My dog is always shaking her head. I took her to the vet many times and they always give us chemicals and we clean her ears out with them and cotton swabs. It doesn't work. Then I switched foods and her ear problems went away for a while, but then it came back. Also are their any other good forums to ask this question and get an answer?

I don't like seeing my dog in pain please help!

Get a second opinion from a different vet and bring any tests your vet has done to the second vet.
Have her allergy tested, she may be allergic to grains, which a lot of dogs can be, and there are a lot of foods without grains.

I agree - get a second opinion. You said the food made it better for a while...maybe time to switch foods again? Maybe even a raw diet...I have heard that can help dogs with yeasty ears. Best of luck, sorry your pup is in pain!

what food did you switch to and from what?
Its not only grains that can cause "allergies" or intolerances that could cause yeast.
A food allergy to the protien source could be just as much to blame.
