Oh no! An old dog is one of the worst things. Lilly was my first dog, and has always been there for me. Shes got problems with her ears, a chronic yeast infection we just cant seem to get rid of, lumps on her belly, and shes lost 20% of her body wieght in the last year, and the doctor thinks it might be an iron deficiency, a parasite or cancer... I just dont know what id do without her!
I had a ferret once i got off of craigslist who had ear mites, though i didnt know,a nd they got into his inner ear canal, and started affecting his brain. I brought him to the vet and they treated him, but i ended up with a paraplegic ferret i had to syringe feed. when he got a little better, he would turn mean with no notice, just pettringhim for like an hour, and all of a sudden hed attack you viciously. but i loved that ferret! After the treatment, it took him a while to go to the bathroom, and when he did, i praised him so much that everytime he saw me, hed drag himself to the litter box and poop!
