I have a six and a half years old Pug who has ear problem. His ear is red with excessive wax inside it. His vet puts Ciplox-D drop and gives him anaesthetics. Please advise.

Inflammation in ear canal may occur as a simple reaction due to parasites, overgrowth of microbes or growths. It may also arise from allergic disease like atopy or endocrine or ear canal anatomical problems. Failure to address the underlying cause in a pet with ear problem dooms one to treatment failure. Your vet may advise series of tests including cytology to find out the underlying cause. Your vet can also show you how to properly clean and use ear drops at home. Keeping your pet’s ears clean is important because it helps prevent an environment in the ears that promotes inflammation.
