Dylan's ears have recently started to smell like old socks. I can't see much in the way of wax or anything and I've used Clean Aural three times now, but they still smell. Any suggestions?

I took Rosie to the vet when her ears smelled, as I suspected an infection. I was right, but she was also clearly bothered by them and trying to scratch them all the time. How is Dylan?

He had one occasion a week ago when he rubbed them on the floor, but nothing since then or since I used the ear cleaner. But maybe a vet visit might be best.

nice hot topic.. smell ears .... :)

I think I need to clean my dogs ears, I do wipe them out and pluck a few hairs out a couple of times week, but I was going to ask the vets for a recommended ear cleaner..

Anyone recommend a good ear cleaner and where to get it from please?

ok so advocate ear cleaner... ha ha ha .. or not .. you are funny Helen :)

Meant that as Dylan is on advocate its unlikely that he has ear mites if I'm remembering correctly. Didn't intend for you to clean ears with advocate :p

I was told by the dog trainer that smelly ears (she used 'cheesy' to describe) was usually a sign of ear infection.

i love quistle, as you just flood the ear cannal and rub the ears so any deep wax gets loosend off and comes out, so i do it in the evening then the next morning i go over them with a normaly ear cleaner on a cotton ball. if they are realy bad i repeat this for a day or two.

was recomended to me bye someone whos dog has bad ear problems, its the only stuff that helps.

Is that the dry one that Fallon recommended?
Are you thinking of Thornit? That is a powder, it also helps with plucking the hairs from their ears. :) You can order it on the net, I just googled it.

I use Quistel, like Kendal it was recommended to me to :)

Ellie had ear mites even though she'd had advocate when we got her - something to do with the cycle of the ear mite and eggs that had just hatched - it makes my skin crawl just thinking about it! Yuk! :eek: x

Izzy has had several ear infections - she scratches and they smell quite unpleasant when she gets infected, but the vet has never found ear mites. I have a cleaner from the vet 'Logic' and it works brilliantly. I have 'Surolan' ear drops for infections. I do think you should take Dylan to the vet to get checked as infection is common in dogs with these types of ears. A big kiss for Dylan, hope he doesn't mind too much, I have war on my hands as soon as the ear cleaner comes out of the drawer - but I am certain it doesn't hurt!
