I keep treating it and it clears up then comes back he now has a very bad smell that I can’t wash away can I give him clindamycin?
My dog had the same problem. I took him to the vet to get treated for that. They would clean them out and then put some type of medicine in them and his ears would be oily for about a day or 2 but it would help. They gave him they cytopoint injection and did a culture. I had to go a couple of times for them to do a culture but it helped clear it up.
Occasionally a resistant bacteria will be isolated that requires additional culturing
beyond the initial routine culture. This additional culturing will help pinpoint the most
effective medication to use for your pet's infection.
