Doggy ear problem
Last weekend we noticed our 9 yo terrier/spaniel mix, Amy, was holding her ear out a bit funny and shaking her head. I figured right away "ear problem". It's not hurting her, in fact it must be itching since she wants us to rub it.
Tuesday afternoon I brought her to the vet. He said there's no infection, no ear mites, and her ears are clean. He said that her lymph nodes are a bit enlarged but since she is so healthy otherwise it could just be natural for her, or a touch of allergy. He gave us some drops, antibiotic pills and steroid pills.
Today she still seems no better. She's still shaking her ear, but I guess it might be from the drops themselves, they leave her ear a bit wet all the time.
Still I worry about what it might be. Any thoughts? In every other way, she is the picture of health, loads of energy, shiny coat, etc, etc. The vet wants to see her again in two weeks, so maybe it will just take time, but I don't know what to think...
We've had her for 8 1/2 years and she's never been ill before. She's our baby!
It's more important to be kind than to be important...
