My other half brought the poor little girl to the vet today. She was favouring her left ear all weekend, so I thought I would give them a cleaning, hoping it would help. Nope. sad
Turns out she has a yeast infection the vet thinks is secondary to her allergies. He's not ruling out her possibly getting more in the future sad which makes me feel so sorry for her.
On a brighter note, she was weighed while there. She's 8 months old and a whopping 66 lbs! The vet says she's "right on track" for growth. I'm so glad we're feeding her enough for her energy level. :D

I think we all have been there not realizing our pooch has an infected ear. sad It took me to realize when he started to scratch his ear and yelp. I felt so sorry for him.
Wow what a big girl you have. :p Here's to her having quick healing (((vibes))).

Yeah, my baby is a big girl. Her Sire is called "large", and I've been in the same room as him as he ran up to me to be petted. I think "large" is an understatement. Her Dam is a normal size, but she looks more like her pop, so Im thinking she's going to be at least 80lbs or so. :eek:
Well, one person giving her the ear drops she needs....now that's fun! NOT
She's definately going to need a bath after this is done. I missed her ear tonight and got it in her hair. Ewwww!
But on a positive note, she's not favouring her ear nearly as much. After the 10 days worth of medication is done she should be 100%! :thumbs up

When Sheriff got his ear infections (Vet says he will be prone to them.... hopefully grow out of them when he reaches adulthood... here's to hope!) the only way we could give him the drops was we'd get him to "hug" one of us. (Paw on each shoulder), then give him a cookie, and quickly the other person would lift up the ear flap and squeeze some in. He was a little monster about getting ear drops... I think cause it hurt him, for us to touch his ear :sad: . Now we have to put a preventative med in his ear about once a week.... our new technique is to soak a cotton ball with the stuff, put the cotton just slightly into his ear, and squeeze.... it wastes a lot of the med, and we have to buy more bottles than normal, but hey.... the drops go in!!
Hope your big-little girl feels better soon!!... Have fun with the drops! :p
