I'm sure there is dog clinics that will take in dogs for those who cannot afford to pay. There should be places in your area, or just simply call the vet and ask.. (04/23/2007)

Call your vet. The dog probably needs antibiotics and you will need a prescription for those. Your vet may have free samples. Won't hurt to call and explain your situation. Maybe he will let you pay later. (04/24/2007)
I would definitely bring him to the vet and explain your situation. Ear infections are painful for your dog and can cause long term damage. You shouldn't fool around with home remedies when your dog is in need of medical treatment. (04/24/2007)
It won't hurt to put a little peroxide in the ear and let it sit a while. DON'T use a q-tip. You can put a little sweet oil in his ear also. An Asprin for the pain every 6 hr won't hurt him either. My granddaughter works for a vet, and this is what she told me.. (04/24/2007)
The mixture of vinegar, alcohol and water will work. I have used it not only on my dogs, but in my own ear also. (04/24/2007)
I have worked for a Veterinarian for over 25 years. PLEASE take you fur baby to his Dr.. He is probably in pain. He will need an exam and antibiotics. Good luck to you. Hugs to your baby. (04/24/2007)
Put about four or five drops of garlic oil into his ear several times a day. Garlic is a natural antibiotic and also will help with the pain. This can also be used for people , this is what I do for kids and animals. (04/24/2007)
We thought our rat terrier had ear mites and treated him several times with ear mite oil, but he didn't get better, so we suspected he had an ear infection. He would paw at his ear and whine. So we got some Terramyacin (an antibiotic powder) at the farm supply store. It doesn't say on the package that it is for dogs or ear infections. In fact it is a powder that one adds to chicken's water to treat them for poultry respiratory diseases, and to treat cow's for pneumonia or scours. I mixed just a pinch in a cup of milk and gave it to the dog once a day for 4 or 5 days, and the infection cleared up.

You MUST take your dog to a vet. If you can't pay to care for a sick animal, you can't afford a pet. One suggestion though, unless the vet has sample medicine for you, get a prescription for a human equivalent of the meds and fill at the cheapest local pharmacy, often WalMart or Costco. (04/24/2007)
I would suggest to go to the vet to make sure the bacteria doesn't spread and to find a cure for it faster. Even though it might be pricey, it sure is worth it. (01/12/2008)
