Did this behavior start after starting her on Valium?

She had started it before, but it's been declining afterwards.
Her fear of storms had gotten worse, and it was all but impossible to keep her from hurting herself. That's why I moved to valium. She's still stressed when on valium, during the storm. Just more controllable.
I'm holding off on the CBD oil, atleast until I know her ear is clear.

The evening rain missed us yesterday, and no rain in the forecast till this afternoon.
Saw some of the old June. A little rooing, and playing with her toys. She still piled up in the bed a good part of the day.
But I'll take her small improvement, as a good sign.

I'm hoping that June is back to her old self. Or at least more like her old self.

While not totally herself, but she has improved a lot.
Acting a little bossy, and snagged a whole bag of freeze dryed chicken off the counter. Which is the June I know, and love.

She had her ear packed again today, and a new antibiotic. High chance it will be packed again next week.

After it was packed last time, we extended the antibiotic for a week longer.
I thought it had cleared up, but I guess it wasn't.
You can tell by her look, she's not impressed with the vet visit.

Yikes, poor babe. I sure hope you can find out what is the cause of her sudden ear infections.

TR... I am so sorry
Your poor girl... she looks so thin, she is really miserable!

...I am only going to say this, because I just experienced it personally... Zeke had been afflicted with Foxtail issues.. I kept finding them, after I had checked him thoroughly,
and then I saw him eat one, so I had him to the Vet for a total Fox tail check up... and an endoscope ( he has Ins.) ] he had to be anesthetized
The **** Doctor never looked in his ears... declared he had an ear infection, and prescribed meds. but never did a visual ear exam.


so ... has your vet actually looked in to June's ear... I know it is a dumb question... but just what if it is something foreign? I DO pray for her to get better...

Must be the picture, because she's not thin. She could still stand to lose a few pounds. With her being under the weather, and ponds off limits due to her ear. It makes any real exercise tough.
While she hasn't been around any foxtails, the thought of foreign object has crossed my mind. My personal vet has looked in her ear, but not under sedation. She was only sedated at the ER vet. Its also had me second guessing the real cause if her needing that visit. As Ranger did growl, and snap to get her to back off. But I never saw him actually nip her. There was only one small slit on the inside of the ear, but no marks any where else, including the outside.
Last Tuesday she had a horrible day. Acting like when we have storms in the area. I even check the radar, but no rain anywhere near us. I told my husband, we really have to find what's ailing her. I'm not sure how many of those days me, and her can go through.
If these last treatments don't help. I think we are overdue in having a specialist see her.
