Tinker Belle & Periwinkle Find A Natural Solution For Ear Infections

Ear infections are a common issue that affects so many dogs! Part of why they are so common is because of the shape of their ear canals and another is that dogs are so prone to getting into things! Going for a swim, rolling around in the dirt, sniffing through a field full of pollen, or getting into foods they’re allergic to are all ways they can get an ear infection. Don’t worry, we are here to help pet parents find a natural solution for ear infections!

Meet Tinker Belle and Periwinkle!

Back in February, furmama Shae reached out to us about her two dogs with “yeasty ears“. Periwinkle and Tinker Belle are Shae’s beautiful doggos, an Australian Shepherd, and a Golden Retriever mix. Shae and her family had recently moved to a new home near the beach. Shae noted that the dogs’ ears seemed to have gotten worse since the move. She wondered if something in the new environment could be the cause behind her furkiddos’ ear issues.

Trying A Natural Supplement And Ear Drops

Neither Tinker Belle nor Periwinkle had been diagnosed with a condition that could be an underlying cause like hypothyroidism or parasites. If there were underlying conditions, we would recommend a regimen that also addresses that condition as well. For Periwinkle and Tinker Belle, we recommended that Shae start them on Stimmune and Echo Gold.

Stimmune is a dietary supplement made from a blend of herbs that supports a healthy histamine response, can help the body fight infections, and supports the immune system. This supplement should be administered twice a day, either directly in the mouth or mixed in with their food.

Echo Gold is our all-natural ear drops formula. It contains herbs that help fight infections, and help reduce inflammation and irritation in the ears. Echo Gold can be used as drops for furkiddos fighting an infection or be applied to the ears using a cotton round for regular cleaning.

NHV Pet Experts To The Rescue

A few weeks later, we checked in to see how Tinker Belle and Periwinkle’s ears were doing. Periwinkle’s ears had cleared up with Stimmune and Echo Gold, but Tinker Belle had improvement but was still infected.

We were thrilled to hear that Periwinkle was back to her old self, but we were still concerned about Tinker Belle. Since she was still struggling with her ears, it told us that there might be something else going on. We advised Shae to schedule a free 15-minute video call with one of our pet experts so we could get a better idea of why her ears were still infected.

Shae chatted with one of our in-house veterinarians, Dr. Aline, who gave her some tips on cleaning the ears, suggested doubling the dosage, and discussed Tinker Belle’s diet. Dr. Aline recommended trying an elimination diet to see if the ear infections could be related to food allergies.

Shae followed Dr. Aline’s advice and tried an elimination diet for Tinker Belle. After a few weeks, Shae discovered that Tinker Belle was allergic to chicken and beef! By removing the allergens from her diet and doubling the Stimmune dosage, Tinker Belle’s ears cleared!

Cheers to Shae who didn’t give up and reached out when she knew her pups needed some support! We are so happy we were able to a natural solution for ear infections to help both Periwinkle and Tinker Belle!
