We were doing what we call a PM (Preventative maintenance) on Malone yesterday, which included nails, teeth, ears, heartworm, frontline, and a thorough brushing, and we do this once a month. When it was time to do his ears, he totally flipped on us. Usually he is OK about it, and we put him into a settle and he stays. Not yesterday. Nope. Uh uh. He growled at us and completely flipped out.
It took both of us to put him into a settle, and when I looked into his one ear, it had all this GUNK in it. The other ear was completely normal and clean. The cotton balls came out just as clean as when they went in. The dirty ear took 5 or 6 cottonballs until it was clean. I just checked his ears again, and the dirty one is already got gunk in it.
Does anyone know what this means??? Is there a problem?? Should I be concerned enough to call the vets????
Any insight would really be appreciated. Thanks!!
