Would you place this mix in your ears? I wouldn’t! If the dog has an infection, it needs antibiotics. Go to the vet. You don’t want to be the cause of them loosing their hearing.

    “Q: Dear Dr. Mike: My Golden Retriever occasionally gets ear infections. I noticed this weekend that his ear was dirty and swollen. I periodically use EPI-OTIC in his ears to keep them clean. I have run out, so is there a home remedy I can use to clean his ears until I can get to the vet? Thanks.

    A: Two solutions for cleaning ears that I think are helpful are:

    Mix white vinegar with water in a 1:1 ration (half water, half white vinegar) The acidity makes it hard for some bacteria to grow and this has an astringent effect. It stings if there is any ulceration of the ear canal, though.

    OR

    Mix 3% hydrogen peroxide 1:1 with warm water. This is less antibacterial but is a little better at aiding in the removal of cerumen from the ears. It is not as likely to cause discomfort if the ear is inflamed.

    There are advantages to the commercial ear washes and they are probably worthwhile to stick with if helpful. But these solutions are OK in a pinch.

    Mike Richards, DVM”
