He told me that he uses Zynox ear solution followed up by lightly drying her ears after bath for his Mimi(his maltese's name) and never had ear infection...I got myself one without hydrocortisone(his has one with hydrocortisone), and after few days his smell from his ear went away and he does not scratch his ear. I don't know if yours is having ear troubles from bath.. but if it is, you can try it.. it works really well, and definitely saved me from going to see a vet!
I swear by Zymox. I prefer the formula with hydrocortisone.

ZYMOX Otic with Hydrocortisone (1.0%)

Does.Gucci's ear feel pretty warm, or have an odor? My Eerie had a few and he would scratch , his ear felt warm and had an odor.

Was Gucci bathed at the groomer or by you? Was ear hair on removed on Thursday? Sometimes hair removal can irritate them if not removed correctly. Sammie had a sore red ear once, I never really found out why, and the Vet found no infection but he gave me the Zymox Marj recommended and it cleared it up. I use (Klear Otic) ear cleaner after each bath. I saturate a cotton ball and put in ear and rub gently at base of ear. The cleaner drys up water left in the ear. Good luck and hope your baby feels better soon.

Yeah I usually just take a good wiff.... if they have an odor, I know it is time to do something LOL

Poor Gucci... Do take her in... They may swab it... sometimes they are fungal infections, not bacterial.

It sounds like an ear infection....yeast in the ears which is very common with fluffs that have ears that hang down. They scratch the ear and it has an odor....not pleasant. Water and moisture bullds from bathing. It's simple to cure and very common. Hope Gucci feels better.

I took Gucci to the vet yesterday. She said that she didn't see an infection, but there was a bit of redness. She cleaned her ears and gave me some drops to put in her ears twice a day for a week and said that should help. The vet said that she did yelp when she was cleaning out her ears, so I assume it is definitely her ear that is bothering her. I know it's silly, but every time I hold her, I am petrified of hurting her. She yelps SO loud and it sounds like I'm killing her.
Hopefully the drops help. -- The vet did tell me to buy something to put in her ears after baths, so I will get some Zymox ASAP.
