What Are Home Remedies For Dog Ear Infection?

Ear problems are most probably one of the most common and recurring health complaints to plague our furry companions. Some dogs are more prone to ear infections than others. In this article we’ll take a look at which dogs are more likely to suffer from ear infections, how to spot them and how home remedies for dog ear infection can help your pet.

*      Dogs with longer, floppy ears possess a more fertile breeding ground for bacteria and yeast infections as their ears provide a warmer and moister environment that is well sheltered.

*      Those dogs who are getting a little older tend to suffer more from ear infections as their immune systems tend to get a little more fragile and are less able to fight of the infections.

*      Also suffering are those dogs who spend more time outdoors. This is especially true if they like swimming as even the most vigorous shaking session can’t clear all the water out!

*      Finally, dogs with weakened immune systems will struggle with ear trouble.
