    ellies ears are getting worse had her to vets and they are no use (need a new vet) its only one ear and if we give it a good rub she loves it i often see her itching (sometimes to the point where she yelps because shes itching too much)...she can itch then shake her head or she will shake her head loads...if i take photos of the good ear and the bad ear would this help? i heard thornit might help?xx

    hi, am not much help to be honest. my dog has bad ears too. he has allergies and they flare and become red sore and sometimes bleed. again vets were usless so i came on here. there are some really good non achololic cleaner available which we use. but if its just one ear i doubt it is the same problem. thornit didnt work for bruno but it is worth a try for your pooch. alot of people use it on here and have brilliant results. hope you get it sorted for her soon.

    What did the vet say and do? People on lab forums will be able to recommend special products but I reckon some ear drops would clean them out looks like its just a bit clogged and bunged up. I use epi otic someone on here raves about quistel I think it is give them a google see what you think. Could try thornit but I wouldn't be hugely optimistic if it's waxy stuff just blocking her ear up.

    Can I ask what she is fed on?

    Petnat Dermacton range do natural products for problem skin and ears.
    that have had really good results, they are all natural and not wildly expensive, so certainly wouldnt do any harm and maybe worth a try.
    They do an ear cleaner and drops, that I think its usually better if you use bother together.

    if you want to check them out.

    Someone of here recently used either the dermacton spray or cream, cant exactly remember which for a dog with problem skin, that I think previously had to use steroids when the skin flared up. I had posted about Dermacton on another thread and they tried it and said it really worked. So I should think the "ear products" would certainly be worth a shot at least.
