I have a coonhound with the traditional hound ear problems! He was AWFUL about them too - I wrestle cows for a living and this dog whooped me frequently about ear meds or cleaning.

He had yeast issues in his ears. Until I had a moment of brilliance in the drug store - feminine itch wipes. Now, I just rub his ears out a few times a week. We went from the hound you had to body tackle while he screamed to get the meds in or even touch with a q tip to him laying on the floor smiling and wagging his tail on his back. Haven't had an infection since I've started this. It kills the itch instantly and honestly does a way better job cleaning than any of the liquids or even q tips. Vet thought it was genius and is now reccomending to others with 'hound ears' too.

Just thought I'd share!

what brand do you use? I have a basset hound I fight to keep his ears clean and healthy. He gets yeast so easily.

I got the name brand vagisil, because I found a coupon that made it cheaper but really anything with the same active ingredient at the same strength would work!

Sorry to tease you , couldn't help myself.

I love this idea, my bullmastiffs used to get fungus issues in their ears and I started using an athletes foot spray. It was quick and it did the job but the wipes would make the dog love the treatment which the spray did not.
