The vet took a swab & said it was a bacterial infedtion. There has never been a noticable discharge. He is fed on Science plan purchased from the veterinarian surgery.
Since Friday evening he has started shaking his head a lot again. He is now very agitated when I put the ear wash in his ears & he is trying to scratch his ear again. He really dislikes me trying to wipe out the ear after I have put the wash in & massaged it in. He rubs his ear on the floor when he is stopped from scratching it. He is obviously in pain again & its not long since he had the earwash with steriods in & since that stopped I have continued with the normal ear wash prescribed. I just feel it it time he saw a specialist as I fail to see why they can't clear up a bacterial infection.
Thank you very much. I will see the vet tomorrow hopefully & change his diet. His snacks are veggies anyway, he is addicted to broccoli. He sits at the fridge before bed every night waiting for his bedtime snack! The only way he accepts me doing his ear wash is when his broccoli is waiting for him!
