Hi all, I am late to the party. I have been reading everyone's posts but not much has been happening with me.
It's midterm season! I had one today, I have an assignment due tomorrow, another midterm on friday, and my final one on saturday. Unfortunately I also have one on the 22nd, my 20th birthday! Of course it's right through dinner, so I won't be able to do anything. By the time I get home and get Benson out for a walk it will likely be 9:30....which is a normal time for people to get out to the bars, but that's not my thing! I'd rather be in bed at 9:30.
We are still having trouble with Benson's ears. The vet told me to up the dose on his Burrows Solution. If that didn't work then we would look at changing his diet because it is most likely due to allergies.
I asked her what the difference between the Burrows Solution and just normal ear cleaning products is, she said the solution has steroids in it so it's stronger. She also said Benson might be one of those dogs that just needs to have maintenance treatments biweekly for the rest of his life.
This worried me a bit because I don't like when I hear "rest of life" and "steroids" together. Anyone know of any long term effects this could have on him? It is not an oral medication, just a few drops in his ears...but still.
Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well. Richard, I hate to bring this up again but I do want to say I am sorry for the loss of Maggie. I hope I haven't upset you by reminding you.
I will most likely not resurface until next week, but do let me know what you all think of the steroid situation.
