Do I need to keep giving ear drops if my dog is doing better?

Don't Stop the Treatment

If your dog is diagnosed with ear mites or an ear infection, it is very important to complete treatment even if your dog appears recovered. Always continue giving your dog the medication schedule recommended by your veterinarian. Discontinuing medication before completing treatment can lead the bacteria to becoming resistant. This increases the possibility that the infection will reoccur and may require a stronger dosage of medications for a longer period of time.
