Thread: Connor needs an OP

  1. #1

    Connor needs an OP

    On Friday I noticed a discharge from one of Connor's ears, so on Saturday it was off to the vet!

    She examined him, and cleaned TONS of wax out of his ears!!! I am so ashamed - I never realised how dirty his ears were. I clean both his and Ally's ears with a cotton ball, but I don't go too deep, and the vet was poking around with an earbud!

    She says that she needs to check his ears properly, and to do that he needs to have a General Anaesthetic. Whilst he is under she will check his timpanic membrane and try to find out why he is deaf!

    They gave him an anti-inflamatory and antibiotic injection (during which he bit me), and some ointment for his ears)

    I know he has had a General Anaesthetic before (for his neuter and his tail op), but I am still really worried about it!

    Please keep my big boy in your thoughts and prayers!

    Thanks Kay for my great sig & avatar!!!

    Oh no, I hope all goes well. And maybe, just maybe she'll find out why he's deaf and maybe there's a chance it can be corrected. But I've heard that for people who have been deaf all their lives and then for whatever reason they start to hear, it's actually kind of scary because everything seems so loud and there is just soooo much noise that they are overwhelmed by it.

    Anway, just wanted to let you know we'll be sending positive thoughts and prayers out for Connor.

    Poor Connor! He's such a gorgeous boy!! I hope the vet can clean out all the dirt! It would be perfect if he could get part of his hearing back, it wouldn't be such a huge shock!

    When Fister had anaesthesia? we asked the vet if he could give him a little less than normal - and it worked! That was when he had his teeth cleaned. Perhaps you can do the same.

    Will be sending positive thoughts that all is going well!!

    Best of luck, you handsome young man and I hope when they look, they find out your hearing loss is fixable. Kisses and hugs to get through your tests.

    Connor, sweetie, as a half-deaf human, I promise we'll all love you just as much if your ears are still just decorative once they are cleaned out. We all want the best for you, now be good at the white-coats!
