Re: [dogslover] Smelly ears [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello,Smile

Does your dog have an ear infection? If yes,then that's the cause of the smell.

Another thing is,dogs will always have *a* smell in their ears. It will never be 100% gone. It's just a smell.

It's hard to tell whether or not the product works and your definition of "smell" could be different from mine.. Crazy without actaully seeing,or in this case,smelling the dog.

"They" could be right,if the smell you and "they" are referring to is the cocker ear smell/odour.

But if the smell you are referring to is caused by an infection,then you could get some cleaner from the vet and work from there.

Re: Smelly ears [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi all

One of my dogs have the same smelly problem, plus lots of wax. I took her to the vet and got her checked for mite, yeast etc. All returned negative. I have also tried a lot of off-counter ear cleansers bu they didn't work. I clean her ears today and tomorrow I see brown wax already.

Is there a herbal remedy that anyone can share? I heard that Apple Cider Vinegar is supposed to help. Any opinion?

Hi,Smile

I too hv the same problem. (Might not be exactly the same but from the description,it seems so)

What I found out,for my dog neways,is not to clean too often. Cleaning it too often(everyday) seems to aggravate it. Leaves it kind of raw and the amount of wax would double.

Not cleaning it so often,the amount of wax is less. Yes,apple cider vinegar does work as a cleaner. Diluted of course. Try a mild salt solution as well.

Hi!!!

My dog use to have smelly ears too. Used ear cleaner to clean her ears but the next day her ears will smell so bad again Frown. Everyone was complaining that she smell so bad and din wan to go near her Frown. Then I found out a hemeopathic remedy that really help to solve my dog's problem. After using it for 2 weeks I can see the result.....no more smelly ears and I din even followed the recommended dosage as instructed.....busy mar and tend to forgot Tongue but it really works. Smile.

Re: [RealityDreamer & May] Smelly ears [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello Smile

Recently, I took my other dog to the vet for a booster jab and I mentioned my problem to the vet. He then mixed some solution (with antibiotic) for me to try. His instructions were to spray them on ears twice a day and gradually reduce it until it recovers. I am a bit sceptical as I question the idea of using antibiotic too much.

Anyway, what I did now is to clean it once a week so as not to aggravate her ears. But occassionally I will spray her ears with the antibiotic solution. I have yet to see anything special

May, can you share with us the homeopathic solution u mentioned in your post?

Thanks & best regards

Yeah...lots of rules and regulations in this forum....not complaint but just got to bear with it. I think instruction or solution should be ok but we can't post any product names here as it is some sort of advertisement of the products. All I can say is the homeopathy remedy really helps my dog.

Bring your MS to any groomer and ask them pluck the ear canal hair for you. Wink

Use ear cleaner to clean your MS weekly after bathing. You can try using this ear cleaner brand call #1 All System. Put few drop of the ear cleaner into the ear and massage it about 1 min and then use a cotton butt to clean the ear just around the ear canal area. Make sure don't poke to deep in the ear yaWink

Hope this help.

Yes. It is dry skin that stick on the hair.Unsure Usually is fungus or bacteria infection. But you say is around the nose, ear and mouth area that why I not sure. Did't see that kind of problem before. Usually the dry skin is around the head, ear and body.

Let us know after you visit the vet yaWink
