Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, and thanks for writing in.
To answer your question - yes, clindamycin can be used for ear infections in dogs (if the infection is bacterial, and is susceptible to clindamycin). But, there are better antibiotics to use for bacterial ear infections in dogs (i.e. Baytril, Zenequin, Orbax). In addition, ear drops are usually needed to treat ear infections in dogs, especially if there is a yeast component to the infection, or any inflammation present.
