    My Great Pyrenese stinks to high hell and back - I've bathed her so many times, that I worry about her skin. 'Though I use the dog oatmeal stuff.

    I had her treated/fixed/shots in January, and was using ear-drops on her for 3 months following. I didn't think to check her ears again - I just checked tonight. Disgusting.

    THAT is why she stinks. Clearly we need another vet trip - but any dog owners have home remedies for - gross ear syndrome? I don't think it's mites............4 other dogs with no issues, here.

    I feel bad. In all fairness to myself - I just inherited this big girl less than a year ago. I've had my dog for 6 years - no ear issues. Just didn't think to check that shit - kept giving the stinky bitch baths.

    NO SMALL FEAT - she fucking outweighs me.

    This works.
    Do it outside. Blue Gentian Violet stains like a mofo and your dog will shake it's head. Cured my Lab's stank ears.

    6 oz witch hazel
    4 tablespoons boric acid powder
    16 drops gentian violet solution (1% solution)

    Shake well before each use, use a dropper to fill the ear canal. Put a cotton ball in the ear, but don't push it right in, just at the edge to soak up the solution while you massage the base of the ear. The first time you use it you may want to reload the ear with the solution a couple of times to really flush it out, and keep cleaning out with cotton balls. Then use it twice a day for two weeks, then once a day for two weeks, then once monthly for maintenance. Swab the ear out with cotton balls, or those little make up pads work well too, to get it as dry as possible.

    She looks small in this picture - the little brindle underneath her is a good 60 - 70 lbs, the Husky a good 10 - 15 more.
    dear god.................I might as well drop the $200 for the vet. This is like finding shit for a witch's potion...........

    Nope, a pharmacy will have it all and it will cost under $15.

    Yup. Grown up and moved out. I still don't have the time to be a good dog owner and if I'm not going to be a good one I don't want to be one at all.

    I'll try it. Thank you.

    The vet bill is like losing my ass-virginity all over again, every time.

    I don't mean to be a bad dog owner. MY dog has never had an issue in her life.

    I randomly inherited this dog - less than a year ago. She's been fixed, with all her shots, and chipped since. I'm only KIND of a bad dog owner. :down:
