My little poodle got an ear infection. She is 11. She is being treated but she is still shaking her head and she has gone completely deaf. But just before she started the treatment. Just makes me sad. I have three seniors and Matilda could hear me 4 weeks ago. She is now only on ear drops (Surolan) but was on antibiotics, and Vanectyl. I took her for a re-check last week. Her pills are done but she is continuing on the drops. I adopted Matilda was she was 6 years old. Her infection was yeast and bacterial. Do you think she might get her hearing back after 4 weeks?
The antibiotic was Clavaseptin.
I should mention, she slipped her collar one night and ran and ran and didn't respond to my calling her. I need knee surgery and ran like an athlete to get her. She ran across a busy road (she can't run fast and she ran fast. Seemed like she was spooked). Her ears bugged her for a couple of days before I took her to the vet as I put polysporin ear in her ears. I worked for vets 40 years ago and V-sporin and polysporin were basically the same thing I was told. So Matilda didn't go to the vet for maybe 4 or 5 days after the incident. I am so concerned because she is like the little goofy blond. No insult intended as I am blond. She pays attention to me but never learned hand signals or anything. I got her as an older dog and she came from rural Quebec and was French. I grew up there so know some French. Changed her named from Cannelle to Matilda. Now I think I must learn to train an older deaf dog. I rescued Gracie at the same time who was 8. She is now 13. she is going blind. Her name was Channelle. I already had my rescue from Greece who I named Calista (Cali) so changed the lttle ones names to Gracie and Matilda. Sorry I have rambled but I am so worried about her and I do love my new vets and trust them.
Just that I lost my 14 year old budgie, Chickpea 6 months ago, and then my 6 1/2 year old hedgehog, Hannah Rose and my 21 year old cat Tobi in the last 2 months. I thankfully still have the three dogs aged 9, 11 & 13. My baby cats, 14 1/2 from a feral mom, my parrot and 2 budgies.
