So, any otc stuff for a canine ear infection?
Are the infections inner ear or on the outer-inner ear (make sense?)? Have you tried trimming her fur around her ears REALLY short? (This cured my dad's cocker mix's ear problems...keeping the fur around her ears shaved.)
One of my old sheps had chronic ear problems and the dermatoligist had me start cleaning them every other day with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and betadine--worked better than any other meds we'd tried.
Polysporin makes an ear/eye drop that isn't bad, but sometimes it can end up just causing the bacteria to be more resistant because it's not that strong.
Another thing that helps--especially if it's yeast is to make your own drops, 1/2 tea tree oil and 1/2 sterile water, apply the drops 3 times a day for 10 days.
Ya know, we really need a pet forum here.
JoAida, when she gets groomed her ear hairs get removed, but it doesn't seem to matter much. There is no discharge that I can see, ears are just red and itchy.

There are Otic washes you can buy OTC & I of my Vets said you can clean out the ears with a vinegar/H2O solution also.
Yeast ears can be a real bugaboo to clear up @ times
Alisha, unfortunately I'm not bf right now, and don't know anyone who is!
Shannon, I'll see if I can get dd's friend's mom to pick her up from school so I don't have to rush.
