Preventing Ear Infection

Dogs with environmental allergies suffer a lot from the discomfort of constant itching and irritated skin. Did you know that dogs with allergies are also prone to getting ear infections? Ear infections are often a secondary symptom of underlying allergies, especially allergies to dust mites, moulds, pollens, and animal proteins in dog foods.

To prevent ear infections from developing you should properly clean your dog’s ears weekly. If your dog is diagnosed with an ear infection you’ll need to clean them more often during treatment. During treatment, your dog’s ears should be cleaned no more than every other day — if you clean more than that you risk irritating their ears, breaking down that delicate skin, and over-wetting the ear canal.
