Less than a week ago I posted about Captain...my boxer who turns ten next month . He has DM however otherwise healthy... Recently he developed an ear lobe hematoma.. a blister like swelling. I decided to take him to the vet and they found his first ever ear infection.... They cleaned his ears and prescribed Prednisone and Pattotic otic suspension(ear drops). Just days later he is completely deaf.. his hearing was perfect just a week ago.. website shows deafness can be a side effect however may be temporary.. anyone ever have this happen... This has been a terrible year for Captain... His DM is progressing and he is such an amazing dog

We have had chronic ear yeast infections in one of our boxers and used lots of drops but never had a problem. This was in our Ginger. She is 9 now. We haven't had any more ear problems since we found out the foods she is allergic or intolerant to.
I am curious about your boys DM. Does it cause pain for the Dog? I hope he is doing well.
