Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long have they both had signs?

Any redness, discharge, inflammation or odor from the affected ears?

Any issues with fleas?

Any diet change in the 2 months before this started?
