Treating a Dog's Ear Infection

Waldo has an ear infection and has been treated twice in one month by the vet. It is much better. There is some infection still there and some puss. What else can I do?

My suggestion is as long as the medicine the vet is providing your pet works; continue using it until it is cleared up. Then, use Blue Powder Ear Wash on a regular basis. Right now while there is puss in the ear is not a good time to do the ear wash treatment. Never use this ear wash with other ear medicines at the same time.

You can do a google search on this ear wash and it's very inexpensive to make and lasts a long time. I use it regularly on my long eared dogs and none of them have any ear infections. Just pour into the ear and massage a minute and wipe excess with cotton balls. All you use is boric acid in powder form, isopropyl alcohol and gentian violet and always mix well before using each time. Directions are on TF and other websites.

When we took our dog to the vet for an ear infection, He gave us a bottle of Oxyfresh ear wash to use after we were done giving him his medication. He said to put the ear wash in his ear every week or two to prevent another infection. I googled Oxyfresh ear wash, and you can buy it online.

Talk to your Veterinarian about the problem.

Agree with FARSTAR -time for a callback to your vet. Meds may have to be adjusted.
