    Default Ear Infections

    Our guy is really prone to ear infections. We clean his ears regularly, and we use a prescription ear flush, TriEDZA (I think?), but he keeps getting ear infections. Three in the last two years, and I think he's getting another one.

    Any suggestions? Is it possible the flush is actually making it worse?

    I think sometimes repeated ear infections can be allergy related... does he have any other signs of allergy? Maybe to much cleaning can cause them... I really don't know... I wipe my dogs ears once a week nowadays, they usually have some gooey stuff in but it has never seemed to bother them and it's not smelly or red thankfully.

    Our guy would get them too. I wipe ears out with Ears so Right (don't pour it in) weekly and the vet recommended I use Posatex Otic Suspension for Dogs (script)

    in his ears after bathing as a precaution. Is your dog swimming or getting wet often?

    We had a bulldog Bella that would get chronic ear infections… we finally started getting her ears packed. I can not remember what exact medicines that they used, but I will tag a member that just had this done recently to her bully. @2BullyMama

    This really worked for our baby…

    He does occasionally go swimming when we visit my parents, but not often.

    Lambeau was getting them and I could not keep his clean... Our vet placed 'Claro' in each ear and i was not to do anything for 3 weeks, it has been about three months now and his ears are still infection free
