Kiwi was scratching her ears so I took her to see the vet today...sure enough, she has an infection in each ear. He said allergies are the most common cause for ear infections. She is 3 and hasn't had this since she was a puppy. She had it when she arrived to us from her breeder. I know that some dogs are more prone to this but is there anything I can do to try and prevent it?

Awwww! I am sorry to hear that your baby has an ear infection. My Sassy will be 3 this Friday and she had her first bout with that about 6 weeks ago. What did your vet give you to treat the infection with? Hope she feels better soon.

Awwww I am sorry to hear that, poor Kiwi

I use Oti Soothe 11 twice a week to clean Scooby's ears and this helps to keep them dry and clean inside and they do smell nice too. We bought it at the vet's office.

Chelsey had and ear infection after we brought her home from the breeder as well, mind you I was not aware of it.
Well the vet gave her some medication she was on it for one month normally they prescribe it for two weeks but her ear infection was pretty bad. The vet advised me to just make sure her ears are dry after bath time. I did ask her about the ear drops for keeping the ears clean but she told me is was not required. So far so go... Knock on wood. I hope your puppy feels better soon. (don't forget to treat after you give your puppy the medication.)

He gave Kiwi some Panalog ointment. Her appointment was at 3 yesterday afternoon and she was much better by this morning. Where she hasn't had a problem for a long time he feels it is just allergy related and doesn't require any other treatment after 1 week. I sure hope he's right.

I just posted on another thread about ear infections, something I'm a bit of a reluctant expert on as I have an OES with chronic ear infections. Keeping their ears clean and dry is the best prevention for ear infections. They may be a sign of allergies but if you have gone three years without and are sudenly having one I doubt it's an allergy.

I use Malacetic Otic as a ear cleanser weekly after batrh for Ty and make sure that his inner ear is absolutely totally dry, keeping his ears as dry as possible during bath time. At the first sign of any brown or smelly discharge you want to get to the vet for an antibiotic because left untreated the infection can cause extensive damage and or deafness.
