First of all, I thought animax was good. it is lame compared to Tresaderm. Tresaderm, even with the nastiest yeast ear infection, 2-3 treatments (usually it's 2x/day), it's gone. it's AWESOME. keep it in the fridge, you only need 2-3 drops. no joke. I can't remember if it's only for yeast or both yeast and bacterial ear infections. usually they want you to use it for 7-10 days. I have my own regime. 3 days 2x/day, then 1 drop for 3 days, then I check it. it also has a steroid in it that soothes the inflamed ear canal.
ok, so my 1/2 hav, has uber hairy ears, since birth. even the vet said is daymn, those are some hairy ears.
it doesn't hurt, most likely if it does your pup has an ear infection. I had his ears tweezed when he was fixed, so yes, you can keep up with it after that.
before he was fixed, I actually pulled a lot of hair out just with my two fingers. just give a quick tug.
Now I tweeze, I check the ears first, to see if there is anything, but usually in two weeks, there is hair to pluck. I kind of like it, the pup hates it though. but like all of the grooming it's necessary to keep up the good looks.
Now that his ears are clear, I don't get ear infections. only if after a bath, I've gotten water in an ear.
