My dog has Arthritis in his Back end. I`ve been Using Arthro ionix for quite some time, and it helps A Lot. But he seemed to be in pain, so I took him to His Vet. That made EVERYTHING much Worse! He got Carprofren, & a Homeopathic calming liquid. WORSE. ITCHY ears, pain. Got Gentizol, two days later, Dexamethasone. Still have itch. 4 DR visits in a week! But at least I can touch his ears now. Wiped them yesterday with Peroxide, then early a.m., I used the Gentizol. WORSE!!! What can I do? His dr & Ido not seem to be making him completely better. 1 step foward, two steps back!! HE is suffering. Very restless. Very bad night for both of us!

Make sure your dog is doing OK with the Carprofen. You might want to Google it's side effects. I would give DERMA-IONX orally. I usually split the dose and give a half dose twice daily. If you are giving ARTHRO-IONX too, give it a different time. I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9.

   What kind of food, treats, and water are you giving?  

   If the ears are still getting dirty I would try some Zymox Otic 1 %.  Your veterinarian might get it for you or you might be able to order it online.  The ears are not cleaned for the first week.  Then they are cleaned and a decision is made whether  to continue for a while later.

Your veterinarian might need to help you with the cleaning.
