Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. Is the ear red? Is there any drainage or odor? What are his symptoms of earache? What types of drops did you use? How much does he weigh?
Thank you, ***** ***** he has a middle ear infection. That usually requires oral antibiotics to treat.
Until you can get him to a vet you can give him benadryl and aspirin.
Benadryl- 1/2 of a 25 mg tablet every 12 hours as needed
Aspirin-1/2 of an 81 mg tablet every 12 hours as needed. Give it with a meal.
If you want to try something over the counter these drops are good for infection and inflammation.
But if you can not see any drainage or redness, the infection is most likely deep down and that usually requires oral antibiotics to treat it.
Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
