I just took my dog to the vet this morning, and she was diagnosed with a yeast infection in her ear. She was prescribed miconazole ear drops, and an ear wash. She is so miserable and keeps shaking her every few seconds. I was just wondering how long it will take the yeast medication to start working? How long after using the miconazole should I use the ear wash (or vice versa)?

Our 13 yr old cocker appears to have had some sort of

Our 13 yr old cocker appears to have had some sort of seizure. We found her in a corner where she had thrown up twice. She was shaking and her eyes were bulging and twitching quite quickly. As we were consoling her and trying to calm her she threw up one more time. She has now stopped shaking and resting quietly but her eyes are still twitching back and forth, although not appearing to be bulging. She was swallowing quite a bit but doesn't want to drink. She has now laid her head down and appears resting quietly. Her eye movements are greatly reduced now. She is not panting but breathing a little faster than normal.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: She has recently been put on medication for thyroid...hang on, I'll get what they are.

My dog is stumbling like she's dizzy and shaking really bad. Can't walk straight and her eyes are shifting constantly. Symptoms came out of no where. She was fine then she wasn't. She didn't eat this morning she never does. She's a 7 year old husky that had dental surgery a couple weeks agoJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Any idea what it could be? Did she have a stroke or something?JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?Customer: No that's it. She was perfectly fine then all of a sudden she wasn't. She's drueling really bad now

Standard poodle has stopped shaking his head (wants to, half starts, then stops like it hurts). ["shaking head" as part of what dogs normally do to shake their whole body]. Also panting a lot more than normal. Not as spunky as usual. Extra bad breath.NOTE: He had a splenectomy 2 weeks ago due to ruptured spleen/hematoma. Pathology showed benign tumors. Gradual decrease of tramadol/gabapentin to stopping on Friday. Vet follow-up last week, including pack red blood cell test showed marked improvement. Above symptoms could be totally unrelated, but thought I should mention it.

Have a 40 # ***** she has had an ongoing ear infection for many mos, off and on for close to a yr. coming and going it seemed She refuses car rides barks and whines horribly. My husband had a serious stroke so needless to say her ears finally got unbearable . getting her to a vet, she dx outer infection tx with phytovet wash and mometamax drops on 7-14-16. a few days before her eyes suddenly became very bloodshot, and she began to show vision issues. I was not able to take her myself, had to depend on a teenager, so i missed consultation. She also rx ofloxacin 0.3% drops for eyes TID She seems to have gone blind now just within the last 5-7 days, running into things afraid to go up/ down stairs. Ther is a possiblility she ate some plants that had poisoni ivy killer on them about 10-14 days ago. but did not show signs or vomiting. could she be going blind from the ear infection or fromthe the poison?

My lab is having ear issues. There is brown smelly stuff in his outer ear. He shakes his head alot. Perhaps this is a bacterial infection or ear mites? I have used hydrogen peroxide as an ear wash which helps wash out the ear but the stuff and pain persists. His ear is sensitive to touch and he shakes his head alot. Can you prescribe something?Connie
