Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Good morning, I am Laura, one of the UK vets.
Poor Frank. The ears and the skin will be linked. Have you any medication left over from previous issues?
Unfortunately I can't do phone calls right now, but your request is in the Request Centre for another vet to pick up if they can.
If the ears are red and itchy unfortunately the only thing that is going to help them settle down is a medicated drop with some steroid in it. These are all prescription only, so you'll need to go to your vet for those. I'd give them a call.
Meanwhile if he is really sore you can give him a quarter of a human paracetamol tablet (they're almost always 500mg).
In the long term if he continues with the itchy skin and recurring ear infections, I would be looking for an underlying allergy. Ear problems are very commonly food allergies.
Ouch, those ears look sore. I can see the thickening and cobbling of the skin inside the ear flap - again this would point me at a dietary allergy.
Unfortunately due to UK prescribing laws I can't prescribe anything for you online, I'd have to have seen your pup first at some point.
I hope you get one. Even if they can't give you drops ask if they could give you a few days of steroid tablets until they can see him.
Any further issues, you can post in here, this thread will remain open for a few days.
