Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Where did Otis come from?
2) Has an ear cytology been performed to determine the cause of his ear issues?
3) Have the ear issues ever effectively been treated?
4) Any swelling around the eyes?
5) Do you have clear pictures of both ears and both eyes?
6) When did this begin?
7) How long have you had Otis?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He came from the animal shelter as a kitten.No cytology, just treated with entederm ointment with our dog. I didn't notice the spots before. Maybe slight swelling around eyes

Black brown discharge in ears

Has the entederm fixed the ear issues?

Any pictures to share?

When you massage the ears at the base near his head, do they itch? Does he try to scratch or lean his head down into your hand?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will have to have him treated anyway Thanks
