    More recently, Lenny attended the vets again prescribed with the same treatments listed above with a complimentary ear flush thrown in for good measure. They also performed a number of blood/allergy test's which came back OK.

    I have attached a few pictures with outline Lenny's condition. As you can see, the ear is inflamed and gunky - brown substance. Strangely, Lenny is also developing the same condition beneath his tail folds and under he's eye creases.

    I have been cleaning the affected areas with an antiseptic mousse and diluted tea tree oil (Applying with cotton wool pads) . This appears to be soothing Lenny's infected areas and relieving some discomfort.

    Has anyone here encountered this stubborn infection? I believe it's some form of yeast infection which could point to many causes ( food, environment etc ). It's probably worth mentioning that recently I have noticed wheezy breathing from Lenny.

    Any advice would be much appreciated

    Thanks,

    James and Lenny

    Hi James. There isn't anything I can add to the already great advice everyone has already given you. I deal with the same issues with Bulldozer, he has many allergies to protein. ACV and Witch Hazel definitely help. I also use an ear cleaner called Thrive Genetian Ear Solution and Cleanser. It helps heal inner ear infections caused by Staph, Strep, and Pseudomonas bacteria, Malassezia, and Candida yeast. It contains Witch Hazel, Boric Acid, Genetian Violet, and Collodial Silver. I buy it at RENs Pet Depot.

    Our Barkley had his first bad ear infection a couple months ago and the vet packed his ears with ointment. We went back a week or so later and it still wasn't cleared up so they packed them again and after getting checked again a couple weeks later the infection was all gone! I think this was a much better option than having to put ointment in multiple times a day at home!
