I have already read some helpful threads about what I think might be the problem with Bishop's ear! I'm posting this to see if what I show you, might look like an infection in the ear. I have posted his ears since last Sunday, taking the post down every 4 days. Yesterday I notice he was sensitive on one ear a little more than the other and took down his posts early. I will post pics of both ears so that you can see what I saw. One ear is nice an dry after cleaning it up and letting it air out for a few hours, but the other ear seems a little redder and swollen somewhat with some liquid build up. Small amount, but still seems like it might be the start of something.
He has had no posts in all morning, he isn't scratching, and doesn't seem to be in discomfort. I called my Vet's office and made an appointment for Monday at 2p.m.
I figure might as well be proactive now, and get this taken cared of. I can post again after it all looks better, and I will inquire about a couple medicine I heard where useful to see if I can get a prescription. Otomax, and Ket flush? Any thoughts on these?
I don't smell much of a difference in either ear, it smells like wax.
Most important is for his ears to heal up nicely, and then I know posting will need to be done the right way. My thoughts: I should be more careful in how deep I put in the post!
I appreciate any input!
p.s: It is hard to get pics inside the ears. If you're able to zoom in it's easier to see!
This is the right ear that has some fluid: Ear with fluid Ear with fluid 2
This is a pic of his left ear which looks normal: Good EAR
