Secondary ear problems such as secondary infections, self injury and the development of generalized illness are possible. In the case of tumors and/or blockage of the ear, along with common symptoms a dog may also exhibit signs such as an unusual gait and in coordination while walking. A dog may also experience hearing problems, thus may not respond to commands or the dog will show aggressiveness.
Steroids can be injected or taken orally so that they circulate and influence the entire body—systemic steroids—or they can be used topically. Topical steroids are safer than injected or oral steroids because so little is absorbed that the possibilities of side effects are minimal. Examples of prescription systemic steroids include Prednisone and Methylprednisolone . Examples of prescription topical steroids include eye drops such as Prednisolone Acetate Ophthalmic Suspension (for dogs), hair conditioner (ResiCort®), or Genesis Topical Spray (for dogs).
