Ear Mites

The results of my visit, ear mites.  Bowsers, that sounded like no fun.  Doc told us that is very common in Key West, and he was amazed that Essex and Deacon never had them.  Dad caught the mites fairly early, so no infection.

Doc gave Dad ear drops for me and Great Auntie Essex.  I get two applications for the first week, then twice a week the next two weeks.  Great Auntie Essex just gets the drops twice a week for two weeks, because she didn't have them little critters. 

Dad put some drops in this evening and has noticed that I'm not shaking my head as much.  Probably because those mites aren't bothering me.  The following link talks about ear mites: http://www.petmd.com/dog/conditions/infectious-parasitic/c_dg_ear_mites

Have a pawsome weekend,

Sherman

Ear mites are not fun.....I am thinking you probably got them from another pup visiting angel paws. The medicine will clear them up in not time

Glad the vet was able to diagnose the problem. We agree with Reilly ..they may have come from another doggie at angel paws.

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Time sure flies. Almost one year old already. Glad that your dad caught the ear mites early. 2 months back, I had ear infection and it took about 2-3 weeks to clear with the proper meds.

Oh no! It seems the "dog park" doggies are dealing with ailments (Leo takes worm meds again in three weeks).
