    Default I think Wallygator has an ear infection...

    First off I'm going to admit that I haven't been keeping up w/the pups like I should be... I've been on vacation for the last couple of weeks. This weekend when I was brushing him and giving him his weekly groom, I noticed that Wally's ear was nasty, and now I've noticed him rubbing that side of his face on the carpet. I had some ear cleansing solution that I put in his ear, and it says you can do that a couple of times a day. At what point should I head to the vets?!! I can't really take him before Friday... this week Lily starts back at school, and our schedule is pretty crazy.

    Try some apple cider vinegar-- make him shake his head to help clear it up.

    If he is still itching come Friday you'll need to take him in

    I would take the Wallmeister to the vet. If you do...do not clean the ears because they may need to take a scrapping to check for mites. Medical terms include Otitis Externa--outer ear; Otitis Media--middle ear; and Otitis Interna--inner ear.

    It's a penny for your thoughts but everyone want to put their two cents worth in. So that is my two cents worth. We hope Wally is feeling better soon.

    Agree with Christine, give it a day or two with the cleanings and see if you notice any improvement. If not, then get him in so it doesn't get worse. The cleaning may help though if you caught it early!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Lambeau is having a heck of a summer thanks to allergies-- had him in for a check today because he is just miserable and my vet said he is yeasty -- witch hazel and AVC to keep them clean -- hopefully that is Wally and you caught it, but any sign if pain just get him on Friday

    No playing the Blame Game, Honey...you know this could happen if you
    were there every day & cleaning ears every day, comes out of nowhere.
    You just happened to be on vacation when it did...stop it now!

    In the middle of another, unexpected move a couple years ago, and summer
    allergies, Cami got a really nasty ear (didn't have a Vet yet) so I did the ACV
    a couple days and it cleared on it's own. Set up a Friday appt. and hope you
    get to cancel it because he's better...praying now that WallyGator ear heals.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Ugh, Tracey. Tate had yeast in his ears recently too. They just cleaned them out. It's been a rough summer for both Tate and Finn too as far as skin issues/allergies go! they're both just scratchy, and lots of gunk in their folds and wrinkles. No fun. Hope Wally will feel better soon!

    From @Saalwi*/

    SarahIt's been a little while since I've posted so to catch up...Sgt.Schultz is turning 10 tomorrow and is still full of himself. His health has been pretty good (lots of maintenance) but I wouldn't trade him for the world.I've been home cooking for about 3 years (in a pinch we use a grain free honest kitchen that we add a protein to) and this seems to work well for his*system.His*chronic ear infections have been healed with a blend of essential oils that we apply weekly with a cotton balls - better than any antibiotic or vet supplied ear drop.Here is the essential oil recipe for ear infections or just maintaining good ear*health.Spray*on cotton ball and wipe out ears ...don't spray directly in*ears.In*a 2 ounce glass spray bottle, combine:15 drops Lavender15 drops Geranium15 drops Frankincense15 drops Basil10 drops ArborvitaeFractionated*Coconut Oil*to fill the bottle about 3/4 of the way fullShake bottle well before using. Use once a week to treat ears that have an ear infection or once a month as a preventative measure in ears that are prone to recurrent ear infectionsIf ears are especially inflamed or infected, dilute 2 drops of lavender in 4 drops of fractionated*coconut oil*on a cotton ball and apply lightly to soothe the inflamed ear area.

    WALLYGATOR GET THOSE PRECIOUS EARS WELL HONEY. I WOULD TAKE HIM TO THE VET TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON. ELMO HAS BEEN ITCHING HIS LEFT EAR ALOT FOR THE PAST 2 DAYS, THE VET GAVE ME SOME MED. IT IS CALLED MICONOSOL LOTION, 6 DROPS IN EACH EAR TWICE A DAY FOR 14 DAYS, I HAVE USED THIS BEFORE ON ELMO, IT WORKS GREAT FOR HIS EARS.

    So sorry to hear Wallygator's got an ear infection. And I agree with Carol... don't blame yourself, it just happens. Jersey's got one too! Lot's of good suggestions here, sending healing thoughts and prayers that the little man is well very soon!
