Dog Ear Infection-How To Stop It In Weeks For Life

Dog Ear Infection

Nothing is more frustrating than a dog ear infection that just won’t seem to go away. Right when it appears the issue has been tackled, it is not uncommon to see the problem show back up in one or both ears all over again.

With conventional knowledge asserting that finding the root cause of ear infections in dogs as nearly impossible, the typical course of action is to blame an unidentified allergy and prescribe antibiotics. Unfortunately, what most do not understand is that merely treating the symptoms of an ear infection will do both a dog and its owner no good.

Dog Ear Infection From Stressed Immune System

Chronic allergic otitis externa in a dog with atopic dermatitis

At its simplest, Otitis Externa or chronic dog ear infection is a sign that a canine’s system is breaking downfrom the inside out. The immune system has become battered and frayed and it is likely there are other things off balance somewhere in the body as well.

The question is: what could so harshly upset the balance of a dog’s physiology? To answer this, it is important for pet owners to first understand that ninety percent of disease is diet related. Considering the vast majority of dogs subsist on a commercial dog food diet these days, pet owners on the hunt for a permanent solution to dog ear infections would do good to take a serious look at what their dogs are ingesting each day.

According to Dr. Tom Lonsdale BVet Med, MRCVS,

“Junk dog food is laden with colorants, preservatives, humectants and a raft of other strange chemical additives-none of with any nutritive value and all toxic to varying degrees… “

Food Additives Cause Of Dog Ear Infection Symptoms?

For millions of years, the canine species was able to develop and thrive without additives, preservatives, stabilizers or any of other chemicals that make up commercial dog food. With a daily dose of these toxic components that can do nothing more than build up in sensitive inner vital organs, it is no wonder systemic allergies emerge with a vengeance in today’s canine.

Trying to rid the body of the chemicals nonstop can do nothing more than eventually wear out an immune system until it can no longer heal itself. This is what allows infections to recur. Along with dog ear infection problems, dog owners often become acquainted with hot spots, skin rashes and a laundry list of other canine health issues.

The Answer To Getting Rid Of Dog Ear Infections

The lasting solution to banishing a dog ear infection permanently requires ridding a canine’s system of toxic chemicals once and for all. How to treat dog ear infection can be done by switching your dog to a simple, all natural diet of raw meat and bone. With no additives, preservatives or other chemicals to wear down the immune system, a dog’s physiology can be restored to perfect balance. Unlike the cooked, highly processed mush and kibble that comes in cans or bags, the healing nutrients in raw meat, bone and offal are whole, intact and in the form a canine’s physiology recognizes.

    I have a 11 week old puppy and it has a really bad ear infection I don’t know what’s a good raw diet for a puppy. Any recommendations on what I should give her to eat to stop us goin to the vet very two weeks and stop the ear infection for good?

  4. Hi, sorry to hear about your puppies ear infection. Right, start feeding chicken necks, chicken pieces, chunks of tripe (the raw green stuff) find it online and thats a good start. Feed pieces larger than can be swallowed so your puppy has to chew on it and break it down. Also try out some crushed or fine grated vegetable like carrot for a small addition of vegetable matter-tryout what you think your puppy may like, they have individual tastes like us!

    Feed 3/4 meals a day until the puppy is 4 months and then go to 2 meals up to 12 months when it becomes one large meal a day. Feed around 5 to 10% of your puppies weight per day split into the 3/4 meals and go by how your puppy looks and feels for size (generally they have self control over how much they want).

    Try out a new food source each week ie lamb neck, pork belly, turkey breast etc. to eventually settle on 4/5 choices.
    Keep the food RAW and with the bone in. If it’s a toy dog you may need to smash the food a bit with a steak tenderiser but if it can cope on its own then let it!

    This is the basics and remember raw food also acts as medicine and will heal the ear infection quickly. To know a whole lot more just get my book which contains all you want to know about feeding a raw food diet.

    Let me know if you need further help, Dan.
