Vet Visit and an Ear Infection

Tuesday we went to the Vet' s for the official visit and check up.

Here is Jam checking out the cold examining room table as we wait for Dr. Woodman to arrive.

I think Jam hears Dr. Woodman, who has raised two SEGD puppies. It is indeed Dr. Woodman and Jam turns out to have an ear infection and needs drops in both ears twice a day. He came to us at 14 pounds and has only gained 6 ounces in spite of eating like a little piggy.

Here he is with April, who brought him his drops and gave him his flu booster shot. He was still a bit miffed about the flu booster shot.

I was the first person to give Jam his ear drops and didn't have any problem. Fred gave him the next dose and we ran into a bit of a problem. Jam has his sound he makes when he's mad that we call The Weasel. It's a bit like when you step down on the gas and run your motor on overdrive and it sounds like the car is going to explode: that high pitched angry squealing noise. That's The Weasel.

When I give the drops, I try to sneak them up on Jam, massage his ears, pull on his ear flaps, then do it when he isn't expecting it. So we made a video in case anyone is interested and has a puppy who also makes weasel noises. It makes for a happier home.

  1. Hi Y'all,

    Pool little fella. I've suffered ear infections and they came from a food allergy and another infection that I had to have a minor surgery to clear up. Since then, paws crossed, I've had no problems with them.

    Y'all come by now,
