    Hi everyone,

    Any advice on this massively appreciated.

    We have a 2 year old Romanian rescue, called Margot, who we have had for 9 months.

    When we first adopted her, we had awful trouble finding a diet that didn't give her a dreadful upset stomach and settled on raw food. 90% of the problems we had (runny tummy, gunky eyes, sneezing and coughing) with her went with the change of diet except her ear issues!

    We have worked out that she is allergic to/has an intolerance to chicken and turkey, so doesn't have these and suspect that beef is also not good. Currently she has duck, ox, goat, horse etc.

    At the moment she has a really bad yeast ear infection. I normally clean her ears once/twice a week but stupidly ran out of ear wash and missed one week and now her ears are red, itchy, hot and smelling very yeasty.

    Just wondering if anyone has any advice on what to do or experience they've had in similar situation? How long did it take to go/clear up?

    We are currently using an anti-fungal cream (last two days) and cleaning ears with a natural ear wash.

    Has she seen the vet for her ears? Sometimes when they get too gunky drops can’t get down and they need to be fully cleaned out under anaesthetic.
