Pupdate: Sammie

Sammie has been through all her pain pills and antibiotic, and we were diligent about flushing her ear tube and ear canal. About a week in, however, the tube quit draining. We called the vet, and they thought it might be a clog – they suggested we try putting peroxide through it and massage it to try and break it up. If that didn’t work, they could do it in their office.

Well, we tried without success so took her to the vet yesterday. Good news: her ear actually looked pretty good and they removed the tube! She still needs to go in next week to have her stitches removed, but we are on the right path.

She hasn’t come out the other side unscathed, however. Her ear doesn’t stick up fully anymore. But I think this makes her look even more endearing. What do you all think?

    She looks absolutely adorable. Glad Sammie is improving. Nothing worse than ear infections.

      Nothing worse indeed! Hopefully her inner ear has cleared up as well 🀞🏻🀞🏻 we have started on the grain free food, so I’m hoping we’re done with ear problems for a while now.

    Bless her heart. I think the droopy ear is endearing too.

      Thank you! I’ve always found her more regal than cute, but I think the floppy ear puts her completely in the cute category!
