Hi Everyone, we have a 5 1/2 year old male named Bandit. Absolutely adorable. For the past 3 ears he has had reoccurring ear infections. We have been using SUROLAN for the past 2 1/2 with much success. However, we have tried many other natural products such as coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and for the past year we have been flushing his ears (ever 2 weeks) with TRIZEDTA Aqueous Flush. Having tried all of these methods Bandit still has ear issues that pop up every 3 months or so.
We were told by our insurance company that cockapoos are susceptible to ear infections.

we have 2 other cockapoos in our neighbourhood and we had an opportunity to speak with them over the past 2 weeks, both have the same issue. On owner informed us that the vet prescribed a solution to flush , followed by a powder to absorb any moisture; did not get the name of either product.

the 2nd. family had not only ear infection but their dog was biting/licking between the toes. There vet had them change food and the biting/liking all but disappeared, and the ear infections are fewer in number.

our vet suggested going with Fromms salmon , get rid the any food that had chicken protein.

so for the long text; any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
Mario and Bandit

The following prescription antibiotics benefit pets with bacterial ear infections (otitis) but are not safe unless the eardrum is intact: gentamycin (Otomax and Mometamax), tobramycin, amikacin, neomycin (Posatex Otic Suspension), and polymixin B. (Consult your veterinarian first)
