Hi, I have a 10 yr old cocker spaniel, male, non neutered. He has had recurrent ear infections, pseudonomas. He has had all his injections as advised and has been taking the newer form of worming and flea treatment by mouth.
In the past he has had ear flushes under general anaesthetic and any number of antibiotics - none work. I have cleared it myself with colloidal silver and oil of oregano. This time, it changed from black sludge to a sticky yellow exudate - very smelly! I had been trying apple cider vinegar mixed with water and a couple of drops of lavender.
My husband took him to the vet and he has had two courses of treatment - they now want to flush his ear - I no longer have pet insurance - and anyhow - I don't think it will work anyway. I have recently been treating him with a mix of colloidal silver and rose tincture (well, it smells better now and I thought as it is anti inflammatory, anti microbial and mild astringent it would help). The exudate is less smelly and now runny, bit of blood. Ear flap gets swollen and red. I try and clean it twice a day. I can't get it dry though - and his ear is always squishy. I tried witch hazel yesterday to clean his ear and it has made it sore.
I have a homeopathy first aid kit and wondered whether anyone had any suggestions to help my boy? I would be very appreciative - and he, doubly so!
Oh - and i have changed his dog food to one without additives or grains and give him herbal teas - made with cleavers/nettles/violet and today the addition of thyme and a little coconut oil.....
Many thanks and I await eagerly for any suggestions.
