Note: There are times when a vet visit is wise and prudent. Sometimes ear pain is not due to fungal, viral, or bacterial infections. A trip to the vet would be wise if you have any doubts. However, if you are sure this is just a run-of-the-mill ear infection, then you should try the solutions above. It is great to have them at your disposal, and it really is cost-saving. Many people have spent hundreds of dollars trying to treat chronic ear infections in their animals. Using cleaners plus the above solutions may be the answer you are looking for. In this economy, they were the answer for me.
If the wound is small and superficial (like a scrape) then you may be able to treat it by carefully cleaning the wound with a product like gentle iodine or chlorhexine. A topical ointment such as Neosporin can be applied two or three times daily until healed.

Seek veterinary care as soon as possible as deep lacerations can become infected leading to more serious complications. For deep lacerations the veterinarian will clip and clean around the area and close the wound with sutures. A course of antibiotics are often prescribed with deep lacerations.
