Doggy In Need Of Help!! Please!!!?

One of my dogs has a Chronic Ear Infection. Currently, I use what the vet gave us. He prescribed ‘Tresaderm’. Along with the drops, I pluck his ears, dry them out after baths, keep them as clean as possible, but the infection keeps coming back. It never ends. I am tight on money right now and going to the vet is getting costly. I have searched the Internet many times trying to find a natural way to cure him. Does anyone know of any natural ways to cure his ear infection?? All help will be greatly appreciated!!

    What is the cause of the chronic ear infection? Is your dog the kind of breed that has long droopy ears?
    When my bichon got her ear infected with yeast due to constant moisture, I applied rubbing alcohol with a cottonball 5 times a day. It doesn’t leave a wet ‘residue’ and evaporates easily (but don’t soak it!) I also plucked her ears frequently to ensure a drier environment. Last resort – use a soft, light towel or bandana and tie your dog’s ears up so they constantly ventilate. By taking away the hospitable environment, the yeast went away. Took quite a few weeks, but it was completely gone in the end. 🙂

    I had a dog like that. He was a Chow with prick ears. He would have a constant ear infection and no antibiotics could get rid of it. I was told that because he was old, his immune system was poor and he had a low Thyroid count.
    Unfortunately, there is no home remedy. Have your vet run blood tests and check his Thyroid levels. I don’t know how often you bathe him, but try bathing him less often and put cotton balls in his ears when you do. That will help prevent water seeping into his ear canals.

    I’m confused by what you mean when you say you “pluck” his ears. Can you elaborate?
    Cleaning too much could be stripping away some of the wax that is coating the ear to keep it healthy. Did the vet explain a healthy cleaning schedule for him? It could just be a case of you doing too much to protect the ears and are in turn causing more harm than good. For my dog, I just rinse with EPI solution every so often, and always rinse it after he is in the ocean. Other than that I pretty much leave his ears alone and we have had minimal ear issues.
    Hmm, I don’t think you should be removing hair from his ears. I’ve never heard of that before as a part of an ear care regimen( i’m not a vet though, just my opinion). I understand not wanting to keep going back to the vet as that IS very expensive. If the infection has come back this time, I suggest you go in, get the meds and ask the vet to clearly explain to you how to prevent these infections if possible. Tell him what you are doing at home and see if he/she agrees that it is the best course of action. Your paying for the service, so they should be more than happy to help you out!

    EDIT: So, it’s not his diet, So try to just keep as much water out as possible. You can use a small amount of rubbing acahol, if you need to dry them out. Make sure when he’s in the bathtub, to put cotton in his ears, to keep the water out.
    You can go to your local natural remedy store, ask the employees for herbs that help ear infections. Ask if they are safe for pets. Then again, call your vet, and ask if the herbs are safe for your pet! Good Luck!
    ADD: Keep from getting any water in his ears, if you give him a bath, put cotton balls in his ears. If you reply to my answer, I will reply back with more information, if necessary.
    Ok, Here it goes!
    Answer these for me, Is your dog having any of these symptoms?
    *Itching?
    *Diahreah?
    *Throwing Up?
    *Pawing at Ears??
    *Reacurring Ear Infections?**I know you have this one**
    If it is having any of those symptoms?
    If so, Maybe it’s time to talk to your vet about chaning your pet’s diet.
    Most of those symptoms can be caused my alergy to pet food.
