Q. Can I use tacrolimus in ears. Dog has had systemic fungal infection 2 yrs ago and is now under control. Ear is closed and meds difficult to admin.

A. Don't apply any meds without consulting the specialist. Otoscopic exam is necessary to check what is going on with the ear. If there is a demage of eardrum many drugs given into the ear can lead to hear loss.
