2. Healthy diet

Dogs need to eat healthy to feel good. That means a well-balanced diet! For example, in most dogs, grain-free and gluten-free diets prevent yeast build-up in the ears. This should help prevent an ear infection, but if your dog does get one, probiotics can be a good way to keep the balance of good bacteria in your doggie’s organism. In this case, give your pet some plain unsweetened yogurt and they should be on the way to better balance.
