Ok so the drops for her ears havent worked. Im going back to the vet next week. Is there anything else I should get checked apart from her ears as i am there?

Have you flea'd her on the neck at all she may be allergic to the treatment?

I would take in the Syringomyelia info sheets from Karlin's other site: www.sm.cavaliertalk.com

From Dr. Clare Rusbridge: http://www.sm.cavaliertalk.com/Syringomyelia%20made%20simple%20update.pdf

Scratching at the ears/head/neck is *the* most classic sign of SM, unfortunately.

Our Bulldog has had occasional ear problems and sometimes it takes an antibiotic in addition to "drops" to clear him up. Did the vet think she had a yeast problem or infection in her ears?

Also - check out PSOM on Karlin's SM site.

Also ask him to do a skin scrape or see if he thinks it should be done. Jaspar had rabbit mites and that made him scratch like mad for a while.
