Dot's ear is better

Sunday, August 11, 2013

After a long fight with my little pup's chronic ear infection I think that I may have found something that actually works. I found the ointment called Zymox on the internet and everyone raved about it. Well, after 2 doses alot of the redness gunk in her ear is gone. It looked beautiful today when I rinsed it. She even seems to have a bounce in her step and happier. The cool thing is that I don't have to go to the expensive vet and buy antibiotics. I will keep you updated.
I am slowly but surely getting back on track. Being sick and in pain can really put a kink in your program. I am looking forward to swimming this week.
Sometimes I get a little disheartened that the progress is slow but it is progress and I am not as young as I used to be. The age of 53yrs seemed to have sprung up on me fast. I morn the losses that come with age but also rejoice in the achievements accomplished and the hurdles overcome. I know that weight loss is a long journey but with patience it will spring up on me before I know it. Cheers, Keith>

    My dog also has ear issues. He gets VESTIBULAR DISEASE which makes him appear to be having a stroke. It is actually more like Vertigo. Anyway, from what website did you get this ointment? Maybe it would work for my dog better than what I have from my vet.

    Glad you and Dot are feeling better! Being 59 I can tell you . . . you DON'T always bounce back as quickly as you did when you were younger! But heck, at least we bounce back!

Keep on feeling better . . . Dot too!

    Am glad to hear you are feeling better and your dog's ear is getting better. It's good when you can save money over spending it.
