Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I ma so sorry that it has taken so long to get your answer. I am also sorry that I cannot do a phone call because of teh area that I live with limited access but I would like to help.
Toy poodles often have ear infections because there is hair inside the canal keeping the area moist and warm, a great environment for bacteria to grow. The best thing to us is SWimmers Ear, that can be purchased over the counter at the human pharmacy. Apply a few drops to each, ear, massage ir down and then take a kleenex and wipe out the excess. Do this every 6-8 hrs and this will bring the bacteria to the surface and dry out this area so the bacteria cannot grow. You may need to take your gal to your vet for an exam since this may not be curative and may require antibiotics. I hesitate to recommend the ear drops for your son because it may not be the correct antibiotic for your sweet girl.
Does that make sense to you?
