We have a lab/shepard mix. He is 4yrs. old. He has had an ear infection for 6mths.
It comes and goes. Mostly comes. The vethas had him on Amoxicillin 250& 500mg.The cost of these drugs from the vet is killing us.We just want our dog healthy again. Any suggestions on other treatments for him? We have upgraded him to a high protein diet.(eggs,ground beef ect.) This inconjunction with meds is starting to help.Anything else wouldbe appreciated. We are purchassing Baytril Otic & more Amox. Thanks forany help.
Ear infections are best treated with topical medication. I usually treat an ear infection for 3 weeks. The ear should be cultures to find out the exact antibiotic that will kill the infection. Some ear infections are caused by allergies. The food change was a good idea but if this becomes a chronic problem you may want to think about have your pet allergy tested. Good luck, Vetcare
