Our expert says:
Mercurochrome is not a good idea. If the drops aren't working there are two most likely reasons. 1. the wrong drops have been prescribed or 2. the drops are not being applied correctly. If you are sure you are getting the drops into the ear canal and you are cleaning the ear each time before you add new drops and there is no improvement, please return to your vet so they can take a sample from the ear and send it to the lab to determine which drops should be used. Please remember to ensure that the dropper of the ear drop bottle does not contact the ear canal or the whole bottle can become contaminated.
