I have a 4 year old rescued Spoodle who continually gets ear infections with his long floppy ears. Can I dilute or put colloidal silver straight into his ears? If so, how much?

I was plagued for two years with an ear infection that would not go away, it constantly came back even though I was spending lots of money on prescriptions. I live in a small town where there is a lot of hunting and hunting dogs. As you know, many hunting dogs have heavy ears that are constantly being dragged through wet grass while hunting.

That being said a friend told me that her doctor told her to mix 1/2 white vinegar with 1/2 rubbing alcohol and every time I bathed, washed my hair, swam or got my ears wet in any way to fill my ears with the solution, smooch it around and let it drain and dry naturally. TA DA! No more ear infections and that is the same thing they use on their hunting dogs, thought I’d never explain that tidbit didn’t you?

The vinegar kills bacteria in the ear and the alcohol dries the ear out so bacteria cannot grow in the dry environment! I use it on my dogs, cats and me, we all have healthy happy ears! Good luck. I make up a batch of 16 oz in a bottle and put it into small bottle with cone shape ends for easy use, and eye dropper would work as well.
