Yes, Becky, but a systemic antibiotic is rarely necessary when addressing an otitis externa (outer ear infection). Otitis media/interna (middle ear infections) must be treated with them. An antibiotic isn't going to be harmful, however, unless your Maltipoo experiences an adverse drug reaction. What are the choices available, please?
