 Dog Ear Infections

I have a Labrador Retriever (10 years old) who has had problems with his ears.

If I rub his left ear I can hear a squishy sound. Which in the past has indicated something is going on there. This is such a problem for him that we rarely let him go swiming because of the ear infection issue.

I have been to the vets many times on this. I cleaned his ears yesterday by putting the clening liguid in his ears and wiping the excess out with a cotton balls and swabs.

He had to be put under for something else a couple years ago, and they deep cleaned his ears then and that worked great.

Short of that has anyone got any experience with any ear cleaner that dries the ear up better, or a differnt technique?

A woman on our breeder's mailing list had a bulldog with chronic ear problems and she said an ear rinse called "Epi-Otic" cleared it right up. We had a miniature poodle we used it on, too, and it seemed to work well.

My Chesapeake Bay Retriever used to get the same thing.

Luckily she would let me do nearly anything to her. I would fix it with a large eye dropper full of Hydrogen Peroxide, shoot it down her ear then wait a second and tip her head over. Just be sure to hold an old towel or something to her ear to catch it.

Best of luck.

Hydrogen Peroxide generally does a good job. It works on people, too. It generates oxygen when it contacts wax and tissue products and I think that the gas generated will help break up any trapped fluid. It will also treat any infection sites. For dogs and humans, the ear is quite sensitive to temperature, so it is best to warm the H202 to lukewarm before squirting it in there.

Well he has had his first dose of hydrogen Peroxide. His ear is slightly less squishy.

He did not mind it a bit.

What would be a reasonable repeat cycle?

I have a friend & customer who is a vetrinarian by trade. He is the one who tipped me off to doing it.

When I asked him often I should do it, he said twice a day as required was fine for no more than a week straight, after that it may cause some irritation.

The key is to keep the solution in the ear for 30 seconds if possible.

Best of luck.

Thanks Murf,

KoKo thanks you for this info! That seems to match the drill I have sued when I was using the stuff from the vet.

Thanks,

Dennis

A word of caution here though.

If KoKo is a CHOCOLATE lab you will need to be carefull about getting the hydrogen peroxide on her fur.

Otherwise she will look like a photo negative of a Dalmation the next time she gets wet. Believe me.

Best of luck.

The 3% solution of medical hydrogen peroxide is not nearly as strong as the peroxide used to bleach hair and I have not known the 3% stuff to be a problem. I used to manufacture and bottle hydrogen peroxide for disinfecting contact lenses.

I believe that the hair type of peroxide runs up at about 15% concentration. In industrial plants I have used hydrogen peroxide up in the 35% range. Certainly the higher concentrations require considerable caution.

The main concern with the 3% normal medical H202 is to keep it out of the eyes.

AC5ZO,

Thanks for the helpful information.

It does seem that KoKO is exhibiting some of the side effects that Murf mentioned nonetheless.

Please see Pix number 10 in my Album ;>(.
