Customer Question
My almost 16 year...

My almost 16 year female springer Spaniel has an inner ear infection. What can we do to make her feel better?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the springer spaniel can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the springer spaniel's name?

Her name is Allie. Actually Indy Alley because because we bought her from a breeder in Indianopolis on Time Trial Days of Indy 500. I understand she is old, but I don't like to see her in pain!What can I do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Allie?

I just want her to be comfortable
