My coon-hound has a fairly bad ear infection, and we are

My coon-hound has a fairly bad ear infection, and we are not, at the moment, financially able to go to the vet. Is there anything helpful we can do for her in the meanwhile. We found an ointment for infections, & it seems to help, but when we stop applying it the infection returns rapidly.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations coon-hound 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. How old is coon-hound?Customer: She is about six years old, we got her from the SPCA and they were unable to determine her exact age.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about coon-hound?Customer: No, she has had this ear infection for about a month or so, but unfortunately because of how expensive vet costs are we have not been able to take her yet. The infection cream we are using currently has been working to significantly help the infection but does not seem to be able to get rid of it completely.

My 13 year old chihuahua is on medication for Congestive

My 13 year old chihuahua is on medication for Congestive heart failure for about a year now and recently has started losing weight due to decreased appetitie. Last night after I gave him his meds he was starting to eat and vomited. Today he is barely getting up and after taking his meds isn't drinking like normal. Could the medications be upsetting his stomach because he has lost some weight?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 the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: He was recently seen by his vet last week, and he increased his lasix and treated him for ear infections so I feel like he is doing better however his eating isn't that great and I am concerned that the medications could be causing him to be nauseous and that will only make his eating worse. Basically I want to know if he is in some kind of pain or he is in fact nauseaous and if so what can I do ?
