Another vote for food as likely the culprit. The problem with administering antibiotics is that it doesn't address the underlying cause; it may clear up but will come back. Some of the most common allergies are grains and soy. Not sure what you are feeding so tough to tell. A food trial eliminating grains may help, but realize it can take up to 3 or 4 months to resolve the issue. A mix of half apple cider vinegar and half non chlorinated water is a very effective ear wash; clean at least daily while trying to determine the actual cause. There are effective natural and homeopathic remedies that are very safe and inexpensive.
