Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there. Thanks for the question. Let me see if I can help. Ims orry to hear that Clyde is having trouble with his ears. The best thing you can do until you get an appointment is to continue to clean his ears gently on a daily basis. If you are out of the cleaner from the vet, yuo can use hydrogen peroxide. To help with the pain you can give him dog pain meds like Rimadyl or Metacam or Previcox if you have some. If you do not, you can give human buffered (enteric coated) baby aspirin. A large dog like a rottweiler can get 2 baby aspirin or one regular adult aspirin. You cna give this up to 2 times per day for 3 days. Then get in to see your vet soon. Best of luck. Take care.
