Seen at pet smart...

Seen at pet smart for rods. Bacteria in ears. Not confident that two weeks of oticetic flush and posatex will do the job

Veterinarian's Assistant: There are all sorts of infections the 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?

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

Two weeks is the standard treatment length

I have prescribed this treatment regimen thousands of times

Is there some particular reason you dont think it is long enough? :)

You can see the rods?

Did they not tell you to rub some of the drops on to the inner ear flap?
