Q: What are dog ear infections and what do I need to know about them?
A: Dog ear infections are a condition where a foreign body colonizes a dog’s ear.
Dog ears are naturally prone to infections because of the warm, humid environment in the ear. For many pet owners dog ear infections are a routine occurrence. While short-eared dogs are less prone to ear infections than long-eared dogs, they can appear in any dog.
The most common types of dog ear infections come from yeast, bacteria, ear mites, and fungus. Some feed off of material in the canal while others feed from the blood of the host dog.
Whether your dog has an ear mite infection picked up from another dog or cat, or a yeast infection, dog ear infections are not dangerous unless they are left untreated. Symptoms of dog ear infections including bad smell, itchy ears and gunky discharge are often the first signs that your dog has an ear infection and are a signal that your dog may be experiencing discomfort.
In considering treatment for a dogs ear infection, veterinarians have hundreds of choices of treatments (and often choose 2-3 at a time) including pharmaceuticals, cleaning agents/detergents, steroids and antibiotics. If bacterial, they usually try to first identify the organism or else use a wide-spectrum antibiotic. If tests show the ear infection is fungal or mite related, fungicides and insecticides are used. If a yeast infection is indicated, other products are also available. Yet many veterinarians treat dog ear infections with oral antibiotics along with steroids and cleaning agents and detergents, which pet owners often complain is only a temporary fix.
Today’s dog owners prefer to treat their dog’s ear infections using natural options or at least products without antibiotics and steroids.
