Never take Ear infections for granted

My beagle Fiona has been suffering from recurrent ear infections mostly caused by yeast. I was cleaning her ears last Monday because I noticed she's started to have another ear infection coming up. I used the medicine that the vet gave me for her last ear infection. I treated it for 3 days but it just got worse so I had to bring her to the vet.

I was glad I brought Fiona to the vet because the infection was caused by a bacteria and the medicine I was using was for a previous yeast infection that she had. The vet prescribed antibacterial ear drops and an oral antibiotic.

I just realized that at the first sign of an ear infection, I should have brought Fiona to the vet because ear infections especially of the middle and inner part of the ear are risky and can lead to serious complications.

I'm learning so much from you folks. I'm interested with the yogurt and other probiotics. Much safer that way than having to put on antibiotics immediately.
