The guy is wonderful for me in so many ways. ALWAYS wagging his tail, and happy as can be!
I say he helps me because I have chronic depression, and he gives me responsibility, love, and unconditional friendship.
He has had his usual bouts of fleas in the Spring and summer, but I am having a problem with his ears.
Those floppy beautiful things are constantly being flapped due to (I guess) some form of iritation.
I clean his ears with rubbing alcohol and Q tips, and try to keep his ears dry, especially after his bath with a doggy powder, and he STILL has this infernal itch....Is the powder used several times a day, as I only apply it when he seems to be at a critical point...
I have checked his ears, (main problem is the left that he scratches with his hind leg) and except for some slight redness that bulds up over time with his toenails scratching all the time, I dont see any other problems.
No fleas/tics, and he IS on HeartGuard flea medicine
What am I missing ??....HELP!
Sounds like you might need to get a Vet check out the ear problem. Long-eared dogs have a problem in that air cannot get in their ears and keep them dried out. This can cause a yeast infection that's pretty simple to treat, but a medicine has to be prescribed by a Vet. Ask your Vet about MOMETAMAX because it really helped to cure a yeast infection of the ear that our Beagle had, and it wasn't terribly expensive. Good luck!
