My English Mastiff suffers from chronic ear infections. Usually eardrops from out vet help, but this time it seems to only be getting worse. Do you have any suggestions on what we can do for his ear? He constantly shakes his head. It hurts!

Have you had a conversation with your vet about food allergies?  Chronic ear infections in dogs often point to an underlying allergy, and with a diet trial fold allergies are the easiest to confirm or rule out. A diet trial should be with a prescription novel protein diet (roya canin and hills both make several varieties) and should be very strict for 12 weeks (no other treats, or anything). I definitely suggest going back to the vet and discussing allergies
