Hello there and welcome to the morning of September 13th. Dr.Paul Brazzell here. I have thirty years of small animal experience.
I am sorry that you are having troubles with your pet, I can understand how this must be stressful for you. I will do my utmost best to help you
My job here is to determine whether or not he or she needs to be examined and diagnostic tests run or if we can manage things at home
I will do my best to sort things out for you and give you my professional advice based on the history and clinical signs
Talking by phone allows me to give a more accurate and rapid assessment of the problem
And the more information I have the better the job I can do
Please be patient with me as it takes time to write detailed recommendations :) and IF you have any additional questions or do not understand any of my advice please let me know.
Please confirm that you are there and ready to begin
Good morning and welcome to Just Answer. Very pleased to meet you :)
Can you send me photos of the ear canal?
No problem I can give you some suggestions on how to manage this at home if you are not able to get into clinic
Mix one part white vinegar with two parts water
Fill ear canal and massage well for a minute then let shake head
Repeat 2X daily for 5- 6 days
Buy some Zymox on chewy.com or at the local pet store and put in ears after each flush
Make sure it is the one with hydrocortisone in it
Update me in 3-4 days time
It was my sincere pleasure to have helped you today
I will leave the conversation link open in case you have more questions
I will look for your updates on a go forward basis and stay with you till this is all sorted out
