Finally, as eluded to previously, finding an underlying factor is the key to preventing the infection from returning. Maybe your dog is allergic to his food, swims in a nearby creek or pond, or suffers from low thyroid hormone? Cooperating with your veterinarian will hopefully solve the mystery and lead your dog to a long term solution to his ear problems.
