What is Ear Care Gold?
Ear Care Gold is a home treatment for your dog's ears. The ingredients in Ear Care Gold provide an inhospitable environment to yeast, bacteria and fungi, yet are gentle and soothing to the ears. This product will help to leave the skin inside the ear normal and healthy.
Designed by our holistic veterinarians, Ear Care Gold is an infused herbal oil, made with potent herbs for dealing with common ear discomfort experienced by many dogs. The base of this product is MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil. Unlike regular coconut oil, this oil remains in a liquid state at room temperature. This oil is known for its ability to keep skin tissue healthy and provide nutrition to the layers of the skin. Furthermore, the oil helps to maintain the natural immunity of the skin, assisting the skin's barrier capability often needed by canines prone to ear problems.
What is Ear Care Gold Used For?
Ear Care Gold is designed to discourage organisms like yeast and bacteria that can make your dogs ears itchy, inflamed and smelly.
You may notice your dog shaking his or her head, scratching repeatedly, redness and swelling, even thickening of the skin in the ears. Infections are something many dogs will experience in their lives and can be very painful. The problem often recurs again and again or never seems to completely clear up.
Ear Care Gold contains no harsh ingredients, alcohol or chemicals that may irritate your dog's skin. For many pets, this product helps to stop the cycle of recurrent infections since it supports the ears' normal acid balance. Once the normal, healthy pH is reestablished, it is much harder for yeast, bacterial or fungal agents to infect the ears.
Unlike other products or medications that may suppress inflammation for a short-term solution, Ear Care Gold supports the natural immune function of the skin in the ears to help break the cycle of recurring ear infections.
If you suspect or know that your dog has ear mites, you'll want to try Ear Clean Gold.
A note from our veterinarian...
This is a great product for dog owners to use as a home remedy for their dog's ear infections. Most often this means yeast infections. You will need to clean the ear prior to using Ear Care Gold. With most canine ear conditions, there is swelling and redness visible inside the ear and usually some debris or discharge. Once the skin's surface inside the ear is clean, the tissues are able to absorb the effectiveness of the treatment.
We suggest cleansing the ears with Ear Clean Gold, designed for use prior to applying Ear Care Gold. Ear Clean Gold can also be used for regular maintenance to clean canine ears as needed.
Both products come with calibrated droppers, for easier application. No need to purchase extra syringes or applicators.
The length of time your dog will require using Ear Care Gold depends on the severity and duration of the ear condition. If the ear condition does not appear to be improving or is getting worse, please seek the guidance of your veterinarian.
Please note that recurrent ear problems may be a sign of underlying allergies, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease, diabetes or other causes. As always, it is imperative to address the underlying health condition if this is a contributing factor to frequent ear disorders.
We recommend using Ear Care Gold for 7 to 10 days. This is usually enough time to help clear up the ear condition. If needed, using the product for a longer period of time will not be harmful to your pet.

Ear Care Gold is Formulated With:
- Goldenseal root (Hydrastis canadensis): The yellow (golden) root of the Goldenseal plant is one of the best herbal antimicrobials available and is for both internal and external use. Its main actions are for treating bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Goldenseal has a soothing quality on infected mucous membranes and inflamed tissues. We use certified organic, cultivated Goldenseal that does not put this endangered species at further risk.
- Olive leaf (Olea europea): Safe enough to be used internally and on the skin, Olive leaf provides natural protection against bacteria, fungi and viral organisms. It will not harm beneficial bacteria nor destory the skin's acid mantle that creates its own natural acidic barrier against potential contaminants like bacteria and fungi.
- Calendula flower (Calendula officinalis): Calendula, for many reasons, is known as THE herb for the skin. Commonly applied to abrasions to help restore normal skin cells, Calendula also has an anti-microbial activity (bacterial, viral and fungal).
- Mullein leaf (Verbascum thapsus): Mullein is effective at helping to keep the inner and outer ear surfaces healthy. It enhances the body's innate resistance to infection and soothes the ear tissues with its slightly demulcent quality.
- St. John's Wort flowering herb (Hypericum perforatum): St. John's Wort is generally known for its use internally but it is also very effective used externally for the health of the underlying nerves when applied to the skin. When infused into oil, these yellow flowers release their pigment, a deep red color. This pigment can also be released by crushing the blossoms between your fingers.
- Aloe Vera leaf (Aloe barbadensis): The juice of the Aloe leaves provides a hydrating and soothing application to irritated or ulcerated tissues. Its immunomodulatory actions may improve skin inflammation. In vitro, it has shown anti-fungal properties.
- MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) Oil: This oil has the ability on its own, to effectively clean and support the daily health of the ears. It gently loosens wax and debris. MCT oil is made up of medium chain fatty acids, similar to the wax normally created inside the ear. It also enhances the ears' natural immunity to harmful bacteria, viruses and yeast.
Herbs are certified organic or ethically wild-harvested.
