Mom and Dad have noticed that I have been scratching my eyes and ears on the corners of the walls. I usually do this when my allergies are bad from pollen. Well, my hair was really grown out…like, the longest Mom has ever let it get. So she knew it was time to groom me. She told me I was full of pollen and dirt. I don’t mind the dirt but that pollen stuff is awful!

When Mom was trying to groom me, I wouldn’t let her do my head or face or ears. I mean, I don’t normallyΒ let her do those spots but this time I was super adamant about her NOT doing them. Now she knows why.

Just look at my poor little ear!


There’s no brown stuff but it’s SOOOOOOOOO red and owwie! And it’s actually BOTHΒ ears!

Not only are my ears all wonky but my head is all scabbed and raw. Mom is hoping it’s just allergies. During my bath she used shampoo and conditioner for itchies. After that, she used medicated ear wash and then put antibiotics in my ears. If they are still red on Friday and my head isn’t healing, I have to go to the doctor.

After my haircut and bath, Mom rubbed my head and ears for me. It was amazing:


Here’s my before and after:


My face and ears aren’t done because I wasn’t having anymore of that nonsense.

Mom was really trying to get a full frontal of my face for the before. She said I looked like an ewok. I just had to google ewok. How rude! (But very true. I was super fluffy in the face.) Also, I was barely spotted anymore. When my fur grows out, it covers all of my beautiful spots and that makes Mom sad.

Anyway, a little POTP for healed ears and head please. Mom’s not ready to start the whole finding-a-new-vet saga just yet.

    You may need a prescription, but my (actually not sure what she is? Grandmas dog? Does that make her my aunt?!?!) Anyway, that dog, Tallie, is a tibetan terrier with awful itchy ears and they always squirt stuff in called ‘surolan for dogs’. Like I say, I think it may be prescription (though we are in Uk) but it works well! And you get a big bottle so Grandma just uses it as and when. Hope it helps πŸ™‚

    • Hi Rupert! My mom started with entoderm, a Rx ointment. If that doesn’t work, she’s going to try surolan, which we also have in the house. My sister and cousin ALWAYS had ear infections so we have a stockpile of ear stuff. P.S. I don’t like ear medicine. *ear licks* Noodle

    Hi Noodle Buddy! That sounds awful! I get stuff in my ears at times and I just have to keep trying to scratch it out, but then my Mom wipes them out with cotton wall balls soaked in stuff they got from the vet. That solves the problem. Woof! Ray.

  5. Oh Noodles, I feel your pain!!! I gots to take the Benadryls everyday because my ears itch all the time! Luckily (or Ma says UN luckily ☺) it doesn’t make me sleepy or anythings, so it’s really good for me. Oh, and I HATES my ears trimmed too! Wells, Ma did MANGLE my ear last year, so there’s that! (RM here: I did NOT mangle her ear, I just nicked it and it bleed..a lot. She doesn’t even have a scar! mangled my aunt fannie…) I gots my paws crossed for you Noodles! Sendin’ lots of POTP!

    • Mom said she’s going to give me benadryl. She normally gives that to me for my allergies but sometimes it doesn’t work and she has to switch to zyrtec. When neither of those work, I have to get a steroid shot. OMD your mom mangled your ear?! I’m always afraid mind going to take my eye off when she shaves my head. (Noodle’s mom here: I did the ear nick to Mya and it was MESSY! Looked like I murdered someone. I felt so guilty.) Talk to you later, Ruby, when our mom’s aren’t around. *ear licks* Noodle

  10. Mom says in Episcopalian, POPT is Prayers of the People. She doesn’t know what it means here (and I’m not telling her). Anyway, Noodle, honey, I am so sorry you are miserable with the stinkin’ allergies. I have been sneezing and rubbing my eyes, but it’s nothing like you are going through. Tell your Mom to keep massaging your ears. It might not make them all better, but it sure does feel good!

    Love and ear rubs,
    Your queen.

    Yep, we can sympathize – Daisy just went through the same thing. Two meds and a medicated wash later, the scabs are gone and her ears are light light pink again. It had gotten to the point FAST where we couldn’t touch her body except on her tummy and back because her skin would actually move and she was not happy. It’s an annual spring thing for Daisy. Glad you’re feeling better!

    Oh, Noodle! I WAS at the vet today for itching! I licked and bit a spot on my leg so much that Mom was afraid it would get an infection. The vet gave me a shot and I haven’t scratched once all day! Plus there’s medicine and a super cute pink bandage on my sore leg spot, so I can break the cycle of fussing with it. I hope you feel better soon, buddy. Medicine is amazing!

    Love and licks,

  14. We cocker spaniels know all about those nasty ear problems! Joey dog gets a lot of those problems and has allergies too. I’ve been lucky so far, but it’s just a matter of time. We hope you feel better soon!

    Oh, and I too have wonderful spots that get hidden when my fur grows long. It’s almost time for us to go see our groomer Miss Jacquie.
