Please help me... I cant afford to take my dog to the vet, She is just a puppy with a swollen ear flap. This swollen ear flap does not hurt her but it is hot. I think it is full of infection. Can I cut open her ear and clean it myself. PLEASE HELP ME - Thank you
I wouldnt cut the ear open, but I would give her some cephalexin or amoxicillan. Look in your medicine cabinet for antibiotics. The same antibiotics we use, are the same they give for dogs. Or if you dont have any go to www.revivalanimal.com and search for antibiotics. They have fish antibiotics which are the same thing as well.
