http://www.dogchannel.com/dog-news/2010/04/05/fda-approves-drug-for-dog-ear-infections.aspx

Particularly otitis externa, the FDA has approved a new drug for the treatment of the latter mentioned. The new product is called (I think?) Posatex Otic Suspension and made by InterVet. The link above states that dogs 30 pounds or less should have 4 drops daily and anything above 30 lbs should have 8.

Its not an over the counter drug though, and has to be ordered through a licensed vet.

Thank you for sharing that with us! I'm glad they have a new medication for that dreadful ear infection. Smile How do you prevent ear infection anyway?

You prevent it by being on top of your dog's ear health and hygiene.
