Nova was more or less like always this morning even though I could see that her ear ached. She ate her food just as slow as she always does before I went to work. She wasn’t as always when I came home, half her head had swollen and at first I thought it was an insect bite. I called the vet and he gave me an earlier appointment.
I could see that he was worried when he saw Nova and that’s never a good sign. Her ear is full of streptococci and he think she must have scratched her ear badly, perhaps an insect bit her or some reaction from the old food she used to eat. So he wrote a prescription for two medicines, one gel that I’ll put in her ear once a week and I’m not allowed to clean the ear during the entire treatment. She will also eat some really heavy antibiotics, I actually think that’s the one that I had after my hip surgery.
I drove to the nearest pharmacy where I know they almost always have what I need for the dogs but this time they didn’t have the ear gel, so I must drive to the pharmacy in Falköping tomorrow, that’s the second one I know they almost always have what I need for my dogs. I gave Nova her pills as soon as I came back to the car (Yes she waited in the car because the weather was cool, cloudy and windy so it didn’t get warm in the car) I guess she should have eaten something before she took the pills, especially since they are strong but she refused to eat any treats before we went to the vet. She threw up some over an hour after she got the pills (mostly yellow foamy yuck) so I hope most of it had gotten in to her system. I couldn’t find any pill residues when I looked.
Albin is restless, he wants to do something like take a walk because we haven’t done that yet. No use in throwing something for him to fetch because he never comes back with it 🙂 He does however chase Sune if he gets what ever it is, perhaps I should try that 🙂 None of the big weather sites says we’ll have rain now but it is raining and more than drizzle now. I’m not surprised but it would be nice if they actually were right every now and again 🙂
Have a great day!
