Sharky is one happy boy!
Besides the fact that he knows that Santa Claus is coming and will bring him lots of delicious treats...
Nope, He is happy because we've got a crazy secret to share with you.
Sharky suffers from chronic stinky ear infections that we have the hardest time treating.
I clean his ears everyday ~ sometimes more then once.
We've used the vet issued ear antibiotics, ear wash, vinegar..
I keep his ears trimmed short to allow air into them...
you name it and we've tried it
nothing has cleared them up.
Last week Paul found an article on how to naturally treat Golden Retriever ear problems
and you will not believe what it is...
Natural Cures For Golden Retriever Ear Problems
Honey: Not only is honey now being used in hospitals to treat wounds in humans, it's also being used on dogs, cats and even rabbits. Mix up 3 tablespoons of honey with 9 tablespoons of warm distilled water. Stir until the honey dissolves then using a drinking straw, dribble the honey into your Golden Retriever's ear. Honey is wonderful for yeast and bacterial infections, as it kills them. It's also excellent for mites and fleas, as it kills the existing insects as well as their eggs. For a yeast or bacterial infection, use every day for one to two weeks. For mites or fleas, use every day for a week, followed by three times a week for the next three weeks. Mites and fleas can have up to a 28 day gestation period, so you want to make sure you kill all the eggs as well as the adults.
We have treated Sharky's ears with the honey solution for 5 days now and there is already a 80% difference.
The redness, swelling and stinky seeping are gone.
We just can't believe it!
I hope this information helps any of you who might be struggling with the same problems.
