She's not been on the Canidae since Tuesday afternoon. She's refusing to eat the Turkey, but I'm making her keep trying because when she was on BARF before she refused chicken and turkey, only wanted beef, so it's just a matter of me sticking to my guns until she realizes that she can eat it and live.
Now, today the wife calls me and said that the ears are bothering her really bad. They didn't seem to bother her as much yesterday, but I'm thinking that either A) she's detoxing and it's just doing the 'get worse before better' or B) It wasn't the food, but then I'm lost as to what it would be? Could it really be a deep inner ear infection? She's hold the ear down and cocking her head to the side, so it's similar to that of a ear infection, equilibrium being messed up.
So what are you thoughts everyone?
What options would a vet be able to provide in terms of medication to prevent her from at least scratching further until I find the cause?
I've used creams, sorry, I'm exhausted and can't think of the names right this second, and she's used the medicated ear cleanser.
Could I maybe not be getting the cleanser deep enough, or used enough?
Any thoughts on what I can do to get her out of scratching til it bleeds, just until I can find the cause. I'm still pretty sure it's the food, but I can't have her ripping her ear half off, or shaking all of the time.
