My 3 month old Springer Spaniel developed an ear infection and when It cleared I was told that to reduce the risk of your Springer getting an ear infection, when their sleeping, pull their ear back so the air can get into it :)

Ear wash NEW
by: Anonymous

I have two English springers. One had chronic yeast infections the first year we had him. We read about "blue Voodo" and thought we would try it. It has been eight years since we have had a ear problem. Cleans dries and disinfects. We started with weekly cleanings initially but now only need to give it to them monthly. You can find the recipe on the Internet.

Dogs with long overwhelming ears are inclined to ear contaminations. Keep the ears trimmed all around to enhance air course. Utilize an ear wash a few times every week. essay help online. The ear wash made for puppies has drying operators in it which will help a great deal.

Ear Infections NEW
by: Sasha

I suppose that would help somewhat although I don't know how much your dog would enjoy it if you can get the dog to accept it, it may be an option.

Ear infections are a common problem with long eared dogs due to the fact that the ears create a warm, humid pocket, perfect for infections. What I do with my dog is I clean his ears once a week with solution specifically for long eared dogs( Epi-otic is my preferred brand). He used to get quite regular infections as a puppy because we live in a humid, hot environment anyway. Even short eared dogs here often get hotspot and infections. But since I started this we haven't had a problem in about 2 years ( hes turning 4 this year). What I also do and I can recommend it is to keep the hair on the inside of the ear as short as possible ( I trim it myself with an electric shearer). Also try to keep the hair between the ear and neck short ( if you lift the ear at the point and hold it up there's a lovely thick clump of hair on the underside next to the head. ) if you trim that short it allows for a bit better air flow, if your not a hundred percent sure what I mean a groomer could probably help.

I hope this helps
