Pet Ear Infections
Does your dog or cat have ear Infections? Do you spend time and money at the vet’s office trying to soothe your beloved pet, only to find another infection appears over time? If so, you may want to try some more natural approaches to prevent and treat your pet’s ear infections.
Dogs and cats have an incredible sense of hearing. To protect your hearing and prevent damage to the eardrum, your ear canals are L-shaped. So The problem with this design is that it allows the ears to trap parasites, moisture, dirt, and earwax, and any of these can lead to ear infections. Up to 80 percent of ear problems in dogs are associated with allergies, and ear plugs are often the cause of infections in cats.
The traditional treatment for ear infections consists of giving antibiotics,So fungicides,
or other medications. The problem with this approach is that the medications disrupt
the normal chemistry within the ear and can possibly turn a simple infection into a
long-term problem. So It makes more sense to treat underlying allergies and strengthen
your immune system so it can fight bacteria and other germs BEFORE they cause an infection.

the use of medications.
