"My dog is a Lhasa-Apso, and he has had a recurring ear infection since we adopted him about a year ago. We took him to the vet several times and tried different ointments. We tried a homeopathic ear drop too, as well as an ear flush made of alcohol, white, vinegar, and Betadine. The flush helped, for a day or two at a time, but did not cure the infection. Finally I took an old medicine dropper and filled it about half-full with some organic EVCO. It stopped the itching immediately. After about a month the ear that was infected the worst started bothering him again. The other ear seemed fine. I repeated the dose again, and the dog immediately stopped scratching his ear. I do believe that this works better than anything else we have used, including prescription drops and ointments. I think that the one ear is completely cured. I will keep an eye on the other one, and dose with EVCO again if any sign of infection returns."

"We too have a Lasa Opso and we adopted her when she was about 2. She right away began having terrible ear infections. Nothing has seemed to work. She now seems to have a serious yeast infection. She has scratched her whole body, making sores everywhere and has lost most of her hair. She smells awful and is miserable. We managed to get her ears clear via antibiotics and drops...but I know that the infections will be back. What is EVCO? I am working on her yeast but would love to be able to keep her ears clean permanently."

"What is EVCO? My yellow lab (2 yrs.) has a terrible ear yeast infection. We have tried vet treatments, only to have them re-occur. I am now trying Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. Thanks for sharing and hope we all find help for our precious pets."

Theresa

The wonderful Theresa from Minneapolis, MN has been helping pet owners and their beloved pets around the world on Earth Clinic since 2013.

About Theresa

Theresa from Minneapolis was born and raised in the inner city, always wishing she had been raised on a farm.

Her love for creatures great and small began at an early age, starting with caterpillars - which continues to this day, along with an interest in all insects and 'creepy crawlies'.

Theresa's interest in pet health started with a bird keeping hobby at age 14, where she learned from another hobbyist that the simple addition of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) in a bird's drinking water kept fungal infections away; she was able to share this with her avian vet who in turn prescribed it to her own clients; Theresa was surprised to learn that she could teach her vet a thing or two. This important lesson - that each of us can be a teacher - was a turning point for Theresa, and  fueled  her quest for the knowledge held in lore,  and remedies passed by word of mouth. That quest for knowledge continues to this day, as new and old remedies alike are explored. She may not have experience with a particular issue, but she will research it to the best of her ability and share what she finds freely, in the hopes that you can heal or improve your pet's health.

"Hey Susan,

Recurring ear infections may be the result of the wrong diet. Please check the ingredients on your bag of kibble - if you see corn or grain ingredients they may be causing these infections. Try switching to a grain free diet, and consider Ted's Borax Protocol for dogs to fight the yeast from the inside out."

"Not true on the diet. I thought that too. My dogs have been on a grain free diet for 6 months, and voila. ear infection, both dogs. so not true."

"Hey Jessie!

I agree with you 100%! While grain based diets have been linked with many ear and skin issues, and grain free diets have been seen to resolve many of these issues, maintaining a dog's health is a constant effort. So while a dog's ear infections may be resolved with the introduction of a grain free diet, they can and do recur for many reasons - reasons that can be tricky to find out. Grain free is superior to a grain based diet, however it is just one piece of the puzzle to maintaining good health."

"I too am having trouble with my Lasa Opso same problem with ears and itching. But also have green mucus coming from his eyes. I feel so bad for my dog. I take him to the vet and they just give him prednisone shots. Which seems to make everything worse. I'm afraid to take him to the vet anymore. Can someone please help"

"Grain free kibble is still a problem. It?s over processessed carbohydrates. I went this route and despite this we battled bloody swollen painful ear infections for several years. Put him on grain free canned food. Helped but then went to RAW food diet ( frozen in a bag product ) and that fixed it, along with A homeopathic drops which contained essentially witch hazel, white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, marshmallow root etc. Then Flash forward a year or so and I move to France and my dog gets harvest mites from running through the tall wheat fields. Such a terrible infection not even shampoo for it helped. Vet gave him that damn Apoquel ( I have no idea how bad this is for pets ) and an antihistamine shot and antibiotics ALL at once. Temporary fix ... back in the USA again, back on his miracle raw food but this time he didn?t seem healthy and had the scratching again despite no fleas or mites . No amount of aloe or vitamin E oil has helped but to soften his elephant like skin slightly . Now I?m reading it?s a yeast infection in his skin due to the apoquel drug. Let?s hope these natural remedies work. I no longer trust vets as they just want to throw harsh drugs at him without regard to the after effects."

"Agree on grain free kibble being problematic. I bought my dog a sample bag of a certain grain free food and he loved it. I purchased a bigger bag and only recently I realized that my dog's tumor grew during the period he was eating that food. I have pictures of him before and after he started that food and the tumor DOUBLED its size in a month. I don't think canned grain free food is any better, because there needs to be added something in the food to keep it fresh. Better to buy something that can be frozen instead of having an added ingredient to keep it fresh.

My dog now eats one of those subscription foods delivered to my doorstep. the reason why is because in the wild, dogs do not eat raw food. I know most people say raw food is great, but an Indian vet enlightened me by saying that dogs in the wild often eat road kill, and the dead animal was warm at a certain point."

"Warm road kill is not raw meat?? My pupper is the healthiest, happiest boy, he eats only raw chicken feet and organic raw eggs. He's never been on grain except when I didn't know better about the supposedly high quality food I was giving years ago. I highly recommend his diet, btw he turns his nose up at the rest of the leg, he must innately know all that collagen and gristle is what he needs."

"Colloidal silver. Both in their water, and misted into the face and ears a few times per day - should do the trick. Some use it on their show dogs, just for that yellowing gunk of the hair around the eyes. I like the hairdresser's mist bottle that continues to mist after you pull the trigger. Super fine, feels good. BUT, I ALSO got a pocket, ultrasonic facial mister which is AWESOME. It's weird to inhale through the mouth though. Awesome inhaled through the nose and in the eyes but too fine or something, inhaled through the mouth. But the hairdresser's mister is a wetter mist and a little too wet for the eyes but awesome through the mouth.

Ultrasonic "nano" mist is weird. It's as if the lungs think it's air, at first, and then does a sort of scrambly thing to adjust to it. Which takes a couple of seconds. I don't like it. I don't know if dogs would like it or not. It would probably be fine to run an ultrasonic humidifier near them but aimed into their face...I don't think I'd do that. It seems fine in the ears but I'm human so...LOL!

I did read of a woman putting colloidal silver drops into her dogs ears that then cleared themselves up, as opposed to her having to try to get a wipe in there to clean out the gunk - which her dog wouldn't stand for. So you could try drops."

"Would this treatment work on skin yeast infections? On my 10yr cocker spaniel I have his ear infection under control but yeast infection spread to his skin and now raw."
