Just did a quick answer earlier.
Having to go with a non dairy probiotic while she's on the meds. After she finishes them, I should be able to go back to the normal routine. Atleast that's the plan.

Good news,
The results of the middle ear, culture only showed inflammatory fluid. So she will stay on the same antibiotics, and other meds for two more weeks. If it had shown bacteria, she would have had 5 weeks.
Her eardrum will be rechecked in two weeks.
If all is healed, and no infection present. Piggy will be released run, and play wherever she pleases.
Right now she has no restrictions on exercise, as long as no debris, or water could get in the ear. So it does cut down on the places I take her.

Its been a long 5 months, but as of her vet check (ear culture) today Piggy's ear is now bacteria free. She has a once a week ear cleaner, just as a preventive.
YAY Piggy.

Lots of good thoughts, prayers, stress, 5 months of treatment, and $2700. later has been more than worth it.

Well, it's about time <G>. Glad to hear that it is finally resolved - what an ordeal for you.


When this first started, she was acting depressed. Was that because the ear was painful? Or something else? And is she her old self now?


I guess that there will be no more nutria diving for her now?

She is a lot more like her old self. Steroids added about 10 lbs to her weight, so we are working on that. She is still not a fan of on leash walks since this started, so its off leash to get in some exercise.
I won't say she will never hunt nutria, although I would rather she not. She has ear cleaner that's once a week, or if she gets water in her ears.
Its for the rest of her life, and $15. a ounce, unless I can find a cheaper source.

That is good news! What a relief for you and your dear Piggy. I don't know if it would be appropriate for your situation, but we use Zymox ear cleanser about weekly, and after Ernie swims. It's more economical than what you stated. Of course in the long run, using what works may be the less expensive option. Best wishes to you and your girl.

Its HB101, its what some of the vets use to compound with a antibiotic, or anti fungal for ears. I have my regular vet seeing if he can order it for me at a cheaper price. I know the specialist has more overhead, and charges more for it.
I've looked online, and found close to the samething, but not exactly.
