Sorry to bore the few of you who regularly read my diary. I'll keep it short this week.
Saw a different vet as the other lady was on holiday. She understood totally mums reluctance to keep me on the steroids, but did still say that in the long term that might be the only treatment i can go on. She also mentioned Atopica that i've heard really good things about but that's £100 a month! Very dear stuff. My ear is looking much better she said but i have to continue the drops still as i'm still slightly inflamed and the infection hasn't totally gone yet. My paws are not improving much. Instead of steroids, the vet prescribed a steroid spray that she said doesn't get in the bloodstream is much safer to give. I just have to have my paws sprayed with it once a day. My paws have to still be bathed every other day in the Coatex too. The steroid spray is called Cortisone or something like that. Food was also mentioned again, i'm on Salmon & Potato but i could even be allergic to the Salmon! Home cooking was mentioned, possibly Pork & Pasta. Mum mentioned Raw feeding but the vet wasn't keen on that idea. I go back in 12 days time for yet another check up, but hey, least it's 12 days this time and not a week! :)

Cortisone is a steroid and very common everywhere as a cream or spray... exact same problems and warnings go with it... its all over the packaging....
Glad your ears is improving... but frankly.. I would still be changing vets.
Hugs for you.. we care....
