Well my 3 year old George (aka Georgethefierce) has had re-ocurring ear infections (don't they all). We have been to the specialists who says it's a mixture of Yeast and Fungus (WEEEEE!) after treating it with the normal solution for weeks we found it wasn't getting better so back to the specialist we went. Turns out GTF has two ruptured eardrums (fromt he build up of the goop) and now needs to use three different cleansers daily.......my question is....has anyone succesfully fought the evil fungus and won......I love George dearly but $500 every 2 months is getting steep....

Any and all input appreciated

Thanks

Sorry to hear about George's ear problems. With fungus, it's important to use medications and cleansers that are active specifically against fungus. (Most antibiotics are active against bacteria, but not fungus.) It's also very important to be religious about cleaning often and sticking to your cleaning schedule. Miss a day or two, and the problem gets out of control again. :(

Ditto on Betsy's suggestions. However, I have found that making sure that the kibble and treats I use have NO CORN in them has been helpful as well for chronic ear and fungus problems in my house (for all my dogs, bassets and wannabees).

Good luck!

Good thought.....I was wondering if it could be food related......we have used the herbal solution I found on the site and it's working well.....
