Dear Deloris,

You might want to take your puppy in to see your veterinarian to find out if the ear debris is caused by mites, allergies, or infection. Treating it it is easier if you know what you are dealing with. In the meantime, you could put olive oil in the ear canal if you know that the ear drum is intact. Your dog will shake the excess oil out, so do it outside or in an area that is easy to clean. I also use Derma-IonX, which is an oral homeopathic product that stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which reduces itching, and inflammation, and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include; digestive enzymes, probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, and fish oil. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response.

I would also suggest you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. For the dietary modifications you might want to try a grain free diet for a while.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
