    Poor Vegas. It must suck to have double ear infections. My bullies seem to be shedding extra right now and my poor Frenchton has such itchy watery eyes which of course is causing red yeasty wrinkles. Been giving everybody aller-chlor. It's just non-stop maintenance right now between the three of them.

    I don't wash their heads anymore except with a soapy wash cloth (mild dog shampoo) and then I use a clean wet one to rinse off the shampoo.

    When I suspect ears are bothering them I soak a cotton ball with ear cleaning solution stick it in their ears and squeeze the ear from the outside of the ear so the stuff trickles in. After the ear massage I take out the cotton ball and let them shake out the residue. I use to try the direct method of squirting in the ear but that always freaked them out. Oh, and every time I have to see the vet I always ask for extra Otomax whether I have some or not. Always have to think ahead and try to keep stuff on hand. Can't stand the thought of my babies suffering any longer than they have to.

    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    from what i've been reading in Dog World magazine, those ear products that the vets give you don't fix it - they only temporarily eliminate the symptoms. The vets won't or can't tell you about the things you can do yourself for your dogs' ears.

    They keep you coming back and back and back again for Otomax and those other commonly prescribed otic medicines. The article talks about people that have dogs with chronic ear infections and how they found solutions outside of the veterinary world that work well.

    im so glad hes better and big hugs to him. Sarah had the same thing about 3 weeks ago I noticed one of her ears was looking swollen and red and hot and had some goop in it. I had some leftover ear medicine and used that for several days till it cleared up. I do believe allergy season this year is a bad one. I havent had a problem with her ear in ever so long. Hope vegas gets better soon.

    @sheila, I was like a preacher at a church on Friday at the vet, so many other dogs in there getting allergy shots along with Vegas, I could not tell you how many people I preached to the difference in food makes....but then again....there I sat with Vegas getting an allergy shot, BUT, I said to them his are SEASONAL, it would be so much worse had I not changed his food!!!! so I am sure it was in one ear and out the other with them.

    it always makes me sad when i see people buying crappy food like purina or ol' roy. of course they have the best of intentions, but their doggies could be so much healthier.
