Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a few questions for you to better assess your situation.

Did your vet prescribe any medication for the ear besides prednisolone?

Any vomiting or diarrhea?

Any change in diet?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No change in diet. Isathal eye drops. Dog is 100% OK when out and sleeping

Sorry. Should have said no vomiting or diarrhoea

My name is***** and I would like to assist with your question today. Did you vet take a sample with a swab inside of the ear and test for an ear infection? The prednisolone will help reduce inflammation but would not treat an infection if one is present.

she did
Expert:  Dr. Emily replied 1 year ago.

Ok, and no infection was present, correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Correct. At times she rubs her eyes with her paws. Is it possible it's an eye infection?
