How to treat my dog's ear infection and ear fungus? | Solutions from Banixx Pet Care
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?
- Have you noticed a foul odor 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. Various causes are: Ear Fungus, Yeast Infection, Bacterial Infection & Ear Mites.
For Banixx to treat dog ear infections, use a cotton ball moistened with Banixx, not dripping 2-3 times daily. 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 you 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. Banixx needs to make good contact to work.
You, as the dog owner will love Banixx' quick results for your dog's ear infection; your dog, will love the fact that Banixx does not have any smell or odor (that causes alarm in a dog) and has absolutely no pain or discomfort associated with its use!
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. Then, use Banixx as a soothing agent for the ear tissue and to treat the infection caused by the ear mites.

More Information About Dog Ear Infections
Ear infections in dogs are one of the most commonly diagnosed problems at veterinary clinics nationwide. If you suspect an infection might be the cause of your dog's itchy ears, it’s a good idea to check with your veterinarian first to confirm the diagnosis and determine whether the cause is bacterial, fungal, or the result of an ear mite infestation.
Dog ear mites can also cause head shaking and scratching, and a veterinarian can easily and quickly determine whether your dog is suffering from mites or an infection. If mites are the cause, your veterinarian might prescribe a small dose of Ivermectin to eliminate the mites in short order.
Yeast is the most common cause of fungal ear infections in dogs, but bacterial infections, both pathogenic (picked up from an outside source) and non-pathogenic (such as staph, which normally inhabits the body) are also quite common. Chronic fungal ear infections may indicate an underlying issue, such as a food allergy, that needs to be resolved before the infection can be cured, so be sure to consult with your veterinarian to be sure you're on the right track.
Once you know what kind of infection you’re dealing with, the next step is treatment. Unfortunately, many traditional medications for ear infections are awfully unpleasant for man and beast alike. Thankfully, Banixx is a gentle solution that can help resolve this painful condition, without the goop, stink, or sting of other conventional treatments. It is totally odorless, so there's no foreign scent to cause alarm, and it will not sting or burn upon application, so it won't make your dog skittish or difficult to treat. It can be used as often as needed (2-3 times a day is recommended) and is safe around the eyes.
Best of all, once the offending infection is gone, Banixx can be used on a regular basis as a dog ear cleaner to help prevent a reoccurrence. To treat, simply saturate a cotton ball and gently moisten the inside of the ear canal. Make sure that Banixx makes good contact with the infected area, and never use cotton swabs (Q-Tips) since they may damage the delicate workings of a dog's inner ear. Use swabs only to clean the outer ear.
