|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

So for the second time shadow has an ear infection/mites, you know the brown buildup in one of his ears. I've made a habit ever since the first time to routinely smell around his ears, and if it isn't fresh (neutral husky), I start looking. How often if at all do yours get ear issues?
Also, he knows the cleaning bottle and hides and if I do catch him he turns upside down so I can't get to his ears.. too smart

We've had Ami a little over a year and never anything but pretty pink neutral ears. But, if its mites you're dealing with, I use revolution for heartworm and fleas...it also protects against a few kinds of mites...

Try colloidal silver, it's brilliant stuff. Dogs can build up an immunity to antibiotics and vet treatments lose their efficacy over time.

Diz has issues off and on. It's usually due to either a food reaction, or getting water in his ears. In the summer he really likes to play in the water, so he'd get water in there and not be able to shake it all out so it would get smelly and gross. His left ear always seems worse, and I noticed that he sleeps a lot on his left side, so it just doesn't get enough air. I used this stuff called "vet's best" that I got from amazon and it is natural with clove oil in it. I use it once or twice with a bunch of cotton balls, and it normally clears things up after just one day. It works really well, after the vet's best, I would take a couple alcohol wipes (got those at the pharmacy) and use them to get the last of the medicine and gunk out, and alcohol is drying so it helps kill bacteria as it evaporates the moisture in the ears. I might have to try the colloidal silver, that is a great idea as well!
