Possible ear infection?
 
He's showing all signs, whining when ear touched, itching it, Etc. I'm going to bring him to the vet soon, he hasn't been putting his left ear up (the one that's bothering him as much) they're usually both up at the same time now it isn't. Any one else go through this? Let me know!

Yup, sounds like an ear infection. My dog just had one.

Vet SOON? Get to the vet ASAP. As in, call this morning and see if you can make an appointment.

Sounds like an ear infection. Could be bacteria, could be yeast. They need to do a cytology, look under a microscope, then prescribe the best medication. You don't want to sit and wait on an ear infection, it could easily cause the ear drum to rupture and damage to the inner ear.

Put Zymox in it. Problem solved. Far and away the most effective ear infection treatment that ever existed

Hunterisgreat....i would think op would want the vet to check the ear, would hate to see him take your advice, wait a few days and end up with a deaf ear or the dogs equalibrium screwed up for life. just an opinion.

I had multiple vets try to treat a persistent infection on my female for a year without success. Zymox fixed it in 4 days, confirmed by cytology by the vet. There is a reason it has thousands of 5 star ratings. I've let others borrow my bottle and resolved 20+ others infections too

But go to the vet if you wish and go on a course of antibiotics

Interesting on the Zymox. My dog always has itchy ears. My question would be the active ingredient is Hydrocortisone 0.5%. That stuff is great for relief it doesn't cure. What else as far as active ingredients that I cant seem to find would cure the problem.

Hydrocortisone is not good for long term use. Is this stuff to be used often or only at signs of a problem?

i have no doubt the most of the time zymox is good stuff, but i would rather have a c&s if needed rather than chance any damage to the ear. just my opinion. i literally spent thousands on my gsd ear infection, nothing including the zymox worked.

Just found it without Hydrocortisone as well. Might be worth a shot for me

Thanks
