Black Labrador Retriever with occasional ear problems - part I

Subject:Black Labrador Retriever with occasional ear problems

From: Rick (USA)

Labrador Retriever Name: Nikken

Reader's E-mail - Rick Writes:

We have a black lab with the ear problems on occasion. This time, he has a redish interior ear with some black stuff that has accumulated.

How about mixing in some hydrogen peroxide when clearing up an infected Labrador Retreiver ear? Would the Hydrogen Peroxide help the an infected ear heal better than alcohol or vinegar type of a mix?

All About Labradors Blog Response:

Hello The Sport,

Thanks for writing and visiting All About Labradors. In order for me to try to assist you in your Labrador Retrievers problem, I need to ask you a few questions.

The black stuff that has accumulated in your Labradors ear; is it a dry material that looks like coffee grounds?

Is your Labrador Retriever frequently scratching one or both ears?

Is their a discharge in one or both ears?

Do your Labrador's ears have a strong smell?

Has your Labrador Retriever had a problem with ear infections in the past?

Any other medical conditions with your Labrador Retriever?

What is your Labrador Retriever's name

With all the email questions I receive, I always ask a favor of the person writing. If you have any photos of your Labrador Retriever, that you could email me, I would love to post them to All About Labradors and/or Labrador Retriever Pictures blog. You do not need to send a photo to receive an answer to your question.

If you would like any caption to appear under the photo (Ex: Fido eating the garbage, my trip to the beach, dressed up, etc.) make sure you let me know. Thanks.

Get back to me with the answers to the above questions at your earliest convenience.

Talk to you soon,
Fay

My Lab Rip Tide has all the problems you described. He has had multiple ear tests and been on antibiotics since April. The doctors say its a super resistant strain of fungus. I had two different people test samples from his ears, and it is a bacteria or fungus for sure. It gets a little better when on meds but then comes back full force. He is on all the best food, and I am really at a loss, I am running out of money and hope. Please help us...!!! Thank you!!!Amanda (amandahakimi1@yahoo.com) 386-334-2712
