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.
