Itchy ears

(Greenbrier, Arkansas, USA)

My Boston Terrier, CoCo, is constantly scratching her ears and under her chin. I was told it may be caused by ear mites that are in her food or allergies. We've tried everything to relieve the itching but haven't found a solution yet. Does anyone know what will help?

Another person here had this problem too. Try boosting the dogs immune system with Immugen. You can get it here: http://www.holisticpetinfo.com/conditions/immune_support.htm. Also, try some fish oil supplements. That will help their skin do what it is supposed to do. Also, you could apply some vinegar to their skin.

Good Luck!

I just commented on another itchy Boston. I recommend Ark Naturals Neem Protect Shampoo. You can get it online or at health food stores. For daily use I recommend Vets Best Hot Spot Spray for some instant relief.

Since it sound more like mites than dry skin/allergies, there are mite meds you can get from the vet. I am into a more natural approach. Holistic Animal Medicines is a great site and they sell an herbal dip to pour over your dog after a bath. My boston had the facial itching for the first year of her life - I believe it was mites. Her muzzle and chest would turn red also. Hope that helps!
