Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
In my opinion the best gift to give this dog is the surgery. She is deaf...but there is still all the pain one can imagine. Chronic ear infections have probably caused her pain for years...as well as the struggle for you to medicate.
Having the surgery performed, even though the first few days will be hard...is giving her a new lease on life. I am AMAZED at the youthful life a cocker has after these sources of chronic infection and pain are removed. Chronic pain is horrible for a person to live with...and for dogs too.
Please embrace this option...you will not regret the decision by 1-2 weeks post op when your dog has a new zest for life, and that worry is gone from yours!
