try Penicillin...2 times a day for 5 days...1 cc per 20# Sub Q...be sure to pull the plunger back before you inject..if you see blood..re adjust and try again..no blood means good to go...
Sometimes the infection is mild and no smell is present..but the fact its getting worse and green is good cause to put him on antibiotics..just in case...

No, neomycin is for gut related bacteria like E coli....you will need to use Penicillin or Tylan 200 both are Sub Q

Pen is 1 cc per 20# twice daily for 5 days
Tylan 200 is 1 cc per 25# twice daily for 5 days

OK hubby just came in and told me steweys ears are bad meaning when you like rub them they feel "gushy" like there is fluid in them. And the crusty stuff is like almost neon green! He acts fine but should I give him some LA-200? Thats all I got and if so I really don't wanna give him a shot!!!

Thanks, Misty

Some lamanchas are just waxy...theres no getting around it...I would massage the ear well and work it all out cleaning it as you go...do this several times a day...my feelings is, if he is not running a temp, there is no order coming from the ear then I would just keep it clean...and watch it..if it does seem infected...then Penicillin is a better choice then La 200...and it doesnt sting : )

1 cc per 20# Sub Q..pull back the plunger before you inject...if you see blood re adjust and try again...no blood means good to go...
