Ear Infection?

Yesterday Kasey smelled so bad I gave her a bath. This morning I noticed the same smell on her and it is coming from her left ear. I called the vet and for some reason their office is closed today so I am not sure what to do. Is it ok to wait until tomorrow or should I call another vet and try to get her a appt? A few weeks ago I had her to the vet and she had yeast in her ears but this is different. It looks clean not red and she really isn't scratching at it but I can smell it as soon as she walks near me. I did clean it with ear cleaner and that did nothing. Thanks for any advice.

I don't think there is any harm in waiting another day, especially if it is not bothering her.

I use, polysporin eye drops, they don't have the anesthetic in them that the ear drops do, and monistat ovules mixed together and applied with a q- tip, after cleaning the ear. It has always worked for me. If it is not bothering her, it should not hurt to wait a day to see the vet
