I have a pug that is roughly 5 years old. When we first got her she didn't have any of problems, but then this past February we got awaken by her, she had an inner ear infection. What we don't get is we give her baths at least once a month and everytime we give her a bath we always clean her ears out very throroughly. And then it seems like every two to three months she starts yelping and the last time she did we took her to the vet and they gave us the meds and ear stuff. But it just seems like our dog, she just keeps getting ear infections. I am just curious if anyone else has this problem and if there is a way to make it stop?? Look forward to hearing from yall.
Some pugs have very narrow ear canals which makes them more prone to infections. You can help by cleaning their ears regularly with a proper ear cleaner (NEVER with water). If they also tend to be itchy or lick their paws a lot they could have yeast issues or allergies and changing diet to a grain free version would be well worth a try.
