Hi all! Maddie's going to the vet Tuesday for x-rays of her hips since they're still bothering her, and while she's there, the vet recommended we try some kind of gel ear treatment that is supposed to last for two weeks. I guess the vet puts it in, and then over those two weeks it gets read of the yeast and heals the ear. She's had problems with recurring yeast infections in her ears in the past. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this method. Is it safe? Does it work? I tried doing some research on it and think it must be BCP b.n.t.

Never heard of a gel. Let us know how you like it. I hope the xrays provide an easy hip fix

Thanks, Debbie! I'll let you know how everything goes. I'm hoping she just needs a shot to jump start the healing process. I hate seeing her sore. :( She's in good spirits, but it still breaks my heart. My vet does offer laser therapy, and that's worked GREAT for my parents' Cockers, so that's another option if I need it. Thanks for the well-wishes! :)

The vet I use for the rescue suggested b.n.t and I have haved used in on a few of my fosters with really bad ear infections and it worked very well. It is so nice not having to put put meds in their ears 2x per day. I will definately continue to use it.
