Ear Infections

My poor Joey. I took him to the vet to get a "flush" for his ears and he is having a bad reaction! His canals are inflamed and his cartilage is inflamed and he is miserable. Guess how miserable I am!!! I had to take him to another vet last night because I was so alarmed at the sight of those ears! He got an anti inflamation shot and 3 other medications. I only wanted to have his ears cleaned and this has turned into the biggest mess and Joey is in so much pain!! And this looks better than it did last night!

Oh I am so sorry to hear about Joey! I can hear your fear. I really understand what worrying about our doggies is about! This is most alarming! Max had an ear infection this week, but certainly not like Joeys. (They only gave him ointment to put in and massage)
Im praying that Joey will soon improve. Sending lots of love and get well wishes.

Poor Joey! What happened? Were his ears dirty?
I think the less you mess with the ears,the better!
(at least this has worked for me)

Joey -
We feel your pain. We have to have our ears flushed out and cleaned after every visit to Del Mar Dog Beach or one of us gets the nasty ear. I bet your momma can learn how to do it and it might help you out and skip the vet.
