UPDATE: Okay so today he isn't so squinty BUT the ear looks to be draining and smells quite icky. It also looks like there is more of the hard puss building up in there(could it be yeast?? our lab gets painful yeast infections in his ears).... I am not sure what else to do for him, he's being a good boy & drinking all of his antibiotic water and still eating good(but refuses treats). He's drank 2 quarts of medicated water since yesterday. I haven't been to the feed store to check for poultry ear drops, but do you guys think they will help clear it up faster? Okay, this is a FIRST for me! Bommie(Bombay), my Self Blue Drakelet, has developed a serioue ear infection. At first I thought he just had a gunky eye because he was squinty on that side for a couple days but today while i was cleaning the coop he came in and i saw a white spot on the side of his head... it looked like a chicken earlobe & was maybe 1/4" wide. I scooped him up and sure enough it was icky puss stuff and was hurting him pretty bad. I got a lot off out there then came inside and cleaned it more with a Q-tip and peroxide. He's on a towel in the kitchen with some food & water with Tertacycline. What else can I do for him?? I have never had a duck with an ear infection so i am clueless... should i put a little Neosporin(no pain) inside his ear? it's pretty bad looking still.
