    AWESOME!! That Claro is great.... I see it in Lambeau's future as the summer kicks in, dandelions, grass and pine trees are going to be tough to avoid

    Quick Rocco update: went to the vet, right ear infection. I asked about claro. Very said they use claro more for dogs who are repeat infection offenders. As this was roccos first, they prescribed and treated with osurina. First dose was yesterday and next Thursday I take him back for second. Much improvement. He's no longer shaking his head and he slept like a wildebeest last night (the snoring was enough to tell lol) right through the baby's cries

    Thank you to everyone who had input!

    Brutus is good. acting normal except he is eating funny. Almost looks like he has a sore throat and is having trouble swallowing. He has an appetite and is eating but it takes him forever to finish his bowl when normaly he scarfs it down. I am calling the vet this morning to run it past him.

    @brutus77 What did the vet say about Brutus? Sore throat, bad tooth?

    I did not call as my daughter reports he ate well this morning and at a much more normal rate of speed. I am going to assume that the infection was just so bad that it was painful for him to chew and swallow.

    So update on Brutus is, he still is eating very slow. I called the vet and he said to give him an aspirin for three days and see if it relieves his discomfort. He doesnt think it has to do with the ear infection. If there is no improvement, Brutus has to be admitted to the hospital for sedation to check his throat and teeth. I really dont think it is his teeth because he chews his bones like a champ on both sides of his mouth. If he had a cracked or abscessed tooth, I think he would not chew his bones right?? Of course I go right to the thought of tumor in his throat or something equally devastating! I do not see any lumps or feel anything though, so I am now on day two of aspirin therapy. Any thoughts???

    Based on what you have said, I agree can't be a tooth. have you tired some soft food to see how he reacts/eats that?
