Hello Everyone! Sorry we have been gone for SO long. Kaluhas daddy and I got married. And Kaluhas mommy has been having some serious health problems. Kaluha on the other hand is doing well. She is a wonderful golden!!! I just had some questions that I figured if anyone this forum would be the best to answer them!
Ear infections: Kaluha seems to be prone to them.. She flaps and flaps her head, scratches and cries I have been cleaning her ears out and the vet gave us some drops/gel to put in them. Is there anything I can do at home????
Splitting nails: Kaluhas nails seem to split so easily..Is this normal?
She stinks too- Ive tried giving baths... Not sure Ive found the right shampoo or conditioner. What do you use?
It sounds as though yeast may be an issue - it can wreck the skin and cause ear misery beyond belief. That might account for the nasty smell and itchy ears. I would seek out a vet to do a skin/ear test culture in order to see what is going on for certain.
Our Buckskin had a horrible time with yeast infections his entire life and our vet was very helpful in finding medications that provided some relief. Also, somewhere in the archives of this forum is a recipe for a home made ear cream that is a blend of over the counter medications that may be helpful as well.
