    Hi guys, thought i'd pick ya brains
    Laalie, our 4 year old vizzie has a problem, 2 nights back, at 4 am she woke up a bit disturbed, shaking her head, ears going ninety to the dozen, off to the vets we went the next day and it appears she has mites and wax in her ears.. she was pretty distraught about it TBH.. we have drops, and cotton wool buds etc to cure the prob, but i just wondered if there was anything else we could do for her in regards this ailment??
    Advise appreciated!

    If you find the drops don't clear the mites you could always try some Thornit. It's brilliant stuff and I know a lot of breeders use it.:)

    Aww poor thing , only one of my bichons has ever had ear trouble , when it first came to us, re occuring ear probs but touch wood, the drops worked eventually and have had no trouble for the last two years. I know it really irritates them doesnt it poor thing, hope it clears soon, and stays away!

    THORNIT- it really works, costs about £9.00 a bottle and is totally brilliant, google it 2 find stockists, as you cant buy it wholesale, but is exactly for what you described is wrong with your dogs ear, and you will never have to go to the vet again!!
