I put the mixture in a small shampoo bottle, then use cutips or cotton balls. this should give relief even if you still go to vet.AsianRedneck said:yeah the red stuff smells he shakes and scratches his head like crazy...How do I apply the alcohol and vineger pitmommy?
half water and half apple cider vinegar solution, apply that with a rag 3 x's a dayChico.Heidi said:Sorry to hijack the thread but does anybody know what to use on a yeasty skin rash on a belly? My dog gets this area on her belly that smells yeasty and is damp and reddish brown. I used the alcohol/vinegar mix and she practically jumped through the roof. I felt horrible. Usually she likes it when I use a damp washcloth on her belly so I think the mixture burned her skin. Can I use ear wash on it?
I have too agree about the home recipes! The Oticlean I have used and it works well but I've never heared of the monostat7! I don't see why it wouldn't work or it being harmful. Do have it taken care of a.s.a.p. shaking of the head (making the ears flap against the head) alot can cause damage to the ears. Hematoma's (pockets of blood between the tissues and cartilage), which is very painful. Good luck!ambull040769 said:Never mind all the home recipies you could hurt your dogs ears, get some oticlean and clean his ears out good with that and then put some (monostat7) just like a woman uses for a yeast infection in his ears and if it is a yeast infection it should start to clear up with in a couple of days, clean ears once a day and apply monostat7 once a day if you dont see any improvement withen 4 or 5 days then he need to go to the vet because it is a bacteria infection and your vet will have to determine what kind of bacteria it is and prescribe the right medication for that infection! But first try what I said with the ear cleaner and monostat7 it will save you vet bills if it is yeast and if its not he has to go to the vet nothing else will cure a bacteria infection but the medication the vet has and if you dont treat it, it will not go away!
