1284. A dwarf hamster has an itchy swollen right ear

A young couple brought in this 50-g hamster with a red hairless swollen right ear.
"He has an ear infection in the ear canal," I said. "I need to hospitalize him to reduce his swelling with medication and later to irrigate his ear canal which is now swollen and so no irrigation can be done." I said. The couple was OK with this.

Jan 1, 2014. I checked on the dwarf hamster after 2 days of medication. His ear canal is not so red and liquid yellow pus oozed out (arrow in the image).

Videos are as follows:
