The vet declared that Moo’s ears look “good”! YAY!
She is on the ear drops for another three days (so through the weekend), only on the antihistamine (three times a day), and the ear cleanings are getting weaned down to just once a week over the next month or so (assuming that by cutting back the ear goo doesn’t start to get bad again).
The food trial goes 12 weeks – that alone is going to bankrupt me, I think. After just over a week I am almost half way through the bag due to feeding both dogs. But, he said we should know around 8 weeks if it truly a food related problem. So, in the meantime, I am searching for a local store that can get the Nature’s Variety food. Both dogs did fabulously on the salmon and I would like to put them back on that.
So, for now there are no more vet visits unless other problems pop up, or if the scratching and head shaking doesn’t continue to improve.
