    Default Ah-Oh here we go again...

    Vegas is not acting like Vegas for the last two days, sleeping more than normal, not eating right away, but eventually eating, drinking lots of water. I have an appt. Friday morning at 9 with our Vet, thinking another inner ear infection. No smell like before, but behavior like before.

    I took him on Monday to get his nails dremmeled and had them do a ear cleaning. He does need his anal glands done anyway. I have a suspicion it is his ear again. Why after almost a year and a good food change, would he get two ear infections?? Not saying he has one, but his behavior is the same as the last time. Could our high pollen count give him ear infections?? I know it messes with both our eyes, and I have been giving him Benadryl as needed. But do you think that it could also cause ear infections??

    I started him on his Otomax ear drops tonight from the last infection, I dont think it will hurt him if he does not have an ear infection, what do you think?? I don't want to medicate him if it is not needed.

    My son got ear infections constantly as a child. Both from colds and allergies, the doctors said it was because he didn't blow his nose enough. I'd imagine it could be the same with Vegas. If you try to teach him to blow his nose I want video.

    Awwww, poor Vegas. I don't know if a high pollen count could cause an inner ear infection, but I know pollen raises heck with the eyes and nose and they are all connected. Is he shaking his head and scratching his ears? Did they get a lot of gunk out when he had his ears cleaned? If his ear med is an antibiotic I wouldn't use it for fear of him building up a resistence to it. The heat in Flordia would lower his energy level and make him thirsty. I wish you guys would share some of that heat with us. We didn't quite make it to 50 degrees today in N.E. Oregon. I hope Vegas is feeling better!

    Oh, no...not again..poor guy! I don't know if another ear infection or not. I would think that pretty bad allergies would raise the amount of mucous though. And as someone said, ears and nose are connected. Let us know what the vet says.

    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    Poor Vegas! Poorer Kelly! I know for a fact allergies can cause ear infections in kids! Can't see why it couldn't do the same for Vegas! Good thing you watch him like a hawk! You know..maybe the first time he was also showing v.e.r.y early signs like this time...but you didn't realize it then! Good luck and will be thinking good Vegas thoughts!!

    Yep I agree with Jakeisgreat could very well be the same way it all happened last time and you didnt know. What a good mama you are to catch it right away! I also have left over ear drops from an ear infection cuty had a long time ago and his ear turned red inside all of a sudden and I used them and it healed up. Never went to the vet cuz he never showed any signs but his ears are never red inside so I thought it must have been. Anyhow, I am not a fan of meds BUT in this case using the drops I dont think will hurt any. Poor thing, maybe you will heal him up before the vets.

    Oh no! Poor Vegas I think using the drops from last time is a good idea. You have recognised the signs and are doing everything you can to get him well again. Your a great momma Kelly

    If you are not, you should give him plain yogurt after giving him antibiotics. Antibiotics kill bio, bad and good, and yogurt helps build the good bio back up.

    @BruceP, Vegas gets yogurt about 3 times a week as his snack, the Otomax in an antibiotic ear drop. He is definately going in the morning, If I could get someone to cover my shift I would take him today. He got up and threw up bile and has not ate and we have been up since 7. Our vet closes at 5 and I get off at 5, now I will be nervous all day worrying about him while I am at work. No smell coming from his ear, no itching, nothing...he is just listless and laying around. He only threw up once about 7:15 a.m. so that was two hours ago and he is sitting here wanting a bite of my breakfast so that part is normal. I hate going to work knowing this!!!!
