|I've never heard of Neem oil - but you can use a vinegar solution for chronic yeast infections. Vinegar is acetic acid, which kills yeast. Do a 1 part white vinegar to 9 parts distilled water and put a few drops in the ear 2-3 times per day when there's an active infection. Of course, do this after you clean the ears with an ear cleaning solution. You can put a few drops in each ear once a week or every few days if a dog has chronic yeast infections. Always make sure you dry out your dog's ears after they've had a bath. I've known people to tie back cocker spaniels' ears with a stretchy fabric headband just to get better air exposure.
Chronic ear infections are very often the result of food allergies, so getting those under control will help. Also, there is usually bacteria with the yeast so if the vinegar doesn't help, your dog should see the vet for antibiotics.
