Hoping someone can help with this. As you know, Ginger is our older gal and she is a long-eared, floppy-eared Beagle. As with a lot of long eared dogs, she has had chronic ear infections. Black smelly yeast infections. I clean what I can with cotton swobs, and use Q-tips for around the outer ear canal (never going in beyond the initial folds). I have had her to the vet several times and they always give us a wash (mostly peroxide) and an ointment to put in her ears and work in. They seem to help, but never really ever goes totally away. The problem is exacerbated by Bob's incessant licking of her ears. This makes them wet and humid with no air circulation - a perfect environment for continued yeast growth. Any suggestions or best petmeds that I could order???
