They gave me a wash to also use in addition to the medicine the wash is called Vet solution ear cleansing solution. I still use the wash however I do not use the medicine anymore. I thought her only ear that was a problem was her right however I recently found out I am wrong, her left is also a problem. When I sue the wash I put it on a cotton swab and go in her ear and rub it around removing the brown stuff. This night I pulled it out of her left ear and instead it had blood on it. I immediately stopped after I saw blood. This is the first time it happened so I am not too worried. Also keep in mind it has been working pretty well. After the wash is sued she itches yet. If things get worse I will update this thread. Am I handling the situation properly? I dont trust the vet I want a second opinion.
Thanx to those who give useful advice.
when was the last time your dogs ears were checked by a vet?
if you dont trust this one,go to another! ears should not be left,they can be very painfull and if left untreated could lead to furthur problems like vestibular syndrome and surgery.i would not put anything down your dogs ear,it could make things worse you do not want to perferate your dogs eardrum
make an appt with another vet in the morn,it may turn out to be nothing,which is good,but if it was my dog i wouldnt take the chance.sorry
