Hello,
Thank you for requesting me! I am sorry to hear about Benji.
If you want to try the Kesium, he would take 1/2 every 12 hours. However, ear infections often do not respond to oral antibiotics. Usually I treat an ear infection by cleaning the ear and applying antibiotics drops into the ear.
You could try to clean the ear with a mixture of vinegar and water, putting a couple droppers full into the ear, massaging well, and letting him shake. After he shakes, clean the ear and everything he shakes out with cotton balls or a soft cloth.
Gently cleaning all you can out of the ear, and maybe the antibiotics may help until you can have him checked out by your vet tomorrow. If the ear seems painful, you can also give 1/2 to 1 low dose aspirin, with food, once to twice daily.
Again, thanks for requesting me. Let me know if I can help with or answer anything else.
