Ear Yeast Infections & Food Allergies?
Recently, I inquired with my vet about a persistent (1 month) yeast infection in both ears of my 9 year old standard poodle. She did test them and confirmed it was yeast only and not mites or bacterial infection.
She also mentioned that it may be a food allergy - protein or grain based. She suspects either a corn or chicken sensitivity/allergy. She also said it could be seasonal allergies but the dog is 9 and has always been fine and always on the same dog food.
Has anyone else had experience with this and what advice can you offer? I'm putting off changing food (Pedigree dry adult which is heavy with corn & chicken-parts additives) or having allergy testing without a little more research and after the ear drops run their course.
