Took Lacey back to the vet today. Last night I noticed a slight smell to her ears, her face was wet, and her breath wasn't smelling right. I have been very lucky with tearstaining so I knew when I saw her face something was up. The vet looked in her ears and they were a little bit red but nothing she was concerned with, but she decided to do a swap in each ear and look under the micro. Turns out that Lacey has another ear infection. This time she gave me Baytil Otic. She also told me she is starting to suspect food allergies. It doesn't help that hubby has been sneaking Lacey all kinds of different foods! So Lacey cannot have anything to eat except her dog food. She is eating the Natural Balance for allegies. She loves it but of course she wants people food. Hubby is out of town but as soon as I see him I am handing him the vet bill! Does anyone else have a little one that has ear infections. I do everything I can to keep them clean...pull the hair out of her ears, clean them with ear cleaner and do everything I can to keep water out of them. I don't like to over clean them or pull the hair out except about every 5 weeks. I have noticed that her left ear has a lot more hair inside then the right one and of course the left ear is the one that I have noticed that is always the worse one. Any help I would love to hear.
