How to treat a Shih Tzu Ear Infection?

Q: How do you suggest I treat a Shih Tzu Ear Infection?

The long ears of the Shih Tzu ensure a moist and warm environment which is perfect for causing ear infections from bacteria, yeast, fungus and other parasites. Because of their long ears, Shih Tzus are no strangers to ear infections.

As with many long-eared breeds, when a Shih Tzu gets an ear infection, the ears get smelly, itchy, or gunky, often with a dark discharge. These symptoms are most commonly caused by bacteria, yeast or fungus, but regardless of the parasite, this is a routine affliction which can be solved in days.

You can either take your Shih Tzu to the vet for professional treatment or if you prefer to do it yourself, you can treat it at home quickly, easily and inexpensively. Vet Organics’ product, EcoEars Dog Ear Infection Formula & Cleaner is perfect for this.

EcoEars works quickly and gently and is extremely effective and easy to use.

By formulating EcoEars with a broad spectrum of powerful natural ingredients–with each one targeting specific infections– we have created a product which is effective on the vast majority of dog ear infections. It has been used successfully on mites, yeast infections, and a wide range of bacterial infections. In addition to killing parasites and bacteria, EcoEars lowers the pH in your dog’s ear slightly which makes the ear environment far less susceptible to recurring infections.

When you use EcoEars, all that is required is for you to lie your dog on her side and fill her ear with EcoEars. Massage the ear base 90 seconds to allow the liquid to penetrate and let her shake. You can dry the ear with a facial tissue or cotton balls.

You’ll notice the symptoms begin to improve in 1-2 days and be gone in a few days.(Always continue treatment according to the instructions on the label.) Will it work? It is extremely likely. If it doesn’t, we offer a 100% no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee.
