This is Scott's wife, Karen. I know Scott's concerned about Barclay's ears. We got him fixed about 6 months ago and had a cherry eye repair on the same visit. It took 5 workers at the vet to hold him down when they gave him the meds to calm him down before they took him in. He's really strong! Butchko did a great job on the cherry eye surgery.
Shaking his head? I feel so sorry for him when he shakes his head at night. It seems to be some liquid from the inner ears. I usually use a tissue and softly twist it in the ears to get the liquid out and his ears dry. As soon as I do that, he goes right back to sleep. Unfortunately, he wakes up about 2 to 3 times per night and I'll have to do this. He seems to enjoy the relief.
I need to get him back into Butchko soon. Thanks for all your help!
please go get a second and third opinion, because he will give himself blood clots in the ears then become a cauliflower ear, , watch his ears for swelling, because he will need to be drained quickly. - there must be something going on ! go to a specialist please. ASAP
what a sweetheart, I have had two big boys, no three. right around the 70 to 75 lb mark, Buff too, but big.
let me know what is going on. and -- what kind of food is he on? allergies to food start in the ears and paws usually.
If you have a question regarding dog food, or behavior! call or e-mail me anytime.
