Cure A Dogs Ear Yeast Infection Without A Vet

It worked for me.

This article will guide you through the process of curing your dogs' ear yeast infections without seeing a vet. I'll teach you the signs of a yeast infection and treat the symptoms to get your dog back to his old self.


1. The first thing you need to know is detect a dogs' ear yeast infection. The dog should display signs that are easily recognized like, shaking his head repeatedly and scratching his ear/ears excessively. You may also notice a foul kind of sour smell coming from his ears and if you look inside you may see a discharge that looks a little like slime. This indicates that this is probably a yeast infection and not something else.

2. Once you've ascertained that it is a yeast infection you need to begin treatment by gently cleaning your dogs ears. Clean the inside with a soft cloth or tissue. Gently clean out any pus or wax{ear wax in dogs will be brown or black in color}.Try to keep your dog calm to keep from injuring him or causing any more pain.

3. Next you will need to get about 1/16 of a cup of warm water and add an 1/16 of a cup of white vinegar to it. Then take your q-tips and soak them with the prepared solution. Carefully insert these into the ear and wipe the inside of the ear ,allowing the solution to drip down into the ear canal. Next massage the outside of the ear to maneuver the solution to all parts of the ear. Now you can wipe some of the excess solution off with a tissue or just let your dog shake the rest out. Do this twice to three times a day for a week or until your dog stops worrying his ears and the foul smell is gone.

Tips Warnings

You do not need to use all of the 1/8 of a cup of solution. This is just the smallest amount I could measure. The solution must be 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar. It really only takes a couple of q-tips soaked with the solution each time .I throw out the remaining solution and start new each time. Also, for the comfort of your pet the water should be warm. I've also read that if your dog has long hanging ears that they are prone to yeast infections but you can help by trimming excess hair from the inside of their ear to allow more air to circulate

This has worked for my pet and my neighbors but if after 7-14 days your dogs ears are still bothering him then I would take him to the vet.
