I have to wear the lampshade!!!

I have been having this ear ache for the last couple of days. Mummy was wondering why I was worrying my ear so much so she took me to the vet this morning. (Shudder! Horrors!) And true enough I have a horrible bacterial infection in my ear.

I was jabbed with this cruel needle. The vet says its a long acting pain killer so I won't feel the infection so much. And then worst of all, I had to have my infected ear cleaned. All I can say is that I didn't give the vet an easy time with it. It took 2 big hoomans to hold me down. They even had to put a muzzle on me because I was ready to bite. It was so awful.

Anyway, now I have to take these anti-biotics for 2 weeks and my ear has to be cleaned everyday by Daddy. I don't mind so much about the anti-biotics. Mummy always puts my medicine inside a small sausage and gives it to me. She thinks I don't know that the medicine is inside. To humour her, I eat the sausage with no complaints!! Hee! Hee!

But frankly the worst part of it all is that I have to wear the dreaded lampshade for about 2 weeks. I hate the thing. I feel so clumsy with it. And Toto won't leave me alone. He thinks its really funny to see my misery.

Don't I look pitiful?

Oh no, sorry about the lampshade, but it is for the best. Mommy and daddy want you to be healhty and wearing that will keep you from scratching yoru ear and making it worse.

I hope you feel better soon, keep us updated

Hi, Scruffy.
I understand you. I had to wear that cone twice! That left me with no fur around my neck! I understood that wearing that thing was the best for me.
Sure it will help you to get better soon.

Have a nice day
