What's the Natural Solution?

There are quite a few natural options that we can use, ranging from apple cider vinegar and even aloe vera juice. One of the best homemade natural ear cleaning remedies is to take 2 cups brewed green tea cooled. Remove the tea bag 2 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar and 5 drops of calendula tincture put them all together and mix it. Then use a syringe to put 1-3 mils into your pet's vertical ear canal. Massage the base of the ear. You want to hear the liquid squishing around and then let  your pet shake their head and wipe out any excess discharge with a soft cloth or cotton balls. Continue that until there's no waxy debris left.

2. Trim Their Nails 

Highly recommend you to trim your dog's nails short. Self-trauma can be caused by scratching an itchy ear and It can make the problem even worse. Keeping your dog's nails short can reduce the chance of ear skin damage.

3. Give a Suitable Healing Cone

Ear infections are itchy and it's a dog's natural urge to scratch their ears. Scratching relieves the itching right away, but it gets worse over time. Giving a cone will protect your dog’s ears from injury through scratching or rubbing.

4. Vet visit

Lastly, make sure you're doing all you can to figure out why the ear infection happened in the first place or else you'll fall into the vicious cycle of the ear infection. Don't forget that severe infections cannot be treated at home. These require prescription medications to treat the infection. Remember that there are other causes of ear infections, such as mites or foreign objects stuck in the ear, that do not resolve with natural remedies at home. A visit to the veterinarian is always necessary in these cases.
