1st just let me say a very big Happy Birthday to Chico. I am so sorry to hear that both pups are having such serious ear issues. I hope the meds work well and that they both clear up soon. Sending lots of love to them both!!

On a side note I know some chronic ear issues can be caused by genetics, but not in all cases. Mr. Moose has chronic issues with his ears that require daily cleanings, and medication that contains an anti-inflamatory and antibiotic. He will be getting them for the rest of his life. I have seen all of his brothers and sisters (from 4 litters) and none of them suffer from the same issue. I am not saying that the breeder should not have disclosed the fact that there were genetic issues in the breeding lines because she absolutely should have...I am just saying the ear issues may be an entirely seperate issue...especially when both Chico and Kody (who had been fine) now have the same problem.

Yea, I think this problem is coming from a bath .... water in the ears and not dried out properly... unknown to me until it was too late.... this probably could have been taken care of a WHOLE lot sooner if the Vet was my normal Vet... and we got the culture sooner... I finally got to see my normal Vet this past Sat....of course, the culture was the first thing she wanted......

only one day gone by and both are not wanting to follow me toward the bedroom as that is the bathroom I have setup for 'medicine time'.... even the treat afterwards don't seem to make it all 2 weeks of this is going to be tough..... its not hard to catch Chico as he is abit slow with his bad legs.... but little Kody is quick and can crawl under my bed.....

Can you shut the door to the bedroom? Then go and get the dogs and dose them. I know how this works. My Bonnie had guardia, and had to have medicine AM and PM. She caught on very quickly. Has taken me months to get her to come near me in the am. She now will come up on the couch. No where near the dining room thank you!
