Help keep your best friend’s perky ears feeling healthy with special ear drops & medicine. Chewy carries a wide range of prescription ear medicine for dogs, including prescription ear drops, ear cleaner and topical ear mite treatment.

Only your veterinarian can prescribe prescription ear infection and ear mite medicine. If you notice your dog shaking his head or itching his ears or notice he’s having some trouble hearing, you should make an appointment to see your vet. Your vet will be able to determine if your dog has an infection, mites or some other problem that needs medical attention.

Younger dogs sometimes suffer from ear infections, mites or even foreign objects that get into the ear. A veterinarian can prescribe prescription ear medicine for puppies or an adult treatment in the proper dosage. Puppy ear medicine should only be given on the advice of a vet, and you should take extra care when giving medicine to an active puppy.

Some ear infections can be treated with regular oral antibiotics. Eye issues are somewhat common in dogs as well, and vets will often recommend prescription eye drops & medicine for infections or irritation. You can easily order your ear & eye medicine from the Chewy pet pharmacy. Get the prescription dog medicine you need, plus ear drops and medicine for cats with ear troubles, too.

Commonly prescribed medications for ear problems include otic suspensions like Mometamax for infections and topical parasiticides like Revolution for ear mites. Your veterinarian should know exactly what to prescribe for your furry friend.

How do I give my dog ear drops?

Give your dog ear drops by restraining him safely, either by holding him between your knees facing away from you or by placing him on a table with your dominant arm draped across him. Hold the drops in your dominant hand and use the other hand to pull back the ear flap gently. Then, squeeze out the appropriate number of drops into the ear canal. Gently rub the base of the ear against the head in a circular motion to work the medication down the canal. Repeat with the other ear if directed. Be sure to read all instructions and clean away any discharge before you begin.

How do I prevent dog ear infections?

Prevent dog ear infections by drying the ears thoroughly after swimming and bathing. Regularly cleaning your dog’s ears with ear cleaning solution can help prevent problems before they start. Allergies can also cause recurring infections, so talk to your vet about managing these and other health issues that may cause ear problems.

Which dog breeds are more likely to have ear problems?

Dog breeds that are more likely to have ear problems include those with floppy or hairy ears like cocker spaniels, miniature poodles, and English sheepdogs. Other purebreds and mixed breeds can also be prone to ear problems, and lifestyle factors like frequent swimming and outdoor activities may play a role.
