Oh, this boy of mine!!
So, we just got home from the e-vet. We were due for a visit, I guess, it has been 4 months since our last one! LOL!
Earlier this evening, I was talking on the phone with my SIL's sister, and was absentmindedly playing with Hen's ears when I noticed that they were both swollen!!The left one was way worse than the right, about 3 times the thickness that it should be, but the right one had already doubled in thickness.
Here is his left ear:
and this one is of his right ear:
He hasn't been really itchy or shaking his head more than usual, and our own vet's office opens at 8am tomorrow, but I had visions of Henery's ears going balloon-esque overnight so I rushed him to the e-vet. Fortunately, it was a slow night for them and we were in and out within an hour. Thank goodness for small positives.
E-vet (who remembered us from last time! all the girls came to love on Henery!) diagnosed aural hematomas, secondary to an ear infection in his left ear. I'm SUCH a bad momma.
He had both his ears flushed with Burrow's solution (drying agent + antibacterial) and got his first dose of VanectylP (antihistamine + antiinflammatory steroid), and I have a week's worth of VanectylP to give him, and two weeks of the ear drops. Boy, he's gonna hate me.
Poor boy... he's sulking in his crate.
If we could trouble you for some good thoughts for Henery, it would be greatly appreciated!
Hope he starts feeling better soon!
On the way! Poor Henery hand him the remote for that satelite dish
oooooooo...those ears look hot and owie! Poor baby! Maybe mama will decorate your "cone of despair" with fun stickers for you? Feel better soon!
Melissa, Remy & Brooklyn
poor Henery Feel better soon buddy! Your antics are an insperation to Sam-wise!!
Jeepers! I think Henery likes the vet (e-vet no less) more than Rocky does. Hope those ears heal soon!
The other day I was just thinking to myself " wow I haven't had to run to the vet in a few months!". Sure enough last Friday I had to go back with his foot injury. These boys! Yeesh! Luckily Rock gets away with a bandaged foot (or just a bottie) and no e-collar (which I threw out like 3wks ago after having for a year)

Poor boy Henery! It's not good when you are on a first name basis with your e-vet. Sending ear-healing, non-satellite dishwearing thoughts.
