear infection, I suggest you follow some of these steps to finally stopping it at home.
