Scooter scared me

So glad he's feeling better. I hate it when something like that happens. Trouble usually waits until the vet is closed and we have to make a 30 mile trip to the Emergency Clinic with her in some kind of distress :shock:

And I'm sure that apple made it all much better :)

You mean a "reverse sneeze". :)

All better from the bee he's on antibiotics :rolleyes2: Because of the birth defect (growth plate never developed) his ear canal and nasal passages on that side are seriously underdeveloped.

He's had a runny nose for the last year and I wrote it off to allergies, but it's been getting worse and the discharge is alternately yellow and green and once in a while white. So, he is on 3 weeks of Ceph to try to see if we can get rid of whatever is causing the yellow and green once and for all....and a steriodal ointment for his ear so if we can get it cleared up.

On top of looks like Charlie's thyroid may be acting up, so we may be adding yet another medication to the morning med line.

I think I just put my Vet's youngest through her first term of college :shock:
