Bacteria and yeast require three things to grow: a food source, the right temperature and water. When excess moisture is present in your pet's ear, the environment is just right for excess bacteria and yeast to grow, quickly leading to an ear infection.
Moisture In Ear Canal | Moisture in Vertical Canal
Humid weather, water playtime and your pet's ears don't mix, especially if you have a dog with low-hanging ears, such as a cocker spaniel, bloodhound or basset hound. These breeds are particularly susceptible to ear problems because air can't easily get inside to evaporate excess moisture.
As a preventative measure, strive to keep your dog's ears dry, clean and free of debris. Even cats with their erect ears aren't immune from moisture buildup. Use a cotton ball to clean the outside ear area and a little ways into your pet's ear canal. Avoid inserting cotton swabs into the ear since this could damage the eardrum.
As mentioned earlier, you can use swimmers ear drops to help dry up moisture trapped from playing in the water. However, if an ear infection has already set in, or the moisture is too great for ear drops to treat, bring your dog or cat to see our Cupertino veterinarian.
