About 3 or 4 weeks ago, Pascha took a head tilt, and started walking in circles, so we zoomed her off to the vets, (it was a bank holiday and she recieved emergency treatment) they checked her ears and couldn't find any infection. The Vet thought she might have an inner ear infection due to her symptoms and gave her an anti-inflamitory injection.
A couple of days later she had stopped with the circles and the head tilt improved (now the tilt is barely noticable) but, she is now deaf, in both ears. What is worrying me now is the fact that she keeps trying to "listen" for things (ie, pricked ears) and keeps scratching at them. Is this just because she can't hear now (she had perfect hearing before) and is puzzled?
I did take her back to the vet who will be doing her leg ops for a pre-op check, and asked him to take another look at this problem, he checked her ears and found nothing there that indicates any infection.
Her personality is now pretty much back to normal apart from the ear scratching and ear pricking (I had to hand and spoon feed her since the ear infection as she wouldn't eat) she started eating herself just two days ago.
Am just concerned in case she might have got something in there that worked its way in and the vets missed it. Shes terrible for sticking her head into undergrowth, including stinging nettles. So maybe the nettles are why shes scratching her ears?
any ideas would be great!
