My pit bull has an ear infection that I treated with a vet prescribed antibiotic about a month ago. That cleared it right up, but then I started seeing the same symptoms occur again a couple weeks later. I have had luck treating my asthma with more natural remedies, so I decided I would try that with my dog. The specialist at my local co-op recommended that I use a garlic mullen compound (herb pharm) on her ear. I have been doing that for a couple days, and there is no longer any wax to clean up, but she is still scratching. After applying the drops tonight, her ears got really red, not swollen or anything, just really red.
I have been researching this all night and have already came to the conclusion that I have to start feeding her a more raw, healthy diet as opposed to the Pedigree kibble I feed her now. However, I am not sure if I am doing the right thing with the Garlic Mullen drops. What should be doing to treat her ears?
The drops have been doing the trick, also I have been giving her sprays of colloidal silver, her ear is almost completely better. I have switched her diet over to something more healthy without grains. Hopefully this problem will not ocme back.
