|well it's day 4 of Laila's little tea tree oil treatment and her ear is so much better. I flush it out first with Routeen (it has malic and salicylic acid in it) but when it runs out I will try a home made raw apple cider vinegar solution instead - it's supposed to be amazing.
Her ear smells really good from the tea tree oil.
To the person who said olive oil can promote bacterial growth... well it does provide moisture, but I've only noticed a reduction in redness and head shaking, and the scratching has completely stopped! The smell is wonderful. I have found no resources that claimed olive oil was bad for a dog ears... so I'll keep using it but thanks for your warning. Some vets don,t recomment anything other than THEIR products, but it doesn't mean those things are dangerous. My vet disagrees with the vinager solution, she only wants me to use Routeen. Oh well.
