He has a bad ear. I've been cleaning it with peroxide and guaze

He has a bad ear. I've been cleaning it with peroxide and guaze pads and using some drops from Tractor Supply plus some panalog. Is is safe to use Dura-Pen on a dog? I have give injections to my horses for many years. The dog is quite large.JA: IÂ'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Carson. Great Pyrenees rescue that was dumped. I'm guessing 3-4 years old.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Carson?Customer: Otherwise, he seems fine. Just shakes his head and the ear. It also has a odor that does get better with cleaning. I have trimmed the hair under his ear to facilitate that. I do notice a little stinky brown stuff on the hair.JA: OK. Got it.

We have a 1 yr old rescue Terrier mix female that had an appt

We have a 1 yr old rescue Terrier mix female that had an appt with our vet yesterday. She is in heat, has ear mites, and hookworms. She is under treatment for these things. We have had her since Tuesday night and she has refused all dog food except a few treats. The vet prescribed a special canned prescription diet food, which she will not eat either. The vets office closed early for Good Friday before I could let them know she would not eat. What should I do? At least she is drinking.

My daughter recuses homeless dogs. My husband brought a female

My daughter recuses homeless dogs. My husband brought a female dog hm about two mos. ago to lancaster ca. My daughter lives in San Fernando, she had the dog at her place for about 2 mos. 2 weeks after we had her she started itching scratching her face. I don't see fleas & i shampoo & conditioner & tea treatment drops. Nothing seems to help, now she has scratched her face up so badly she has fur missing & open wounds all around her eyes & sides of her face. I have had a collar on her for over a month I even bought a larger one but she still somehow has managed to continued to damage her face. She is about 8 mo. old unspayed Terrier mix of sorts. I do have 3 other dogs and 3 cats none of them have any problems. My daughter also has several other dogs & cats none have any symptoms either what could be the problem? I also took her to petsmart they said give her Bendrill?

The chunk is red on the inside and has the consistency of a stiff dough.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?Customer: no. his diet is consistent every day. He has done this the past two days and also once last week.
