    Thanks for the advice. The 'Thornit' powder seems good if it prevents ear mites I might try this. Where do they get ear mites from? They don't mix with many other dogs only on walks etc. The dirt has come back today after me cleaning it out yesterday so its off to the vets tomorrow. It seems to be bothering her a little more too. Hope Lois doesn't get it. What a nightmare

    Hope it's nothing nasty. We use Cleanaural for maintenance and it does a good job. Kizzy had an ear infection when we got her, but since it cleared up (with drops from the vet) and we've been cleaning with Cleanaural - no further problems... (touch wood!)

    Thornit is great for clearing ear mites and for weekly ear maintenance, but you must remember to use only the smallest pinch of powder.

    Vets don't approve of 'canker powders' and I understand that the majority are not usually effective, but Thornit really does work.

    You can buy it quickly & easily from eBay

    Does sound like a visit to the Vet is prime decision. If you do use a liquid for maintenance , as someone stated, let them shake those ears. Last year, during shaking, Chickabee actually threw out a piece of kibble -and it wasn't even her kibble!

    FYI, my dogs have had yeast infections, never mites. The only dogs I've known with mites are puppy mill rescues. Not saying yours don't have it, but I'd be more likely to place my bet on Yeast. And FYI, my dogs have never passed that onto one another.

    Shippers, Agree with Lani as to possibility of yeast infection. Personally I would get vet's opinion. Our golden develops yeast infections in her ears during Springtime. She is probably allergic to pollen. Vet gives us ointment and each Spring I put her on benadryl for the allergies and the infection goes away.
