Thread: Yeasty Ears

  1. #1

    Default Yeasty Ears

    Well I am looking for an ear cleaner for yeasty ears, a long time a go there was a product called Leo's ear cleaner which knocked the condition on the head as it was just starting, it worked very well, unfortunately that product does not seem to exist any more.

    I know about diluted maleseb shampoo as an ear rinse, but I am looking for a specific ear product that will do the job.

    Make your own ear cleaner.

    1/3 cup rubbing alcohol
    1/3 cup white vinegar
    1/3 cup witch hazel
    10 drops tea tree oil

    Mix and store at room temperature in a plastic squeeze bottle. For affected ears squirt about 1/4 teaspoon into the ear twice daily for a week, should clear it up. Afterwards use weekly to prevent recurrence.

    This is as good as the old Leo formula was - I have been using it for over a decade now to clean ears and nose rolls, it is wonderful stuff. It even cured my youngest son's tinea when no amount of prescription or OTC medication helped!

    Leo has been re-released under a different name, Troy Alpha ear cleaner.

    As for yeast in the ears, I found that removing all wheat from the diet got my rottweilers ears under control totally.

    I work as a vet nurse and we use a product called 'Clean Ear Solution' to clean the ears out and then use Panalog ointment or similar to treat the yeast infection itself.
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    Excuse my ignorance, but yeasty ears, obviously means that there is a spore growth in the ear.

    How do you know your dog has this? I dont think it is something ive come across in my dogs, or i hope not and ive not noticed. Does the dog shake his head or is it the smell that alerts you?

    Yes bernie, You will notice they shake their heads and/or scratch at their ears and if you smell their ears, it smells like a rabid cockroach has curled up and died in there

    I always check there ears getting a white cloth and getting it and your little finger right in there, you will see a redish, brownish stain on the cloth if they are harbouring an infection. It is a very painful condition and very common in the large floppy eared breeds (spaniels .Eg) as there ears arnt open to as much air flow which creates a perfect living environment for bugs.
