It is ok. The dose for dogs is 10 mg/kg/day. But if your dog's ear infection is a mixed type that includes yeast (Malasezzia) it wont do good. I think a cytology of the ear canals should be made and involved organisms should be determined. Also cleaning your dogs ears during the treatment is important too.
