My dog Bailey, a golden retriever, has had a very serious, chronic ear infection in both ears and I can't afford the $263.00 the vet want's to charge me to put Bailey to sleep and clean out his ears and the medication and ointment he wants me to give Bailey. what do I do? / buy to do this myself? thanks! desperate!!!
Nothing you can do will be as effective as what your vet wants to do. Try cleaning the ear with a cleaner such as oto-clens and then applying antibiotic such as otomax. I usually recommend this 2 x daily for 3 weeks. After the infection is gone, I recommend placing the antibiotic in the ear about 1 x weekly as a preventative. The ear should be cultured to find out exactly what type of antibiotic should be used. Good luck, vetcare
