my rotweiler mix has continual black goop in his ears, diagnosed as an infection. This becomes very painful and the monthly recurring trips to the vet are not only expensive, but are becoming tramatic for me and him. Sedation, ear suction, etc. is becoming a no end solution to the cause. I think it's an allergy?

Hey, I have a Rott mix too...Exactly the same problem...The vet thinks its a food allergy and he is on special food for almost 6 weeks.  Very little improvment, except the infection has changed now from the black goo to a dry, flakey one.  I kind of think he is getting better, but not sure.

Email me at danielbrady@sbcglobal.net and we can talk about this....I dont know anyone else who has a dog going through the same thing...

experienced the same w/my St Bernard & was told its a yeast-type infection common in large dog ears.  His groomer recommended using baby wipes twice daily to get it under control & once daily thereafter.  Clean all the crevices & way down inside.  Baby wipes contain antibacterial ingredients & are easy to use w/virtually no trauma!

I have a black 7mos old black lab that is also having recurring ear problems. The vet here has told us that it is a food allergy. Check out sites on dog allergies, and you will likely find symptoms that your dog is experiencing. I noticed ours had problems both times after getting into the milk dish for our cat. Ear drops clear the problem after a few days, but unfortuneatly the goop still needs to be cleaned out, and this is irratable for the dog. Good luck
