How Ear Infections In Dogs Are Treated


In addition to obvious symptoms of ear infection, your veterinarian will base his diagnosis on the result of the microscopic examination of a sample of the ear discharge. There is a need to identify the type of yeast or bacteria that is present so the correct antibiotic can be used.

If the ear infection is caused by yeast, ear discharge and debris are often dark brown or black in color. But if it’s a bacterial ear infection, the debris is usually yellow-brown in color; greenish pus may also be oozing from the ears.

The treatment regimen of ear infections involves cleaning of the ears and applying ear medication that is prescribed by your vet. You will also be shown how to clean your dog’s ears at home using ear cleaning solution and medication. Always follow your San Jose, CA veterinarian’s instructions to ensure proper healing and prevent recurrence.
