Another Trip to the Vet

Allergies. It seems most people I talk to have issues with their dogs and allergies these days. Peabody has ear infections again and the doctor thinks allergies are the cause. He tried out a new medication today – instead of the usual twice-a-day drops and oral antibiotics, he squeezed a tube of thick goo into each ear. The “goo” (my super technical term) is supposed to stay in there for two weeks and will hopefully nip the problem in the butt at the source, rather than hitting his whole system with antibiotics and steroids. I also found out that I was seriously underdosing him on claritin, so hopefully increasing the dose will keep them from returning…because the only other alternative is a complicated and expensive series of allergy testing and shots. Poor pup.
