Why is it so difficult and expensive to fix my dogs ear infections?
Your dogs ear infections are due to a number of reasons but it requires specific treatment plans and a lot of attention to detail to fix.
Your dog is starting to show all the signs of an ear infection, and your dreading the fact that not only are going to have to do all the work, but you’re also going to have to foot the bill for the treatment.
As many dog owners will tell you, we’ve all been there.
Each time you hear the dog whine, scratch his ears, or give it a little shake of the head, you can just see the dollar signs with each movement.
Certain dogs are just prone to ear infections - especially dogs with floppy ears like Basset Hounds, Cocker Spaniels and Golden Retrievers. In fact, almost 20 percent of dogs all encounter some sort of ear disease at one point in their lives. Suffice it to say, it happens.

The first bit of advice I can give you about your dogs ear infections is to do everything you can to PREVENT them to begin with.

If, however, your dog is beyond just the cleaning and maintenance phase of an ear infection, you need to visit a vet as soon as possible.
Yes, it’s painful for the dog, but it’s also important to jump on it immediately because you’ll want to minimize the risk of the infection traveling to the middle or inner ear. If that happens, that’s when the situation becomes really serious and even more expensive to treat.
How are dog ear infections treated?
The vet will assess the situation and thoroughly clean your dog’s ears using a specific medicated ear cleaner depending on the infection. At that point, your vet may also require a prescription for another ear cleanser or a topical medication which you will have to apply. In really bad cases, oral medication may also be necessary too.
While most cases will probably be resolved within 1- 2 weeks, it is really important that you follow your vets instructions extremely carefully. Yes, that also includes going back to the vets office if necessary!
If you don’t follow the directions appropriately, or if you stop treatment because you believe your dog is getting better, then the infection is guaranteed to come back.
This is why it’s so expensive and difficult to treat your dog’s ear infections because the plan is very precise and it requires constant vigilance from both your and your vet!
