Customer Question
Dog has severe ear...

Dog has severe ear infection. Ears packed. The dog continues to shake head and scratch ear intermittently. He wanders the house looking but knows where to go to eat and outside to poop and pee. He pants a lot and drinks a lot.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. 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 and age?

His name is ***** ***** he is 12 1/2

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Alex?

He is a cocker spaniel and I have had cockers that got severe ear infections before.

I don't think so. Just a little disoriented.
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Okay thanks

Lets mix one part vinegar with two parts water

Fill both canals full and massage well

Let shake head

Repeat 2-3 times daily

And I would give Tylenol at 15.0 mg/kg now just to be on safe side

Okay?
