Hello,Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
I am sorry to hear about Kiwi's ear. How long has it been having this discharge?
This could be an infection. The best way to tell is to look at some of the discharge under a microscope, and to look into the ear canal with an otoscope and see if the ear drum is intact.
She may need antibiotics, or other prescription medication.
Until you can get her to a veterinarian to be checked, you can clean the ear with water/vinegar solution. Pour some into the ear, massage the ear for 30 seconds or longer, then let her shake. Then dry the ear off, removing any discharge expelled from the ear by her shaking.If the ear looks more red than the other ear, you can apply a little Cortaid or Cortizone 10 or other cortisone containing ointment to the inside of the ear, but not down into the ear canal.
Let me know if this helps, and what else I can answer.
I hope you were able to see my responses; I have not heard back from you! Can I help with anything else?
