Customer Question

she is a Shih Tzu, 4. developed ear infection three ago. two bouts of ear wash and antibiotics (7 days each) however the ear seems to be still bothering her. what next?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Sookie
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Sookie?
Customer: not really. she is otherwise healthy weight is perfect. she is otherwise happy. just seems a bit irritated at times. I have two more days (today and tomorrow) to use second set of ear wash and antibiotics.
