What can you give your dog for an ear infection?
You should go to your vet and they will give your dog the appropriate medication for its ear infection. My dog use to have chronic ear infections and it really isn't something you should mess around with trying home remedies etc. I realize it may be a cost issue but your pet is important and its hearing is very important to it as your hearing is important to you - your vet maybe able to arrange a payment plan if you cannot afford it so I encourage you to get a prescribed med.
if the medication that you are refering to was previously prescribd you your dog it is okay to use it. just make sure that its not expired and there is enough of it left to get rid of the infection. if it is not for your dog then do not give it to your dog. especially if it is a prescription for a person, the dose will be inaccurate.
This is probably inflammatory exudate, which may be due to a bacterial infection, a yeast infection or an ear mite infestation. Your veterinarian can do a simple ear swab test to see what type of infection or infestation your dog may have. Based upon that, your veterinarian will give you the medications and instructions to get the infection cleared up.
If your dog has an ear infection could it cause his eyes to be swollen and also the side of his face?
If your dog has an ear infection, they may be leaning their head to one side, scratching at that particular ear, or be acting abnormally. Check to see if the ear is red or inflammed, and most importantly, take your dog to the veterinarian. They usually lay in bed or they keep scratching at their ear.
