    Hi..I think I need to give Sweet Pea some ear drops as last night , after looking really good for a few days, looks like her ear is irritating her yet again.

    I was looking online for antibiotic ear drops when I thought that maybe I could use the same solution that we use on our Lab? It is Blue Herbal Ear drops..from herbs for animals...Our Lab was going to have to have ear surgery if it wasn't for this herbal miracle!!

    Do you think I could use this on Sweet Pea? here is the description / ingrediants....

    Awesome Herbal ear cleaning solution that inhibits and destroys bacteria and fungus present in the ear canal. Works for itchy, infected allergy ears, swimmer's ear & even chronic, hard-to-treat ear problems! Contains Boric Acid Powder, Apple Cider Vinegar, Gentian Violet, Isopropyl alcohol, Aloe Vera Juice, Lavendar Essential Oil & Melaleuca Essential Oil.

    Thoughts on this??

    Thanks!!

    Jen

    I would check with someone who knows avian anatomy well. I do not know if their ear canal is the same as a dog's, so I probably wouldn't try it myself.

    I've heard of people who use ear mite drops for cats on chickens..
    but best to check with an Avian vet..
