How to treat a dog ear infection and ear fungus?
A dog ear infection is one of the most commonly diagnosed problems treated at veterinary clinics.
- Does your dog have itchy ears?
- Does he scratch and shake his head?
- Does your dog have smelly ears or heat around the ears?
If you encounter any of these symptoms, your dog may be suffering from an irritating dog ear infection that can be treated using Banixx. Common causes are: Ear Fungus, EarYeast Infection, a Bacterial Infection or Ear Mites.
SimpleTreatment for your dog's ear infection and ear fungus
To treat dog ear infections use a cotton ball moistened with Banixx, not dripping, 2-3 times daily. Make sure to coat the inside of the ear liberally with Banixx. Results should be seen in a couple of days. Banixx can also be used as a regular dog ear cleaner for dogs prone to ear infections. If your dog is fearful, due to the pain, you may begin with a dry cottonball and gradually moisten it. As you progress, be sure that the ear is wet with Banixx. Surprisingly, many dogs are not fearful if you spray Banixx directly into their ear. If you adopt this method, please be sure to "close" off the ear using the dog's ear flap and massage it gently around in the ear so that your dog does not shake its head and lose the Banixx. This will ensure a good coating of Banixx throughout the inside of the ear. Banixx needs to make good contact with the ear tissue to work.
Yeast is the most common cause of fungal ear infections in dogs, but bacterial infections, both pathogenic (picked up from outside) and non-pathogenic (such as staph) are also quite common. Ear mites can also cause head shaking and scratching, and a veterinarian can quickly determine if dog ear mites are the cause, and may prescribe a small dose of Ivermectin to eliminate the mites in short order. Use Banixx as a soothing agent for the ear tissue and to treat the infection caused by the ear mites.
