|Mikey developed an ear infection in July or June. When he was at the e-vet for one of his foxtails, they cleaned his ear out while sedated. They sent me home with a wash and an ointment to put in his ear.
Well, ain't no way I'll ever be able to put ointment in his ear and especially no way would I ever be able to use the wash.
So, I tried using antibiotics to fight the ear infection. That lasted all of 3 or 4 days. No matter what I wrapped the pill in (meat, cheese, butter, whip cream, wet dog food, etc.)he could smell it and no way would he put the food in his mouth. Now, he won't even touch whip cream because he now asssociatates it with yucky pills.
So, today I took him to the vet to have them put the ointment in. Of course they want me to clean out his ears 'cause putting ointment in his gunky ears isn't doing much good.
To get his ears washed out, they'll have to sedate him. Just no possible way around it.
My question is- Just to do a cleaning, is it a light sedation that he will come out moderately quickly? And I'll have to get his ears cleaned more than once.
I couldn't ask them at the time because there were 3 dogs in the waiting room, two of which were very hyper, and I had to get Mikey out of there, so I left without asking questions.
Of course I'll call them and ask tomorrow.
