Day Thirty-Seven

Too much snacking yesterday, but it was kind of a stressful day.

I found another vet for Iggy and got an appointment right away. They are almost as close as the other vet and free parking is available, which is a big plus around here! I really liked the vet who treated Iggy, so I think this was a very good move.

Iggy has earmites. His ear was also full of scabs because of his scratching. I don't understand why it took me so long to notice! The vet removed a lot of crud from his ear, then treated both ears with a topical medicine, and gave him an injection to help with pain and to ward off infection. We will have a followup next week. I feel he is in good hands, and I'm very relieved. He didn't yowl at all last night. Of course, he hated the whole experience, but now I think he is finally feeling relief.

The cost was $70. My variables are at 95%.

Tomorrow I'm going on a museum visit with friends, with dinner afterwards. I think the museum is free, but of course dinner is not, and there may be a parking cost, too.

My task today -- which I meant to do yesterday until I decided that Iggy MUST go to the vet -- is to mail some packages. And if the weather warms as nicely as they are saying, I will go for a walk!

    CB - glad to hear Iggy is feeling better. I like this new vet for you. The other one lost a good client in you. Very strange.

    yay - glad you found a new vet that you like and that iggy's earmite problems are getting solved! Smile is last night the first time he didn't howl at night? i seem to remember you saying he was very loud at night when you first got him. will this solve that problem or is his howling no longer a constant issue?

    He is still yowling, though not as much as at first. I just thought he was still adjusting, little by little, to a new home, after all he had been through. Guess maybe it was his ears! Bad me. Frown

    You got it taken care of now. Really no way that you could have known that was the issue!
