I have a question for Jackie or Jaimie. Anyone else is free to jump in, too. Jolie had an ear infection about 9 months ago and the vet gave her Tri-Otic. I used it for the whole course of treatment and it cleared the infection up. She was at the groomer today who mentioned that she wasseems to be starting with an ear infection. I noticed some gunk last night when I was brushing her, so this confirmed that thought. I will call the vet tomorrow morning to see if she can come in, but meanwhile I still have that tube of Tri-Otic that is more than half full. If she seems to be in any discomfort and I can't see the vet, can I use that medication. I'm not trying to self diagnose, I just want to make sure that I have something to use before I head into the weekend. The ears were MUCH worse last time, but the color of the discharge is the same brownish color and stinky.
