Redness and slight pink/blood in ears
Our shipoo pup had some pink fluid in his ears and they are a bit red inside. I mentioned that I thought his ears smelled bad so we think he might have an infection. Mom wants to put baby oil in his ears to see if that relieves it. We are worried because Misty also had ear problems all her life and we can't afford to spend lots of money on vet bills. We are still paying for Misty's and while our vet is reasonably priced we want to be proactive and prevent issues so they don't escalate to the point that we need to go to the vet. Misty had recurring ear infections/irritations because she kept getting table scraps. Well these dogs get lots of table scraps all day long and it took many repeated tries before mom finally accepted that Misty simply couldn't have human food and now its happening again with the puppies and its gonna be hard to convince her to stop.
Will baby oil sooth the ear or make it worse? Would daily cleaning of his ear help prevent this? Anyone with dogs that have floppy ears have this problem? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
