~ 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
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.
Other causes of ear conditions:
1. Vestibular neuritis (or vestibular neuronitis) and labyrinthitis is 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 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.
1. BACTERIAL INFECTION
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.
SKIN Pyoderma lesions and infection caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which is antibiotic drug resistant. If your pet has been diagnosed with an immune compromised bacterial infection called "Pseudomonas" (which can appear anywhere in body and ear canal). HAMPL Bacterial Infection 260 200ml (skin treatment - topically and internal use).
2. VIRAL INFECTION
"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.
The majority of inflammatory diseases start in your gut.

Casual repeat dosing can add to water bowl or feed dish or water trough for wildlife or farm animals.
Refer to Bottle Label for suggested frequencies repeat dosing needed per day.
NOTE: the rule is one must “repeat a dose” more frequently with less time in between each application dose, which is more important than the amount given each time. Repeat application will provide faster action.
(b) “HERBAL MEDICINES ” (brown liquid – strong odour & tasting) ”Application dosing” for all species and sizes: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat : add herbal drops (as recommended on bottle label) to some (unsweetened apple sauce or apple juice) for canines and oral syringe side of mouth. Can add other vitamins (crushed) Alkaline green powders etc. to mix.
Refer to Bottle Label for amount of drops per species size. e.g 60 drops = 1 teaspoon
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.
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 1/2 cup of boiled hot water 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)
Slippery Elm Powder If needing to add or use Slippery Elm powder
FOR CONDITIONS like …. diarrhea, stomach ulcers, or sore inflamed mouth or mouth ulcers, constipation, or IBS (i.e. colitis), plus it can also been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids.
CONVALESCING ..can been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids or not eating very well. ~ Add a small amount of powder to the mix to enough to make a runny liquid mix, if you put too much of the powder it will become thick and gluggy, if this happens you will need to add more liquid to it. Can add crushed vitamins and herbal medicines to this as well. OPTIONS: Oral dose in syringe or add to meals three times a day or more to maintain normal health again, then can stop or reduce frequencies.
