Dog Yeast Ear Infections: Great OTC Home Remedy

If your dog is scratching their ear, there is a ‘sweet smell from the ear, and black debris in the ear canal, then they likely have a yeast ear infection. Dr Jones shows you his most effective over the counter home remedy.

Clotrimazole, or under the brand name Canesten, is an antifungal – it cost me about $5, and lasts me a year – medication from the veterinarian can be upwards of $50!

So, how much do you give? About 1/4 of an inch of cream per 20 lbs. I will squeeze it directly into their ear, and then rub the base of their ear to spread into the ear canal.

I hope this helps – please let me know in the comments below.

  1. Hi Dr. Jones!
    I have watched this video on the green tea & ACV for dogs ears. My lab/Weimaraner mix gets these infections recurrently. Vet says it’s due to allergies. I use the ear wash you recommend, it works great! Can you please tell me the name brand of the Cucurminoids supplement you recommend for allergies? I had her on Dream Coat for years which helped some, but I can no longer get it. Thanks for all you do!

  2. I am so glad I found this site. My groomer noticed a yeast infection in my mini schnauzer the day before I needed to travel out of state. I called my vet but there were no options for several weeks. I saw your article and purchased the clortrimazole. Can’t wait to see if it helps. Thank you

  3. Dr. Jones:
    As suggested in the video, for the past few days, I have been using OTC Clotrimozole to treat my hound dog’s ear (yeast) infection. It is working great.

  4. Hi, Dr. Jones,
    I have a Chihuahua who has been treated for a deep in the ear canal yeast infection. They gave him antibiotics for two weeks, and they didn’t help at all. Then they gave him steroids, which caused his weight to balloon up to 16 pounds! I started using the clotrimazole, and have been treating him every day for over a week, and it’s helped with the dizziness and head tilting, but it’s not gone yet. Is there anything else that I can do? Please help!
