Mom seems to think I should be thankful today, so I am trying to feel good about this whole ear thing.
I am happy to report that there has been no more head shaking since my visit to the V.E.T. BUT let me tell you it was not a fun trip.
Ciara, stop laughing at me. You are lucky you weren't the one they were sticking things in. I had scopes in my ears, Q-tips in my ears, plungers thingies in my ears, AND something stuck in that place under my tail that is off limits to humans in MY opinion.
The good news is that I found out there are NO earworms in there, no water, no bugs, and no potatoes. We hope that makes Madi and Tweedles feel better since they were concerned about water and potatoes. And my temp is normal. I could have told them that without them having to stick that thing you-know-where. What they DID find is a small amount of "debris" and some YEAST - I don't know what that is, but I sure hope it disappears soon. The vet says it might just be an isolated infection, but there is also the chance it is allergy-related. If things aren't all hunky dory by next week, then I have to get some steroid drops in my ears too - no way, I say!!!
That bottle on the floor in front of us is the magic potion to help eradicate that YEAST!!!
YIKES - I see TWO of those plunger thingies. And a bottle of Mometmax. Whatever, I just hope it works to the max.
Hear me ROAR - I am not too happy about Mom sticking those things in my ears. In fact, she made the V.E.T. do it yesterday. She says it is no easy feat to get me to hold still long enough to do my ears. So if any of your peeps want to take a road trip, head on over and lend her a few helping human paws.
Now I might be persuaded to cooperate a little better if Mom can find a lot of that salmon jerky I spy on the counter to share with me:)
Thanks to all for the many good thoughts you sent my way.
