Question
Since my french bulldog was a puppy he has had numerous amounts of ear infections.  I have to admit I would get out of the habit of cleaning them.  We moved and had to get a new vet and she is saying not to use a cleaning solution on him.  And she put him on antibiotics and told me to give him zrytec.  That has not stopped it, but helped just a little bit.  She suggest having a procedure done to check his ear canal.  That will cost about $300.  I just dont feel right about it and have never been told not to clean his ear? I want to start using solution on him again because that has always fixed the problem.  Is there a certain kind of solution I should use for him?

Thank you !!!
