During this time of the year we are seeing increasing number of ear infections due to the humidity and allergies.
At the Lake Veterinary Hospital we believe preventive care is the best tool to stop causes advancing to infection and causing discomfort to your furry friends.
We recommend weekly ear cleaning with a gentle ear cleaner like PAW Gentle Ear Cleaner. Medication can sometimes be necessary.
Tips to prevent ear infections:
- Weekly ear cleaning
- Drying ears after swimming and baths
- Trimming excess hair around ear canals.
Please note that many ear infections are secondary to allergies and the underlying allergy need to be addressed to get a resolution or better management.
