Looking regarding ear infections- Winston my French bulldog

Looking for answers regarding ear infections- Winston my French bulldog had foxtail removed from his right ear. Well he suffered a rough 13 days of neck spasms and found out too late was allergic to Tramadol and Robaxin - plus went 8 days without antibiotics! Finally. on clavamox, gabapentin and acepromozide! He went 52 hours without episode and as we tapered off prednisone! I think he now has middle ear infection. Can he recover from all this madness and can neck spasm occur from ear infections.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations your French bulldog 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. What is the French bulldog's name?Customer: WinstonJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Winston?Customer: Went to the ER late cause out if the blur he would scream in pain and tilt head to the right - the er vet suspected slipped disc - after X-rays and spine was unremarkable- she took a look in his ear. And found yellow gunk and super inflamed - she flushed the ear and sent us home with all this pain meds and no antibiotics- told his to see our vet. Which was hard due to Fourth of July. Instead he suffered mini seizures one hour after meds were given. Through process of elimination my vets said he was having reaction to the meds and pulled him off and gave him gabapentin- volia it really helped. 52 hours without episode- then he got heated and had a mild episode- gave him some acepromozide and it calmed him down. But he is still scratching at that ear and trying to rub his face off. All this time -100% crated rested.JA: OK. Got it.
