    We've just tried this on our basset.
    We had been using ear cleaner from the vets (epi-otic) but were finding we needed to use it every couple of days and his ears smelt horrible.
    We tried the thornit powder and they are much better, just a quick wipe over and no smelly ears!

    I use Thornit for my 2 OES .I use it as a plucking and soothing powder for when I pluck their hair out of their ears.
    It seems to work well on my 2:)

    Yes, brilliant stuff and not only for canker.

    Poppy is a Bichon so has hairy ears. Came to us at 9 weeks old with very mucky, stinky ears. Two lots of Surolan from the vet did not cure them, but after hearing about Thornit on here I tried it. One dose and a couple of days later they were much cleaner, I just did a second dose about a week later and she hasn't needed any since and she's 20 months old now. Groomer plucks her ears when necessary and they are beautifully clean with no problems.

    i used thornit powder on my labs ears they were waxy and smelly and she kept itching i tried stuff from the vet and other drops but nothing helped after just 3 days of using thornit her ears were cleared she didnt itch all the time and they didnt stink i would definatly reccomend it and it lasts aaages because you only need to use a little bit at a time.

    its great stuff and definatly worth a try
