Pork mince and potatoes cleared up my whv boy's ears, we'd tried just about every other costly scheme the vet could think of before.

I have a smooth coat Vizsla, not a wire. Last year we spent roughly around $2,700 on figuring out her ear problems. She finally had myringotomy surgery on her ear. Had to stay on a list I prescription meds before, and after surgery for 6 weeks. Her ears have to be cleaned twice a week, with hb101 for the rest of her life. I can only get the medical grade hb101 from a Veterinary dermatologist. She will always be at risk for bacterial infections in that a ear, but it's been infection free for the last 10 months.
She had developed a rare gram staph negative bacteria, and had fluid in the middle ear. Without Flushing the middle ear, and testing for the bacteria in it. We were never going to fully clear that the infection.

On a side note.
If the infection goes on to long, the bone surrounding the middle ear can also become infected. We were very lucky, and that was not the case with June. If it had, she may have been on medicine for a year, or the rest of her life.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
