The other day I noticed this ugly, nasty "plug" in my Silkie's ear. Ewww. Poor baby. She must have had an ear infection going on for a long time. She is getting better now. But this is what it looked like: So I carefully pulled this thing off/out. It left a gaping hole in her ear. I flushed & cleaned it out as best I could. This is what the plug looks like I clean it out every night with a warm peroxide/water solution, then pack the hole with neosporin. I put 100mg of Amoxicilling in her drinking water, along with vitamins. She is perking up well. This is what it looks like now And this is her feeling better.
