My dog has been suffering from yeast infections in his ear for quite sometime. The vet prescribed Gentizol ointment and it helps a little. I went to order some more online with it being cheaper but noticed they have it in drop form. Does it have a differently effect being in liquid form being that it probably goes down the ear canal better? I want to get the form of medicine that's going to help him best. Thank you.
Hi, A! Although the drug is equal in efficacy there is a disadvantage to both forms of the medication. The ointment can leave a sticky residue whereas the drops are more easily displaced when the pup shakes his head, lays down, etc..
Personally, I prefer the ointment form as I feel it allows more medication to stay in contact with the ear canal.
As you have discovered, yeast infections can be very persistent and difficult to treat. but essence of time is critical. If you can faithfully follow the treatment regimen you will beat this bug.
Best wishes and good luck! WildcatVet
