Itchy Ears

Hi All- I have had my pitbull for a year and he has horrible itchy ears. They bleed and are swollen and hot. I have taken him to the vet but they only give me ointment and want me to do an expensive allergy panel which I can't afford. I have changed his food to a grain free hypo allergenic dog food but nothing seems to help.

What protein are you feeding and does the food have anything in it that comes from other animals? Like if you feed lamb, but the food includes eggs or chicken fat. Poultry is a very common allergy for pittys. Seeing a lot more potato and fish allergies too. I put a tiny bit of bag balm on my pitty's ears when he itches them too much. I also flush his ears daily with zymox.

Pit with itchy ears/allergies

I have a pit bull (Sherman) a rescue that's around 9 years old. He has food and environmental allergies and with that he often has itchy ears, feet. I found an on line allergy panel that tested him for food allergies. From that I was able to get him started on a more natural diet which helped his allergies tremendously. The last time that his ear was infected (around a month ago), I used the prescribed ointment for around a week and then I started to clean his ears with colloidal silver. That seems to be addressing his red, sore ears for now.
In addition, the veterinarian advised me that because/as he gets older, his issues may become more frequent because immune system is less efficient.
I started to look at more natural constituents that could naturally stimulate his immune system. I tried several types of probiotics which were of minimal help but what I found seemed to help more is when I started to supplement colostrum.

I guess you should avoid everything that your dog has an allergy. You can go for a natural option. And make sure to clean its ear from time to time.

What ointment did your vet prescribe? Did you try aloe vera or ice? You also might wanna check its diet first - check the amount of protein youíre feeding him. If nothing works, try connecting with a vet on call - because clearly the ointment your vet prescribed isnít helping. There are a bunch of platforms you can turn to, like greatvet - you can enter your zip code and connect with a vet near you.
