Here’s Help

After much research and product testing I finally found a combination of things that have kept my dog’s ears healthy and infection free for years:

Allergies have an effect on ear infections, so to keep his allergies in check also:

  • Feed a quality food. Natural Balance Duck and Potato formula has worked great for my dog
  • Give Fish oil supplements
  • Vitamins for skin and coat with digestive enzymes

About Me

My German Shepherd Dakota is 5 years old now, and when he was young he was always scratching and had chronic ear infections.

I spent a lot of money on antibiotics, but he kept getting ear infections. He also shook his head so much and scratched so hard that he even had to have surgery for an ear hematoma.

I didn’t know what was going on with him – was it an infection? Ear mites? Just dirt?

The veterinarian’s answer to everything was more antibiotics. Sure they helped for a while but I didn’t like the expense and worried about their constant use.

So I had him tested for allergies and found he is very allergic to certain foods plus environmental allergens like grass, trees and mold. In his case the allergies showed up in skin and ear problems.

I finally figured out ways to help him without antibiotics. I found foods with limited ingredients and found products that work. While his ears are not always clean –  he IS  a dog after all – he hasn’t had an ear infection since.
