Most cured ear infections in animals do not normally return. Some dogs are more susceptible to ear infections than others but it is not discussed whether this is associated with certain breeds of dogs or not.

Ear infections can occur in any breed or dog or cat. Ear infections can normally be helped by using a preventative solution once or twice per week. Our PetsBestRx Healing and Protection Spray can be used as an ear infection preventative solution. This is applied by lightly spraying on a Q-Tip or Cotton Swap and cleaning the ear flap and a little inside of the ear making sure not to go to deep.

You can also try to prevent ear infections by making sure that your pet’s ears stay dry. Sometimes this will require a drying agent and sometimes it will not, it can depend on the breed of dog. You can use a drying agent after bathing or swimming with your pet. It is important to keep the dog’s ear canal dry because it can cause an infection just like swimmer’s ear in humans. A primary cause of ear infections can also be pet allergies.

You want to start treatment for pet allergies as soon as your pet starts scratching or itching. Having ear mites present in the ear can also cause a bacterial infection to set in. The long acting PetsBestRx Healing and Protection Spray would be used to kill bacterial infections in the ear and help with the ear mite treatment along with the natural PetsBestRx Mitactin Spray.

Ear infection is a very common issue in all animals including pets and farm animals. Pets, especially pets with large and fluffy ears are more susceptible to ear infections as compared to other animals. Infection of the ear usually involves the outer portion and results in an inflammation of the ear called otitis.

The cause of infection is either internal or external. In case some cases infection may develop due to some internal problem in the ear. Different parasites and bacterial or fugal species are also involved in infection of ears.

A secondary bacterial infection and sepsis may also develop due to some injury or wound in the ear. In small animals like dogs, cats and sheep myiasis may also occur due to improper management. The problem can be diagnosed and differentiated through its clinical signs and different laboratory test. Treatment varies with specie, condition and type of condition.
