Morning all

 

We are looking to change our dogs food as he keeps getting ear infections, and a couple of people who have had this in the past saindthey changed food and it all cleared up. 

 

He's a springador but I don't work him, but just wondered what dry food people feed their dogs?

If he has the longer and hairy ears of a spaniel then it's more likely he is getting kack stuck in there, or if he likes to swim it's maybe the water doing it?

As far as food goes, I wouldn't go bounding off to switch food without getting him allergy tested first.

I've been very lucky in that I switched foods to a guy local to me who started his own small dog food company and his stuff is top notch and very fairly priced.

Thanks for peoples replies, 

 

To be honest we are wanting try anything we can as this has been going on for a nearly  a year now and the vets can't seem to get control of it and it's costing us fortune. 

 

As I said someome told us about them changing food and it sorted it out hence me asking. 

 

Thanks again

Just moved mine to CSJ, more than happy with the results so far👍, if you give them a call they will advise on best product as they do a few, hope it helps.

All three of mine are on csj, always complemented on their condition and coat. 
Very reasonably priced too 👍🏻

Have you tried canker powder or a powder called stinky stuff powder? You put it in the dogs ears, little sprinkling now and then.

I used to have to clip the inner ear hair of my spaniel it let the air in and she never had much bother forget and the hair was often matted by wax etc and she was always shaking her head and the inner ear was red and inflamed

Clip the hair and clean the ears. Doesn't take long to do. Lots of ear cleaning stuff out there, ask your vet what they use. We did. Not really an issue now unless he doves into the stinkiest foulest smelling ditch he can find, which on occasion he does. When he forgets he gets hosepiped off that is.
