From last year. Guess I forgot to pull those big ears through the loops. Oh never mind, it's humiliating enough.
Update on Bucky: I've been treating and cleaning the ears every day as instructed by the vet. So far so good. Have to deal with lots of wiggling, sometimes chasing. We end up wrestling on the bathroom floor every time. He has a way to close up the ear canal when I need it to be OPEN. But the ears are cleaner than ever before, which makes mom very happy.
In last week's visit the vet also mentioned that Bucky's kidneys might be aging more than we'd like. Urine test showed he's drinking a good deal of water which puts stress on the kidneys. The vet suggested instead of kibbles that he's had all his life, we should try to switch him to canned senior food. That way he'll have plenty of fluid in him without drinking too much water.
So we picked up some Nature's Recipe senior lamb and rice cans over the weekend. After three days, Bucky is itching all the time. Yep, allergic reaction to the new food. We'll have to put off the new food until the itch stops.
