Hello there this is Dr. Reupert
I'm sorry to hear about the ear infection . They can be quite painful especially the bacterial types . Mupirocin is a good antibiotic for staph, as a rule and it can be formulated and compounded by Wedgwood Pharmacy . You will need a prescription from a veterinarian to obtain the solution. You did the medically correct thing by having it cultured.

I will attach a link to the pharmacy
