    Ears got worse after treatment
    ksiano posted:
    my 13 year old beagle mix always has dark gunk in her ears and has periodically been treated for yeast. this time when i took her to the vet, her ears after several days of treatment with cream med and flush became fire red inside, and ulcerated. I took her back and they changed her meds. but still four days later on steroid and pain meds i dont see any improvement. how did this happen? its as if she was burned by the first set of meds. i also noticed hearing loss. i feel so horrible for my poor dog.
