When I hear a story like this, I'm glad that Canada has health care. Before, down in S.Ont where I lived, a wait at the ER/hosp. is long but now that I live in N.Ont, healthcare is FAR superior and a wait at the local hosp. is short.-usually 15 minutes--no more than an hour..but it sure makes me thankful that I'm not in the US. I hope she is feeling better soon---an earache is a very painful thing.
Edited to say: I also just thought of tea tree oil...or oil of oregano--would any of those work? Is that what you mean by 'sweet oil'? Have you any amoxillin on hand for infections? You can purchase some from KV Vet Supply (kvvetsupply.com) under Fish antibiotics.

1/2 alcohol & 1/2 vinegar solution. 2 to 3 times a day and after baths. Drip in ear, then tip your head and drain. (I put enough to fill my ear.) When my ear is screaming at me, it takes a day or so for it to calm down, and then, maybe 3 days and my ear is back to normal.
Alcohol sterilizes and dries the ear out.
Vinegar combats bacteria and other nasties.
Sweet oil is olive oil.
God's, are Life.

Ann~ I use straight alcohol for at least the past 20 years (probably more). I swam competitively in Middle and High School and taught and lifeguarded for years. Summers were spent on the water as well so I just made it a habit. I haven't had problems in a long time but I also had a ruptured eardrum at one point.
I tried to do the hair dryer trick when I dried her hair and she was so upset I couldn't tell if it helped her.
