Question: Yeast infection treatment left my dog’s fur around her neck and ears greasy and sticky! How do I fix it?
We applied Tri-Otic to her ears, the white creamy stuff them rubbed it into her ears, like the vet told us to. Now her yeast infection is resolved, but as a pomeranian the fur around her ears, neck, and head is all greasy. Sticky, clumpy, and wet looking. How do I get it off without using something too harsh? Anybody have experience with this?

Put a tiny Dawn dish washing liquid on a wet washcloth and gently rub on areas with greasy fur. Then wet a non-soapy part of the washcloth and wipe away the soap on the fur. It must be Dawn brand…it’s great at getting rid of grease! Just don’t wash your whole dog in it otherwise it will really dry out her skin!

    You can get that out by applying corn starch to it – just make sure your dog isn’t allergic to corn, or you’ll have ear irritation again.

    I would recommend Dogosuds peppermint/tea tree shampoo. It is all natural and organic so it is very gentle. It also kills yeast on the outside of your dog so if there’s anything left, it will be killed.
