I had my dog to the vet last Saturday and he was diagnosed

Customer Question

I had my dog to the vet last Saturday and he was diagnosed with an yeast ear infection. He had done very well all week, but he started whining again last night like he did when this first started. He is on an otibiotic and just started his second week of 2 prednisone 20 mg each every other day. I can't get him into the vet until tomorrow and wondered if it was safe to give him aspirin for pain until I can get him in tomorrow?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations your dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Daemon, he is a 1 and a half year old Rottweiler who weighs 100 pounds.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Rottweiler?
Customer: No he is utd on vaccinations and on monthly trifexis.

Hi this is DR b and I would be happy to help you with this.....no, you cannot and should not give aspirin to your dog. First off, it is terrible for pain and second he is taking Prednisone and giving these two together can cause a gastric ulcer. So, lets talk about what you can do.....you can go back to giving the Pred every day until you get your dog to your vet which you should do asap. Also do you happen to have any tramadol on hand?

Also if your dog ha s a yeast ear infection a primary cause for this should be found as this is almost never a primary disease. There is usually an underlying cause and until this is found your dog may continue to have pain and ear infections. Food allergy is one of the most common causes of secondary yeast otitis in dogs.

I hope this helps you but feel free to let me know if you have any further questions. Sincerely, DRB
