Back From the Vets

I called the vet as soon as thier office had opened this morning. I had an appointment booked for the afternoon (was almost late as well). My poor girl has a yeast infection in her ear, with a ten day course of action. The good is she loves seeing her doctor and we quickly went over her over all health too. She did piddle though while she was sitting in the room, I think it happened either when he did the swab test or when the cleaner was first but in. 

It’s a vets office but I was still embarrassed ha-ha. She’s never done that before but I imagine her ear canal is very sensitive right now. I am still shocked how in less than seven days it had gotten so bad. It was clean and smelt fine last Sunday before I wiped them out. Oh well I knew this was going to happen at least once in her life time. Plus the dogs have thier dewormers now.

My Poor Galaxy

It is late Thursday (May 26) as I am starting this post. I was checking her ears as I wipe them out on the weekends. Well it looks like she has an infection in one of her ears. We immediately came in to the house and I found the ear wipes. I quickly cleaned the normal looking ear and moved onto her other.

She did not seem to be to interested in having me touch her ear (I can understand that). Once I moved to gently wiping the canal area she moved in towards my hand. I kept wiping with new cloths until they came out nearly clean. She did keep shaking her head after. So, I gave her a gently massage and pinned her ear up. Now she is laying in her regular corner.

Morning can not come fast enough. I will be calling the vets office as soon as they open to see if there is anything I can grab in town. I will not be in the vet’s area until Tuesday when I have my doctors appointment. This also means I cannot bring her with me either. They have always been great at helping me decide whether or not the dogs actually need to come in (sometimes I do overreacted but better to be safe than sorry). This is her first ear problem and I feel so bad. Anytime anything happens to the dogs I feel at a complete loss. I am constantly reassured that everything has been normal and I cannot prevent everything. That’s not how I feel though.
