    I found that ear treatments made the Izzy's coat greasy, but left bathing a few days after treatment stoped, as the coat only got messy again and didn't want to risk wetting infected areas. I used to use some grooming/cleanser liquid, on kitchen paper, to wipe down, meanwhile.

    Ear drops are pretty mucky aren't they. I would resist washing her ears though until after she has been given the all clear. Yeast infections thrive in damp conditions, so if you get water down her ear canal it may exacerbate the situation.

    Oh and yes, under normal circumstances, I don't think twice weekly bathing is a problem. That is how often I do my Cavaliers.

    I bath as little as possible, Monty even less often than the littlies, because he always looks clean. This works out, usually, as three times a year for Monty and about six for the others, unless on Malaseb treatment, as was Teddy.

    I bathed the littlies yesterday, but just groomed monty and unless you sniff for a shamppoo scent , can't tell who had the baths.

    Mine love yogurt and it seems to help with the smelly ears and runny eyes even.

    For the ears i use levander oil, 1-2 drops in a cotton. I used to have o big problem with the ears but now they smell great! Levander is also antimicrobial and keeps them clean.

    I rarely bath him with shampoo, i only use water. Don't shampoos affect the flea control??
