Customer Question

My dog has an ear infection and I have remicin ointment and the p1/10 flush . I have been using the flush but it doesn't seem to help. I have this ointment from before but don't recall how to apply it.
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 and age?
Customer: Trinket age 15 years
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Trinket?

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.

There is a very thorough video here: on how to clean and medicate. The flush will be used first and liberally to clean the debris from the ear canals. Once the canals are cleaned and no longer discharging any material, you can dry the visible ear and ear canal with cotton pads or a cloth and then medicate each ear with the ointment and massage. This is usually completed once daily for 7-10 days.
