Hello, I am sharing some tips, Hope so it will help you. There are several tips for preventing and treating dog ear infections. One of the most important is to regularly clean your dog's ears to remove any excess wax or debris. This can be done using a solution specifically designed for cleaning dog ears, and should be done at least once a week or as recommended by your veterinarian. Another tip is to keep your dog's ears dry, as moisture can contribute to the development of ear infections.

This means avoiding activities that could cause your dog's ears to become wet, such as swimming, and drying their ears thoroughly after baths. Additionally, it is important to watch for signs of an ear infection, such as redness, swelling, or discharge, and to contact your veterinarian if you notice any of these symptoms. Early treatment can help to prevent the infection from worsening and causing more serious health problems.

1. weekly or more frequent cleaning

2. getting any allergies under control often requires a dermatologist

3. use a medicated ear treatment vs cleaner for cleaning and make sure any infection is truely cleared before stopping medication

we have had good luck with www.midatlanticbassets.com › articles › BluePowerEarTreatment.pdf
Mikey, what medicated ear treatment do you use for cleaning? We've always used Epiotic, but wondering if there's a better product.
