    Default Brutus is sick

    My poor baby has a raging ear infection, allergy induced I'm sure as it high allergy season for him. It came out of left field with none of the usual symptoms. Sunday I was literally on the verge of rushing him to the ER Vet. He started shaking his head late Saturday night so I started his antibiotic drops I always have on hand but by Sunday morning he was vomiting and walking around with a crooked head. He started drooling and panting around dinner time and of course I panicked. I gave him an aspirin and waited a bit and he seemed to calm down a bit. The vet came today and gave him a shot for pain and loaded both ears with Claro, a new antibiotic that lasts a month at a time. He didn't really want to eat dinner. It looked like he was having trouble chewing but the vet explained all the nerves and muscles in the neck and face are effected with a bad ear infection. So tonight the baby is resting with his mommy and hopefully by tomorrow he will feel better. He isn't even playing with his Bally . Christine, @2BullyMama, didn't Lambeau just get a dose of Claro? How is it working for him? Here is my sick little boy....

    yes I believe Christine used that same ear med.

    Hope Brutus is back to his old self in no time. Good luck to you. If you were close by I would have bought you a nice drink, a very big one. Dealing with a sick family member is always an awful one.
    Hug your bully today

    I'm pretty sure it was Claro… you know I had Bella ears packed every 6 mos and it REALLY made a difference. I'm SO sorry about Brutus, I hope that he feels better soon Rosalie

    @brutus77 .... Yes, Claro. It is a full month and his ears are still clear, just some wax. Make sure you do NOTHING fir 3 weeks... No cleaning, no drops... I was struggling with that as i 'knew' they needed cleaning because it is a daily chore with Lambeau due to his allergies

    Big hugs and kisses to Bru... Hope he is doing better this morning

    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.
