My 4 month old’s ear was red on the inside and his brother and mother kept licking and cleaning it. so we went to the vet and he said it was a fungi ear infection and put him on drops for 10 days. but I was just wondering how the lil guy could have got this and if I should watch mom & brother. if they can catch it from him.
He is a Lab. hasn’t been in water or had a bath in a month. no other health issues.
the vet said not to clean his ears until he was done with the drops.
also can my other 2 dogs catch this from him?

some breeds are just prone to it, like cockers, bassets, golden retrievers, poodles, etc/ it can be caused from water in the ear. so if they were in water, that may be why. ve also known ear infections to get worse just from the dog scratching it.
