I recommend that you talk to your veterinarian about this question. Ear infections can be caused by a few different things and the treatment that will work best will depend on the underlying cause and severity of the infection. Ideally, it is best to have him examined prior to any treatment. If you can have him examined before Thursday that would be ideal. The biggest concern would be if the ear drum is intact or not. If the ear drum is ruptured some treatments can cause hearing damage if not used properly. Your veterinarian knows your pet and his medical history and will be able to advise you if there is something that can be done until your pet can be seen.
