AN097(B) Ear Infection (ruptured or perforate ear canal) e.g Bacterial infection Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Pasteurella. Ruptured eardrums in cats can be caused by trauma, ear polyps, or an infection, such as ear mites.
~ Middle Ear infection
Expelling pus (smelly ears), is very important, especially needed for dogs will very narrow ear canals. Keeping in mind a chronic ear infection can cause a peripheral vestibular disorder (a dysfunction of the balance organs of the inner ear) or central vestibular disorder (a dysfunction of one or more parts of the central nervous system that help process balance and spatial information). Symptoms of ear infections can be painful inflammation, painful earache, profuse cadaverously smelling discharge, middle ear catarrhal, deafness, fever, imbalance, head tilting. Many times (if a swab was done) the lab results would show a severe Staphylococcal infection or sometimes Pseudomonas Auruginosa.
Example: Pseudomonas Auruginosa (P. aeruginosa), is a gram-negative bacillus, is ubiquitous in the environment but an uncommon inhabitant of the normal external ear canal and middle ear of dogs. As small animal veterinarians can attest, ears infected with P. aeruginosa can be some of their most challenging cases. (which is antibiotic drug resistant). Studies have reported moderate to high levels of resistance to some commonly used antimicrobials of P. aeruginosa isolates from cases of otitis externa.
Clinical signs - Animals with P. aeruginosa ear infections typically exhibit one or more of the following clinical signs or conditions:
~ head shaking or ear scratching
~ purulent exudate (occasionally hemopurulent or mucoid)
~ swelling, inflammation, and pain
~ otitis media
~ For "RUPTURED" ear Drum.
While many ruptured eardrums will heal on their own. However, we will still need to help prevent infection and repair the rupture and acute pain. This acute pain is worse when a pet try's to eat, therefore cannot eat. With a ruptured eardrum, we must avoid any type of "ear drops" either natural or chemicals going into the ear is damaged.
When an Ear infection is either acute or chronic which continues for a longer period we see symptoms that can result from a peripheral vestibular disorder (a dysfunction of the balance organs of the inner ear) or central vestibular disorder (a dysfunction of one or more parts of the central nervous system that help process balance and spatial information).
Other types of repair to nervous system causing cerebral ataxia paralysis.
1. Vestibular neuritis (or vestibular neuronitis) and labyrinthitis are disorders that result in inflammation of the inner ear and/or the nerve connecting the inner ear to the brain.
2. Generally caused by a Viral infection (e.g herpes virus, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), these conditions cause vertigo (usually experienced as a spinning sensation), dizziness, imbalance, unsteadiness, and sometimes problems with vision or hearing.
Middle ear infections have a tendency to become chronic and may lead to hearing loss. Often the cause is viral that has been undetected.
Neuritis (inflammation of the nerve)
affects the branch associated with balance, resulting in dizziness or vertigo but no change in hearing.
The term neuronitis (damage to the sensory neurons of the vestibular ganglion) is also used.
Labyrinthitis (inflammation of the labyrinth)
occurs when an infection affects both branches of the vestibulocochlear nerve, resulting in hearing changes as well as dizziness or vertigo.
The inner ear consists of a system of fluid-filled tubes and sacs called the labyrinth.
The labyrinth serves two functions: hearing and balance.
1. The hearing function involves the cochlea, a snail-shaped tube filled with fluid and sensitive nerve endings that transmit sound signals to the brain.
2. The balance function involves the vestibular organs. Fluid and hair cells in the three loop-shaped semicircular canals and the sac-shaped utricle and saccule provide the brain with information about the head movement. Signals travel from the labyrinth to the brain via the vestibulocochlear nerve (the eighth cranial nerve), which has two branches. One branch (the cochlear nerve) transmits messages from the hearing organ, while the other (the vestibular nerve) transmits messages from the balance organs. The brain integrates balance signals sent through the vestibular nerve from the right ear and the left ear. When one side is infected, it sends faulty signals. The brain thus receives mismatched information, resulting in dizziness or vertigo.
Inner ear infections that cause vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis are usually viral rather than bacterial. Although the symptoms of bacterial and viral infections may be similar, the treatments are very different, so proper diagnosis by a physician is essential.
In serous labyrinthitis, bacteria that have infected the middle ear or the bone surrounding the inner ear produce toxins that invade the inner ear via the oval or round windows and inflame the cochlea, the vestibular system, or both. Serous labyrinthitis is most frequently a result of chronic, untreated middle ear infections (chronic otitis media) and is characterized by subtle or mild symptoms. Less common is suppurative labyrinthitis, in which bacterial organisms themselves invade the labyrinth. The infection originates either in the middle ear or in the cerebrospinal fluid, as a result of bacterial meningitis. Bacteria can enter the inner ear through the cochlear aqueduct or internal auditory canal, or through a fistula (an abnormal opening) in the horizontal semicircular canal. Or Pseudomonas aeruginosa, this bacteria (skin lesions and ear infection) which is antibiotic drug resistant.
"Viral infections" of the "inner ear" are more common than bacterial infections, but less is known about them. An inner ear viral infection may be the result of a systemic viral illness or, the infection may be confined to the labyrinth or the vestibulocochlear nerve. Usually, only one ear is affected. Some of the viruses that have been associated with vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis include herpes viruses (such as influenza, hepatitis, and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), herpes) Other viruses may be involved that are as yet unidentified because of difficulties in sampling the labyrinth without destroying it. Because the inner ear infection is usually caused by a virus, it can run its course and then go dormant in the nerve only to flare up again at any time. There is currently no way to predict whether or not it will come back.
Nexabiotic Capsules (by Bioprosper Labs)
The specific strains in of probiotics that are listed in the "Nexabiotic" contain supportive strains" such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Casei and plantarum, Streptococcus thermophilus, and Bifobacterium longum can also be extremely beneficial.
PET DOSAGE: Add a pinch in meals for cats, toy dog and other small animals.
Half powder from the capsule for small to med canines and full cap of powder for large canines.For 2 months treatment. (It takes 2 months to restore gut flora to maintain a pet strong immune system against infections)
What are the common EAR SYMPTOMS concerns Pain Symptoms and Behaviors?
If your dog or cat's eardrum is perforated, the base of the ear and the external part of the ear canal will be painful to the touch. Your dog likely will shy away, yelp or even snap if you touch these parts of the ear.
commonly, a cat or dog with a perforated eardrum will refuse to eat or open its mouth, as moving the jaw causes even greater pain in the area of the ruptured eardrum. You may notice your dog pawing at its own head and ears, whining with pain, or becoming generally less active and more depressed. Please use the HAMPL Pain Eze 32 drops on the body every 5 minutes as needed for relief or single homeopathic Aconite CM.
Hearing and Neurological Symptoms.
When the eardrum is perforated, dogs and cats experience a degree of hearing loss, specifically losing the ability to hear high-pitched sounds. Your pet may seem unresponsive to commands or whistles or household noises if it has hearing loss. Also perforated eardrum also affects a dog's or cat's balance. Your pet may display neurological symptoms, including stumbling, falling or walking around in circles. Facial paralysis can occur if the ear infection causes inflammation of the facial nerve running near the dog's inner ear. You might see your dog's eyes twitching abnormally, the eyelids may droop or the dog may lose the ability to blink normally.
Prevent Surgery (repair hole)
To repair the perforation. We suggest the use of the homeopathic HAMPL InjurySurgery 31 30ml drops.
Possible EAR FUNGAL INFECTION
If NOT a bacterial infection after all (and eardrum is not perforated), but possible fungal infection, then use the HAMPL Fungal Ear Support formulas.
Example: Apple Cider Vinegar mix with alcohol and some herbal thuja added (optional). The ideal combination to force the fungi into dormancy is a combination of Cider Vinegar with alcohol and Thuja herb. Using this combination will help dry out the canal and leave a fine layer of acetic acid (from the Vinegar) on the skin of the canal along with a residue of this herb (Thuja).

What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
(c)“NUTRITIONAL Mix ” Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix. Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid) Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
DOSING: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat: try mixing well into food and hand piece before feeding main meals. Or dose same as suggested for felines, but add three times as much herbal medicines and vitamins to 1/2 cup of water or (unsweetened) apple sauce or apple juice.

My cat frankie was suffering from ear infection and possible ruptured drum since vet could not see the ear drum thru all the debris in his ears and he had a confirmed rupture in i ear 6mths earlier. I ordered the ear infection remedies for infection with ruptured eardrum . I recieved the ear clear which helped alieviate frankies itchy painful ears. And the injury surge that helps repair rupture along with the infection fighter . These products worked beautifully and helped frankie recover without the use of harmful antibiotics or cortisone that i did not want to use.! The staff was very helpful and answered my email questions. And also sent me a few complimentry remedies to try for some of frankies other ailments . I have now just placed a large order for his chronic constipation and allergies. This is a great company and they have a natural way to truly help heal without doing harm . This gives so much hope and is a blessing.
It is a very good set, did clear ear infection, but due to our girl allergy we still have bit of a problem reapearing. I will use it every time is needed, highly recomend drops, Draw drops work very good and Ear Clear does the job. Would wish for more Ear Clear drops in the bottle, we just used it all.
This remedy ease any ear issue of my dog, no more scratch & shaking.
Really saw the difference at the 3 dosage, my toy dog got much relief after using this.
The redness in the ears has gone and Ted is no longer scratching at them. I'm really pleased with this product.
