Thank you for the update... I sure hope she can just get past this ... what a crumby way to spend the summer...
I'm still praying for her recovery, but I will certainly add energy to finding the cause of the issue.

As planned, Piggy had her ear repacked today. She goes back on thr 31st to have it rechecked. If not all the way clear, we will discuss what options are next.
Last night we had thunder in the distance.
Easier to get some rest, if I just slept with her in the spare bedroom.
She's on tramadol just for today (possibly tomorrow), after the vet visit. As she has a tough day after they pack her ear.

Scary enough when they get sick as one off but having to deal with this for weeks without being able to help her must be devastating. Did the vet consider the option of foreign object in her ear? Or any other idea?

We talked about doing another culture on the ear. I'm seriously considering a ENT.

Her ear is better than I've seen it, since this started. Sadly its still not 100% well.
No dark heavy build-up way down in the ear canal like in the past. But she has a film (best way to describe it) thats in the canal. Even the vet couldn't see all the way down the ear, due to the film.
Sent off a culture today. Hopefully have a new game plan, once the results are back

I would like the ear flushed out, for a better look. The vet wants to wait until the results from the culture is back.

So far nothing is growing on the culture.
The lab is going to give it as long as they can.
Her ear hasn't changed since the last vet visit. Not better, not worse, just the same.

My vet really wanted to see the lab results, before going over the next step.
He was really thinking it was a antibiotic resistance bacteria. That the test would show which antibiotics we need to use.
I'm sure we will touch base when it grows something, or if time runs out for it to grow anything.
She's been acting a lot better. Still not totally herself, unless this is the new her. I'm sure her ear feels better than it did. But will be back like it was, if we don't figure this out.
