What did the vet say, Henny!?
Aww poor baby. Hope Tate feels better soon. You can continue to keep his ear clean, and you could try some over the counter Polysporin ear drops from the drugstore, until you can get to the vets. I know some people give baby aspirin for the pain, but I'm not sure what the dose is, so I would ask the vet first, or maybe someone on here knows how much is safe to give to a dog. Good luck, and keep us posted on how he's doing. Sending love, hugs and prayers your way.
LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
im late and dunno if you have been to the vets but you can put apple cider vinegar in the ear. here is what it said
A dog or cat with an ear infection will continually scratch at it's ear. They may also seem lethargic or simply not want to play as much. Dogs and cats with ear infections may become irritable toward other pets or humans. Upon inspection of the animal's ear you will notice an odor as well as a visible dark and waxy build up.
How do I use apple cider vinegar to treat my pet's ear infection?
You will need assistance with treating a pet ear infection as it will be painful for your pet at first. Have your assistant restrain the cat or dog. Clean the outer ear with a cotton swab dabbed in apple cider vinegar. Remove as much wax as possible without entering the ear canal. Now use an eye dropper to place a few drops of apple cider vinegar in the ear. Repeat daily until all signs of infection are gone.
thanks all! Well, Tate let me get a little closer to his ear this a.m. Little guy sees me with the witch hazel and the cotton pad and he runs under the bed! But i managed to "sweet talk" him to get a little gunk out. Still, we'll see the vet tonight after work just to make sure. I just don't want to take any chances w/his ears and the infection possibly getting any worse. He slept really well thru the night tho...not one peep out of him!
Poor Tate. I hope he starts feeling better soon. Harlea sends hugs and kisses his way.
Just checking on you both!
Hopefully Tate will start feeling better soon ; )

Tate got his ear flushed out at the vet's office last night. I just need to put in some antibiotic ointment once a day and then she'll re-check him in a week. So, I think he's doing pretty well and hasn't been fussing w/his ear lately
Latest issue is he peed in bed last night at 11pm, then he threw up his dinner (or was it the other way around)?! All I know is, I was very bleary-eyed as I changed the sheets and wiped stuff down. I think it's from the Sentinel tablet I gave him earlier. If it's not one thing, it's another!!
@cali baker YES!! Happy is Good!
If it's not 1 thing it's 20 others especially in the middle of the night.
