    Default Black junk in ears DAILY

    We routinely take care of Missi's ears with Virbac Epi-Otic solution - her Right ear is clean, but her left fills up with junk... we cleaned them yesterday, and today it was back like we didnt even clean it yesterday... its BLACK.... allergies? infection? we can't get her into the Vet until Jan 5th ! (2 weeks?? oh ****!)

    We had this problem with FTSE the vet kept saying it was infection but I read here somewhere it could be their food so we have switched Ftse's food to grain free no chicken or beef just lamb and miracle it's cleared up I don't have too much faith in the vets EBN has helped me way more than vets have.

    If it looks like coffee grounds, it's ear mites. See your Vet. If not, keep cleaning regularly with ear cleaner from Concord Pet Supply. See your Vet. Be gentle with the cleaning until proper diagnosis is made.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    Going to 'A' Vet this afternoon, our regular Vet all of a sudden has become extremely difficult to get into (Jan 6th next avail?!?!?!) This Vet is literally across the street, so if Need be I can load up into my power wheelchair, lock her down in my lap w/ her harness and multiple leashed and shoot across a 4 lane road ...... *MEEP MEEP* :p we'll find out if its Mites -- yet I dont see them coming back that quickly (a full colony over night) I suspect Yeast as fast as it came back, and yea, it looks like coffee grounds -- Doesnt the Vinegar burn Christine ? -- poor thing its getting red, Dottie doesnt know the word GENTLE -- she's OCD Scrubbing around the house... so I guess its her OCD w/ a junkie puppy ear

    My theory in these cases is that it is always something to do with the food or the enviroment. You can medicate and apply what ever you want topically, but if you don't find the cause, the problem will always return.

    Vet $123.00 later Yeast infection -- Claro Otic Solution -- its suppose to work for a month (we'll see) in the mean time we'll have to start looking at riding the food merry-go-round. (Maybe) What ticks me off, our usual Vet cleaned her ears, and it looked the same, and didnt say anything about a possible yeast infection 6 weeks ago.... Grrrr

    Yep, Lambeau's issue is environmental allergies... he is allergic to everything green -- including evergreen trees. so, for him it is a year round issue.

    the mix will work for her

    @RaRett: I have followed @2BullyMama's advice with 50/50 apple cider vinegar + witch hazel when Castor's ears have been red and itchy (or brownish) and it has been great - problems have cleared up in a few days.
