My golden retriever puppy was brought to the vet for her 2nd jab and at the same time the vet said my pup's ears were slightly infected.(there were dark coloured residue inside and he took a sample of it and put it under the microscope)..... So he prescribed Dermotic Ear and Skin Suspension . Contents: 20mg Miconazole Nitrate, 5mg Predisolone Acetate, and 0.696mg Polymyxin B Sulfate. I have treated my pup twice daily, for 2 days. But this evening, the inside of her ears turned slightly red after application. Is this a treatment effect of the medication? Answered by Sebrina Gusa 2 years ago.
The label on all vaccines says that vaccinations should only be given to healthy animals. If your dog had an ear infection, then he was not healthy. He could also be having an allergic reaction to the vaccines. Do some research on vaccines. If the ears are getting worse, then another medication should be tried. The problem could be the ear med you are using. I, personally, have changed over to more natural methods of treating my dogs and they are better for it. The last ear infection around here was in a cat. I treated it with Colloidal Silver. Infection gone in a couple of days! Answered by Alphonso Pluemer 2 years ago.

I have a two year old mini pinscher, her name is chichi She's been having fever for about a week now and keeps on scratching her left ear. I already brought her to the vet on the 2nd day of her fever. but her vet couldn't find anything wrong. Her ear is clean, (always clean). He then prescribed an anti inflammatory and paracetamol. after 3 days of medication, the vet is expecting that Chichi will be fine by then, but she's not! So he suggested to take a few tests, for the heart, liver, ears, and so on. Now the vet is saying that she has ear mites., but i'm confused! Chichi's ear is always clean and what does it have to do with the fever?? Is that it? Ear mites?? Should i go to another vet to have her check again? I'm so worried, it's been a week now! What should i do? and after her 1 day stay with the vet, she lost her appetite and doesn't play much with my other dogs. : ( And I'm also worried about my two other dogs, if Chichi has ear mites is it possible my other dogs has too? or if they don't they have yet, is it likely that Chichi might transfer it to them? Please help!!! Answered by Chery Kurz 2 years ago.
Ok the first thing to do is calm down and relax, your dog will sense your uptight. It may seem to you from looking into her ear that it is clean,but a dogs ear goes at a 90degree angle and so things can get trapped in the ear canal. An ear wash epi-otic can help remove things.It is acid based so it can sting a little. Dermotic is an ear ointment which we would prescribe first to settle the ear down then the ear wash. It needs to be done when advised to get rid of ear infection or what the problem maybe. Are you able to take her temperature at home?? I would say if you are not happy with the vets explaination or treatment to seek advice from another vet. Good luck with it and let me know how you go :) Answered by Dong Deinert 2 years ago.
Your vet prescribed acetaminophen with an anti-inflammatory? Wow acetaminophen is an NSAID (non steroidal anti-inflammitory drug). Acetaminophen can cause severe liver problems in dogs even in small dosages. Has the vet taken a sample of the ear was and performed an ear wax cytology? That will tell you if the dog has ear mites. Did the vet even look down into the ear with an otoscope? The ear problem could be caused from a piece of grass or other foreign body. Are you taking her temperature at home? The normal temperature is 101-102F (38-39C). You should be taking this dog's temperature at home to monitor the fever. My dog would be seeing another vet. Answered by Edward Wishard 2 years ago.
First of all my advice to you is to change your vet - or at least get a second opinion. What sort of fever is she running? Normal for a dog is around 101 although they often go up to 102 with a visit to the vet (stress). 102-103 would indicate a low-grade infection going on, and anything above that - EMERGENCY. At this point you need to establish whether or not she does have ear-mites. This should be within the remit of any first- year student vet to confirm or otherwise!!! And yes, it could be passed to your other dogs. There is medication easily available to sort that out. If she's not responding to whatever treatment she's had, and is still running a fever, she needs antibiotics at the very least, depending on how high the fever actually is. If she doesn't respond, again, she needs blood tests. And so on. But hey, I'm not the vet around here!!! Answered by Ethan Hendrixson 2 years ago.
If the vet suspects ear mites, did he find any presence of infection? A fever is often a symptom of an infection. What did he prescribe to treat the ear mites? Paracetamol is used to treat pain and symptoms, not the underlying cause. Yes, mites can be transferred; your other dogs could (possibly) have them. If this vet did not prescribe something for the mites and did not test for infection, get another vet to have a look - take all of your dogs in for a quick inspection of their ears. Ear mites are certainly treatable. Answered by Vesta Creviston 2 years ago.
Go to another Vet, explain what's been going on and how long. I would also bring in the meds they were giving her. Again, like humans, there is a reason why ChiChi is displaying a fever. Since I have six dogs, and one of mine has a constant ear problem, its an easy fix. One of my girls constantly pulls at her ear...like a baby does, whines and cries. ChiChi may have an inner ear issue that the Vet is missing, mine had a tumor in hers. Go see another Vet, because the one your speaking of doesn't know JACK. Answered by Danyel Leamon 2 years ago.
Ear mites do not cause fevers. What is the fever -- you know normal for a dog is 102 degrees F. Not like a person. Answered by Emiko Lubinski 2 years ago.
Go to another vet and if that other vet doesnt know whats going on then call a special center.Maybe they can help out. Answered by Maribel Weatherley 2 years ago.
The best way to treat the ear is to pour olive oil down it. It sonds wierd but trust me it works. Also if it dosen't i wont harm the dog. Also go to several vets and maybe a specialist vet? Dont worry it will proberbly calm down but olive oil is best because you might not be able to see from the outside but there might be wax on the inside and olive oil will melt it. Garlic as well as if there is anything infected or living in there it will kill it. She may seem like it is painful but please trst me it works. Try live oil and garlic and if they dont work THEN try the vets. Answered by Willetta Pohlman 2 years ago.
If she is not responding to treatment, she needs to be seen again - by another vet. Answered by Tiffaney Kothe 2 years ago.
