Question

12 year old Siberian Husky: she has had an ear infection for 16 months. Have seen 3 different vets numerous times. Culture ID'd as bacterial. She has been on 3 different ear meds and we clean her ear (right) every day. Ear oozes brown sticky fluid continually. Desperate for help!

Answer

You may need to find someone that can look with a video otoscope for evidence of a middle ear infection, which is likely in a dog with an ear infection that long. If the dog has not been treated for allergic skin disease, that may need to be done also to decrease the inflammation in the ear canals. Depending on where you live, there may be a veterinary dermatologist that can help you.
