My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I am sorry to hear your dog had a problem with foxtails.

Depending when your had the foxtail removed, the symptoms of the fox tail should resolve in 24-48 hours after being removed. If it has been longer than 48 hours, you may have her ear rechecked bu the vet fo something else going on , possibly a second foxtail that was missed or something else going on. Past 48 hours, it should be resolved. and needs to be rechecked. Please hit reply to discuss this information. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service 5 stars.
