    Excess ear wax is a response to an irritant - foreign material or infection. Mites are very common in younger animals, but can't be excluded from older ones. An ear swab is a good start - looking for mite eggs and a yeast called malassezia. The latter is very common and is often associated with other skin problems - particularly around the ears, face, neck, armpits, groin and perianal area.

    Many vets feel that a amnky ear is a sign of an overall skin complaint, often allergy based. Spaniels are a bit prone to heavy grease in their coats so this can be a contributing factor.

    So, get the ears checked. If no better, get them checked again and make sure all flea control is up to date.

    As regards the powder, I wouldn't use it, what ever apparent good results are reported. If any of the powder gets in the ear canal, this will cause further irritation.

    I think you'll find that it is a Springer thing mate,but I use this,mind you if it is mites then you need a prescription from a vet for an ear drop medicine.

    If it smells it needs to see a vet. There is some infection/infestation going on. No arguing.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    My 7 month old springer has this, and vet prescribed CanAural. (sp?)
    Unfortunately, I've finished off the bottle of medicine, and the pup is still suffering a bit, although no longer shaking his head. I don't want to put the stuff into him for the rest of his life... should I go back to vet, or should I hope it sorts itself out?

    My vizsla bitch has this also. Vet says its an allergy. Ruby would scratch her outer ear raw at times. I clean it out with a baby wipe and appy some carruba(spelling) drops

    Get yourself some Easotic or CleanAural ear cleaner and give them a good flush out every other day for a week. If the ears are still bothering after that then go back. Sometimes even once the infection/infestation is cleared there is a lot of wax, debris etc that needs cleaning out.
