My dog has an ear infection but I’ve only just got pet

Customer Question

My dog has an ear infection but I’ve only just got pet insurance so this will not cover until after 15 days is there anyway of getting antibiotics without prescription as if I go through my vet it will then be a pre exsisting illness which will not be covered
Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infections 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?
Customer: dolly

Customer: shes had this infection before and had rilexine palatable tabs 300mg metacam oral 10ml and osurnia optic gel 1 ml
