    I have tried treating him with antibiotic ointment, but no luck. He has had a discharge coming from the ear. Anyone have an idea for a home remedy?

    Thanks,

    If there's no blood in the discharge, try this:

    Blue Power Ear Wash Recipe:

    16 Oz. Isopropyl Alcohol

    4 Tablespoons Boric Acid Powder

    16 Drops Gentian Violet Solution 1%

    Mix together in alcohol bottle and shake well.

    Shake this solution every time you use it to mix the Boric Acid Powder.

    Flush ears with solution as needed.

    From the source above:
    I use a large syringe with the needle removed rather than a special bottle.
    They can be found at Tractor Supply or online and come in a wide size range.
