Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

My sweet 1 1/2 year old girl has been itching her ears several times a day for about 4 months. Two different vets have looked in them and said all looks normal, although the last one said, about a month ago, she was starting to get a small wound in one of them from the frantic itching.  She is on a raw diet, and on the advice of the holistic vet, I took her completely off chicken for several weeks, in case of an allergy.  That did not seem to help at all.  I wipe her ears out (almost) daily with an organic anti-itch/hot spot spray saturated on a cotton pad ... it's still going on! Otherwise, she is perfectly healthy and happy.  Any suggestionsItchy ears Img_1610

Gotcha covered Jimmy....Gina, what exactly are you feeding her? I am not going to be much help as well, but it maybe something other than chicken she is allergic to. Has your vet done any tests to see if she has certain allergies?

Have your vet check into Scabies. They cause excessively itchy ears and are extremely hard to diagnose. we wound up treating my cats just in case because they couldn't see anything despite multiple exams and they wanted to be sure.

"Being the parent of a special-needs pet means living your life constantly poised on the edge of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you become a fierce defender of the ways in which your little one is perfectly ordinary — all the things he or she can do that are just like what everybody else does. And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

Thanks for the replies -- We haven't done any allergy testing yet ... she gets a varied diet: lots of beef, chicken, pork, some lamb and fish, mixed in with some veggies, occasional fruit ... bone broth ... I don't even know where we would start! The good news is that it seems better! I'll take her to the vet if she's still itching next week.
