I really hope that you can get to the bottom of this and please don't give up...trust your gut!
The watery eyes/nose could simply be allergies...my dogs suffer from them all summer. Might not have anything to do with the ears at all. I have always (on vets recommendation) given them Benedryl for that. Benedryl and Gravol have the same active ingredient so hopefully it will at least help with that.
Don't know if you checked the pics in my VD thread on Ginger but we kept her in her harness for probably a month, if not longer, to be able to steady her easily in the house and up and down stairs etc. She is not in crisis in this pic but here is her harness...
Mum to Ziggy (6) and Zuzu (5), Zoey (8) and Raggzy (3) Keena (2)...my own little Heaven!
Ginger and Hobo at the Bridge (Valentine's Day 2011) but NEVER forgotten <3...
"I have sent you on a journey to a land free from pain, not because
I did not love you, but because I loved you too much to force
you to stay" ♥ ♥
We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness.
It is here on earth and has four legs!
