It’s time. The mighty Samson seems to be doing a bit better in terms of the overall allergy picture, but his ears are still a mess. I can’t keep up.
He’s responded positively to Temaril-P in the past, and I just ordered some. Time to nip this smelly, gross ear funk in the butt. Samson also seems to have a very sensitive spot just inside one of his ears. It’s heart-wrenching to hear this 75+ pound ball of yellow love yelp like a little puppy, even when you just pet that ear.
The move to New York may have helped a bit, but he’s also inside much more than he used to be in New Hampshire. Regardless, it’s time to use some “medicine,” and this time, it’s strong medicine.
Side note: his rear right knee isn’t doing so hot. He’s had TPLO surgery on both rear knees, but this one is never really gotten him back to tip top shape. Too much arthritis and such. He needed some of the shredded miniscus removed, so that doesn’t help any. I’ve heard clicking back there a couple times over the past few weeks.
And he’s only 7…. 😦
