Had Gizzy at the vet yesterday to get his yearly innoculation and after the vet had examined him he told me Gizzy has a heart murmer and then I explained that Gizzy had been shaking his head a lot that morning well he has an ear infection in both ears and has to get drops in his ears twice daily.An impossible task for me to do --the vet had to muzzle him before he could look in Gizzy's ears-Gizzy was definately going to snap/bite!! and he does have very big sharp teeth. My problem is I dont have a muzzle for him and I doubt if I'd mange to get it on Gizzy and I've found it impossible to get the drops into his ears he snarls and shows his teeth at me whenever I go near his ears -not like Gizzy at all. So I guess its back to the vet to find out if I have to take him twice a day to the vet to get the drops in or if they can give me some pills I can put in his food that will do the same job.
Just wish I could wave a magic wand ad cure them I'd rather have something wrong with me rather than them.

Sorry to hear about Gizzy's new problem. Try to wrap him in a towel or if that doesn't work time to call your son.

Gil I had no luck getting the drops in his ears and he was even more aggressive than the previous time so I had to take him back to the vet next morning- you wouldnt have believed this I was so surprised Gizzy just came out of his carrying case stood still, not even a squeak, and let the vet put on a muzzle, put in the drops, remove the muzzle and he just walked back into his box Silenced Silenced Silenced I was speechless. The vetenary nurse suggested I go buy a muzzle since he seemed ok with it and she gave me the size to buy.
Job done, I mean buying the muzzle!! but when it was time for the next dose of medicationI got the muzzle on ok but when I went to pick up the bottle with the medication in it Gizzy just went bananas and guess what? he got the muzzle off his mouth but it was still attached around his neck and he wouldnt let me near him to get it off -- and boy oh boy I've never ever seen him so agressive. This was at 8am on Sat. morning so I got him into his travelling box and got in the car and went straight back down to the vet I just couldnt let him run about with a muzzle hanging around his neck and my son was away for the weekend with the children.(Not good for the Blood pressure I may add)
In goes Gizzy to the vet - The tiger had turned back into a lamb!!! the vetenary nurse just unclipped the muzzle and put it back on again (tighter this time )put in the drops took the muzzle back off and Gizzy walks quite the thing back into his box --not even a tiny squeak!!!!
By this time I had had enough and asked the vet to give me the tablets and she could keep the drops for some other dog - laughing she said, 'sorry they're not chicken flavoured and he still has to get them twice a day!!' Outcome-- fantastic so simple wrap the pill in chicken - no problems now -thank goodness! Now he's almost back to his normal self.
Now I have told my son what happened he says where I'm concerned Gizzy is boss and I've been too soft with him and I've let him know by my actions that I've been apprehensive of putting the drops in his ears-- Hmm!!

Gizzy is fine now those tablets seem to have done the trick, he still has a few days to go yet but there's no bother getting him to take them. Best thing of all he's showing no signs at all of being aggressive in fact I'd say he's wanting petted more now. Perhaps his ears were very painful at that time but what I still cant understand is why he let the vetinary nurse do all that and yet he turned on me when I tried to help him Think d'oh!

Well she's certainly younger than me but no short skirt she wears trousers!!

Well next time I've to give Gizzy any medication and he acts odd I'll look out one of my old mini skirts, put a blonde wig on and loads of make up.
It will be easy to give him the medication then because one look at me and he'll have passed out!!!

Wait a minute though just thinking Think Think Thought the saying goes 'You cant teach an old dog new tricks' Think Think Big Laugh Big Laugh Big Laugh Big Laugh Big Laugh

Well tomorrrow morning its Bengy's turn to go to the vet to get his booster jag and his pain relief medicine is finished too-so if he has to get more of that too my visa card will be red hot -AGAIN!! I had to get more of his other medication just last week, and its expensive too, but I think I notice a difference in his eyes, they seem to be getting darker like how they used to be- fingers crossed I'm correct about this. His coat looks better too but he still cant walk very far without sitting down-mind you he maybe is just copying me Think Think
But I wont need to put on my mini-skirt tomorrow or put on my make up because Bengy doesnt growl or bite and goodness knows what the vet would say if I turned up like that -(he would be worse than my grandsons)-he's a real comic.

I think the photograph was so good it wont let me download it tonight but I'll try again tomorrow Very Happy
Good news today about Bengy vet is really pleased with his progress, eyes are better, his coat is better, tumour still the same -vet says nothing to worry about there, but Bengy is a bit too heavy so I guess we're all going to be cutting down on the food intake. He wont be getting any more blood samples taken until August and he did give me another small bottle of pain relief for Bengy but I've only to give him it if he starts to limp and seems to be in pain. It seems that the medication is making a BIG difference I'm thinking now perhaps Bengy has had that problem for a while and it hasnt been 'picked up' before.
But I'm just sooo sooo pleased he's on the mend now.
Gizzy now Think Think Think he was shaking his head again today- Anxious Anxious let's hope its not the ear infection back again. Mentioned this to the vet today and he did say the drops certainly work better in clearing ear infections but just to keep an eye on him. But there has been no more aggressive episdoes from Gizzy in fact the opposite it true now he just wants to be cuddled and petted. Typical male!!!!!

Now this IS me 'dolled' up - no kidding. Maybe the photograph was taken a while ago but I guess I can still find the wig and the outfit! I did go out looking like this at Christmas entertaining (my friend and me) I was Holly and she was Ivy. I still have copies of the songs we made up -- maybe I should use them too.

(Just can imagine me getting carted home in a police van if I did go out looking like that Silenced Silenced Very Happy Very Happy )

Thanks! That is too much. They will be carting you off to a different hospital than the one they took you to for your BP!

Boo hoo!

I should have stressed that the photgraph was taken a LONG time ago and my sister-in-law didnt recognise us when we called into our shop that night on our way to the concert and she was just about to tell us to get out when Bob started laughing and then she said almost the same words as you.

Must admit I've done some daft things in my younger days but all for a laugh and for charity so that's as good as an excuse as any.
