    Default Advice needed please post 7

    Just setting off to the vets now. Cheeky bun has been receiving meds for an ear infection. She's now losing her balance and I've just felt a lump under her ear whilst giving her her meds :-(
    Any advice? She's on baytril in the ear and metacam.

    My heart has joined the thousand, for my friend stopped running today.

    Sounds as though the infection has now spread into her MIDDLE EAR (Otitis Media) which is effecting her 'balance mechanism'. There is probably an abscess in there which is what the lump you can feel indicates.

    Her ear drum is no doubt perforated, so the Vet will need to be extremely cautious about what is put directly into the ear canal

    Just back. We are going to see Aiden at Ashleigh vets in Manchester at 3 today. My vet thinks it is an abscess
    Thank you Kermit and Jane xx Will read them now Jane thank you. Just need to plan my route as I don't do sat navs and panic going to new places. Update later.

    Oh man, was really hoping it wasn't an abscess. I hate them!

    Vibes that you have caught it early and the meds get shot of it quick smart xx

    Oh, and vibes that you make it there without any hiccups.....just leave extra time for wrong turns!

    Well Cheeky's had a head x ray and it's not an abscess
    It's a build up of wax. Aiden has managed to squeeze some out Her ear drum is still intact but she has got a middle ear infection. So she'll be on a 3 month course of abx and metacam. Just going to pick her up now

    So my little girl is on daily ceporex injections and metacam. I've confined her to a pen because of her head tilt and balance issues. She is pooing and weeing but not eating pellets or hay but is eating herbs, greens, dried leaves and fenugreek crunchies. I'm just about to do a hay expert order and wondered about a probiotic. Should I get avipro + or is there anything else I need to help her?
    Any advice greatly appreciated as I'm feeling a bit lost and alone here.

    Bio Lapis may be a better probiotic, although it is a lot more expensive
