I have a full bloodied boxer ive noticed the last couple of days he holds his hear sideways and is shaking his head. Looking in his ear he has alot of discharge in his ear and it seems sore to touch. My question is he had the same problem about 6 weeks ago and i took him to the vet. they gave him some ointment called entederm and i was told to put the ointment in his ear. The question i have is can i start using this same ointment in his ear and if so can someone tell me the aount that should be placed in his ear and how many times a day i should do this and for how long? I through away the box with the instructions on it. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
