My ear huwrts!!

I haven't been feeling real great lately. I've had a trouble with my ears now for quite a long time, but nothing like recently. Mom and Dad have been taking me to the Doctor's a lot and he's doing a lot to help me, but I still have an infection in there. Mom and Dad recently switched me to a new doctor and I like him....well, I don't lke him when he puts stuff in my ears when it hurts, but I always wag my tail through it all anyway, just to make him feel better awbout it.
The Doctor says I'm not making the progress that he's like to see in my ear and scared mom and dad and me saying that I may have to have ear surgery! Urgh..the surgery don't sound too good either...its called a Lacroix-Zepp procedure or a lateral ear resection where they would literally cut away part of my outer ear to give it a better spot to drain from...ick! Pretty serious stuff! I don't want no stupid ear surgery! So- everyone- do some praying or whatever you do to help me get better okay?

Oh Mackie...we hope ur ear feels lots better soonest...that's awful. We hope you don't have to have that nasty ear operation, but if you do it will help you to heal and that's the most important thing. We'll hope and pray and send our strongest concentration of terrier zen...(use gloves while opening the box, just in case...) to hope ur ear gets all better without the vettie havin' to do that procedure.

Happy Easter to ya!

Ouch! Sounds like a drastic step to take, so we'll be hoping that your new doc can clear that infection up soon and you won't have to have any surgery. Ear hurts are no fun!
