    Default Yeast infection in ear?

    So while I was wiping Roscoe's face today I noticed waxy stuff caked under his ear. When I lifted his ear up I noticed he had a very thin waxy substance running out of his ear. There's so much of his his ear actually makes a...squelchy noise when I rub it. I've been wiping it out but it just won't stop. His ear is also very red and stinky.

    Is this a yeast infection or a general ear infection? I've never dealt with yeast before so I don't know what to look for.

    We're making a trip to the vet tomorrow (Thurs) if he can fit us in. I'm just curious if anyone could hazard a guess on what wrong.




    I know the picture is quite icky- so sorry! This was about five minutes after I'd wiped the discharge out. He's getting very upset with momma messing with his ear.

    annie has only had 1 ear infection and it was due to bathing obviously water got in her ear,it did take antibiotics to clear it,i dont bath her now as shes not a stinky dog well only when shes farting!!!,i now use apple cider vinegar once a week and her ears are fine,so your right to visit the vet if the infection is a bad one anitbiotics will clear it and when bathing be sure to plug the ears up well,karen

    Thanks @karenben! I bet that's what has happened. I just gave him a bath a few days ago and I noticed he shook one of his cotton balls out at some point because I found it in the tub. I didn't even think anything about it. Oops .

    My first guess is food!! I have seen dogs that vets have called immune disoder syndrome ! and the owner almost put them down. 6 weeks later no one recognized them!!!!!

    please folks --the quickest,CHEAPEST way to fix any possible issues,, try FROMM 4 star ,food, and wait 6 weeks. it cant hurt, is a lot cheaper- and at the end you have a great food at leas !!! and they will at least be better to go see the vet!!!
    remember !!! vets have very little nutritional training. (they are there for medical training!! but they listen to pet food salesmen !!(like car salesman!)and believe them. while she needs a vet check, please try the food first for 6 weeks.
    you can get it delivered to your front door from --petfood direct.com-- and don't forget to add English Bulldog as the CODE -and rescue gets a % back. good luck , and let us know.

    PS: I wouls bet if she is that bad she likely has a yeast infection too.

    No help but I am glad you are seeing a vet today. My gosh it looks painful. Poor thing. If it is yeast and not ear infection it could be from food. Actually I believe ear infections can also be brought on by food allergies but could be wrong on that one. Let us know what the vet says.

    Looks like both yeast and infection. While at your vets buy the ear flush. I use it on Vegas once a week and it cleans them right out. Make sure to do it outside, pour the solution down in their ear, massage it in real good for a minute or more...then stand back!! Vegas shakes his head like crazy sending the solution flying. After a few hours you can use a baby wipe and wipe the remaining gunk out and his ears are fresh and pink. The solution smells like cucumber melon. When I bath Vegas I wash his whole body but not his head. I use a washclothe for his face and head so not to get water in his ears.

    just about everything is brought on by food allergies/reactions. fur loss,inter digital cysts(those big blisters that pop, between toes,) yeast in ears,paws,vaginal areas,all over body yeast , itching & licking paws.
    just about every thing can and often is because of food allergies!! not just the meat in the food, but the other ingredients, and or the quality of those ingredients. AND how the food was made !!! yes Bulldogs are THAT REACTIVE to food !!!
    so when choosing food for them, remember. go ONLY with the best for BULLDOGS not just any rated dog food!!! that food may have been rated for LABRADOR RETRIEVER!!!!!!

    @Lindathedogsmaid, So very true, although Vegas still occasionally gets spots of yeast it is nothing like before the food change over a year and a half ago, I was just about to re-home him he stunk so bad and my whole house did...then I found this site!!! Food makes all the difference in the world with these bully's.

    becomforted by teh fact that it is not the water in the ears. I used to believe that too, I actually squirt the water in ther and wiggle the ear around , while bathing . the warm water feels good to them , and follow it up with the acidic,ear solution and work it around. the issue with ears is making sure to fully dry them after the bath, and dry them again, I use make up squares to get them dry and the water absorbed. I also during the week use a 50/50 mix of water /apple cider vinegar solution. this keeps the ears from ever having yeast infections-- ever!!!! at least 2 x a week add any acidic liquid and it keeps the ear to high in acid to have a yeast in the ears. I use an acidic ear cleaner . take note!! if starting out with a yeast infection !!! you must clear it up with antibiotics first then keep it at bay with the mixture!!!!
    and this can clean up a whole body yeast issue to, right after a bath , rinse with this solution!!! for several weeks 4 t 5 .
