    Default The ear stuff......

    I have mis-placed my recipe for the purple ear stuff for my dogs.......I made up a big batch when I got the ingredients a few years ago. I am running out and sure wish I had the recipe....

    Thanks to all who replied by PM or on the other thread. I made up a triple mix of this and have been using it for the last couple of years. Haven't had a problem with any of my dogs and their ears all are clean and HEALTHY..........Thanks again

    Seems to me like this recipe should be a sticky perhaps?

    1 bottle of rubbing alcohol or witch hazel
    16 Drops Gentian Violet
    3 Tablespoons Pharma Grade Boric Acid

    If your dogs ears are always gunky try a food with very limited carbohydrate or go grain-free

    Pharmacy. Both the boric acid and gentian violet last a long time, especially the gentian violet.

    Sundown49,
    Nothing against "thepurble stuff" but you can get rid of ear issues with a change of diet to NO grains especially wheat, corn, & rice. Most grain free food work well to eleminate the problem. JMO.

    I think it depends on what the ear issues are. I'd clean ears with something.

    Been on grain free for 4 years and spent over $1000 on ear surgeries this year.
    All success belongs to the dog, all failure to the trainer.
