erm its clean aural we gt it from the rspca vet

You don't want it getting infected - so try and either wait it out until tomorrow, or if you're really concerned pay a fortune for an emergency vet. Good luck.

sounds like the vets need to take a scraping of the ear canal if it is a prelonged infection as their must be a reason why it is not clearing properly.
Deff get her to the vets asap.

if you have any natracalm or the likes that might calm her down and stop her from itching the ear quite as much............most pet shops sell them, their used on bonfire night and the likes to keep pets calm during fireworks.

Do you mean canaural, a yellow liquid in a little bottle? Thats not ear cleaner thats ear treatment. Whats the name of the cleaner then i can advise you next.

i think they mean a wound infection from scratching actually!
:whistling:

Try thornit works wonders even when the vets very exspensive stuff doesnt

the little bottle would do fine, as its pretty big. It goes on the outer bit of the ear then rub it smells like a denist but is very good, our rescue had very dodgy ears when we got him used this and now use it onces a month and his been clear for 5months

Lampshade on the head to stop him scratching it.

I don't mean the inner ear, I mean the skin from all the scratching, devil-dog lover.

What vets you using? Kirkham is open. Although it will be very sore, its not life threatening to go today and tomorrow will be fine. In the mean timeuse warm water cotton wool balls to clean the wax, then dry THOROUGHLY with kitchen roll ( not cotton wool as u may leave some inside the canal) NEVER use the same piece of paper/cotton wool for the other ear, then if you have a "lampshade" then use that, otherwise occupy him with a bone, games etc to stop him scratching.
