3 Simple Ways to Prevent Dog Ear Infection

14th February, 2017
Is your doggie scratching her ear? Is she shaking her head a lot? Are you noticing an unusual redness around his ear and particular unpleasant odor? Those might be clear signs that your dog is in pain due to an ear infection. If these symptoms seem all too familiar, then your dog probably gets ear infections on a regular basis. There are many natural remedies for dog ear infections, but the best option is to prevent them. Here are some natural ways to prevent ear infections in dogs: 1. Regular Grooming Keep a regular ear cleaning routine for your dog. Make sure you get rid of earwax, as well as debris, twigs and dirt, but don’t over do it! Check your dog’s ear weekly to see if they are dirty, but only clean when it’s necessary. This is probably the easiest and most efficient way to prevent dog ear infections. 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. 3. Natural Cleaners  Natural, organic cleaning solutions can be a great way to fight and prevent and ear infection in dogs. You can use calendula lotion, comfrey or tea tree oil as a cleaner for your dog’s ears. Another option, is to opt for a product like EcoEars, which combines a number of all natural ingredients for ear cleaning. While you can use it as a natural remedy for dog ear infections, it’s also an excellent ear cleaner that will prevent bacteria, yeast and other gunk from building up and causing your best friend any pain.  These are only a few of the most effective natural ways for dog ear infections. They should help to get your doggie back on her feet and happy again!  3 Simple Ways to Prevent Dog Ear Infection обновлено: February 14, 2017 автором: revupticsalik

Thank you for the peace of mind that my dog is not in discomfort anymore, thank you for this product being organic and good for our dog's ears, and seriously thank you for giving us an option to help our old pup with a product we can afford.
Melissa Block Demant
I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!*
Tina Neupauer
EcoEars is a great product! I used it in my Lacey's ears and we haven't had any problems since.

This stuff really works--after spending money at the vet @ $25 a bottle, it's saving me a lot of money.
