Minnie had some ear problems in her ear. The earflap was swollen due to blood in it.
As Alfie has had the same earlier and I took him to to vet and it did not really help, I just let Minnie’s ear heal on it’s own. Alfie has antibiotic for his swollen earflap and it did not help. It healed about two weeks after the end of antibiotics.
Minnie’s ear healed in the same time but without antibiotics.
You can see her ear in this photo. See the red marked section.
Alfie had a bad infection in his ears and had drops and cortisone for it.
I noticed when cleaning his ears that 100% cotton is much better than cotton pads. Cotton pads are 60% cotton + 20% polyester microfibre + 20% polyester and the actually do irritate his ears. When I started to clean his ears with 100% cotton, they got better. But of course it did not take away the infection.
For now on the 100% is what I will be using for my dogs and myself. Natural rules.
Next week Alfie will have a check up by the vet.
