dog's ears

mandee1976

I am wondering if any chicks have had any experience with having a dog that experiences dry ears? My dog is a German Shepherd, and with that bread the ears are always up and exposed to the elements of the weather. There are many different creams / oils at the pet store to treat dry ears, but before I buy I would love to have any input. At the moment I am rubbing a little tea tree oil into her ears, and it seems to be helping a bit. Thanks :)

Dog ears

Stop using tea tree oil on your dog, it can be toxic! Vitamin E is a good choice is it is generally rec doe dry noses, too! Also there is something called dermascent that is a topical essential fatty acid you can get on Chewy.

Thank you for the info ! I called my vet about the tea tree oil, and they told me to keep an eye out for any symptoms that they listed, and to bring her in if any symptoms start showing. I asked about Vit E, and they said it would be fine to use.

If possible, I'd recommend making sure that whatever you're putting on the ears is also safe for ingestion. Dogs are often scratching their ears and then biting or licking their paws, so I wouldn't want anything dangerous to end up in their mouths.

Coconut Oil

I have a golden retriever so I have the opposite problem with his ears. They are always moist and he often gets infections. I highly recommend using organic coconut oil for any dryness though. I use coconut oil on my dog's paws all the time and it works great. I like how it is safe and healthy for dogs to ingest so I never have to worry. I am sure coconut oil would work well for dry ears as well, although I wouldn't put it down far into his ear canal because then there could be a risk of infections since you would be creating a moist environment for yeast to breed.
