Smelly dog ears? Yuck. She is scratching a little at them and they hurt her. They smell gawd-awful. I made an appointment for the vet, but it's not for a couple of days. I've been cleaning them very gently with a small amount of peroxide and cotton balls, but was wondering if you dog experts had any other ideas. One idea on the internet said to crush a garlic clove and leave it in olive oil overnight. Put a couple drops of oil in the ears. This would smother mites, if that were the culprit. I asked the vet's office and they said NO. The idea makes sense to me, because of the antiseptic properties of the garlic, but if they vet was emphatic, I'm not doing it. Another thing that was mentioned online was yeast. Can I give the dog plain yogurt? Anyone had this problem in past and have a good cure for her?
