Dog ear itch relief?

Has anyone had any experience with anti-itch ointments for dogs with ear mites?

I'm currently on a natural food diet for my dog, but he's been itching both ears for the last couple of weeks, and it gets worse when we take him swimming. It looks like dry skin, but there's also a little redness and a little pus.

When we're at home, it never gets too bad - we were concerned at first, but he's been licking it just fine and he's never bitten his ears, but he's been rubbing them a lot.

He's also started going out to run free in the neighborhood, and every time he does he gets a huge scratch on one ear. He's never had this problem before, but with the itchiness it's gotten worse since the summer.

I'm kind of freaked out by this since I can't find any information on the best ways to treat it. Some of the products I've found that say for dogs say it's okay for humans, and even for cats, but when I look at the ingredients they just say "dog", which makes me wonder if they're not safe.

I've heard from one person that they don't work, but another one told me it helped her dog. If I can figure out which one is the better option, I might buy some to try for him, but I was wondering if anyone has experience with the stuff?

My mom used to use Nizoral on our dogs for dandruff and other things. The main ingredient is ketoconazole, which has some side effects including liver toxicity. I've used it on my dogs a couple of times and the side effects were minimal.

If you don't want to use anything at all, a wet washcloth and water is a good thing to keep the itchiness in check.

For my dog I had terrible skin issues, they were always itching with all sorts of fun, like head shakes, scratching his ear, licking his nose and his sides (not his tail). He has been getting these symptoms recently and my vet was stumped, even he said it's not allergies or skin issues.

I bought this stuff to stop the itching for about a week and it was a flop!

We did it to our dog when he had a bad allergic reaction to something and it helped us get rid of that.

I would try it for 2-4 weeks and if it didn't work start over with a different one! But if he's not allergic then just keep using whatever you are using!

I have a little doggie who has very itchy ears and neck when she gets a skin infection. She gets these awful bumps along the sides of her head, and sometimes her neck is swollen.

I put an ointment on her for a couple days that I picked up at the vet and she stopped itching altogether, but then it came back on Sunday and I was wondering if there were any natural ointments you could give that would work on dogs or cats?

I know there are lots of ointments for humans, I just wondered if there was something that could help my dog.

My dog is also itchy all over. We had him checked out at the vet and they said it was allergies.

We use coconut oil on him. He's a pug, he doesn't like oil on his coat. But it is the best thing ever. He was itchy all over the last couple of days and I took him in, and all we did was oil. He's been itchy all day, and he's still itchy.

I can't find a thing that works!

Just put coconut oil on the itchy parts!

There is a lot of anecdotal evidence that coconut oil works wonders for just about any problem.

Coconut oil in small amounts, like a teaspoon on his itchy parts, is OK. But a few people have found that you can get reactions from high amounts. I found this article at petMD: http://www.petmd.com/health/conditions/ ... m-allergies/

In case this one doesn't work for you, some people have mentioned trying a little petroleum jelly (not Vaseline, and definitely not mineral oil), which I've also heard can be helpful. The petroleum jelly is a bit of an outlier, because it's so bad for your skin, but may actually work wonders in the short term for dogs that are having an allergic reaction. I actually used it a couple of times myself when my older dog got really itchy at night and I didn't want to lay down with him. I tried the petroleum jelly and that helped to stop the itching so that he could get some sleep.

It's true, that you shouldn't use Vaseline on your dog's skin. So be careful of that.

Another oil that you could try is olive oil, and maybe if you can find that it can be used for cooking. I know that some people keep their dogs' feet moisturized with a massage with olive oil.

Also, some people have had success using essential oils, like tea tree. Here's some more on that: http://www.vcl.org/health-professionals/ ... e_allergies

Finally, just like with kids, some dogs that are stressed and worried that their feet are itchy might be better off with a massage. Massages can help dogs to calm their bodies down, and it might help them to get better sleep, if they are itchy at night. So do try to relax your dog. And if you notice that he's having trouble sleeping or just seems stressed out, then maybe it's worth the investment.

Hi everyone. We had our vet this week and she told us we should put a coconut oil type product on our cat's feet. The vet said it was safe and said we could use it for a week at
