    Ok,BAD NEWS.The ear canal will have to be removed.The infection ,which has just never cleared up.Build up of moisture,drops etc etc,just made it worse.It should of been looked at better,but the vet said the local vet would not of realised.Its just the right ear the left is ok.If we went down the other road it would mean more antibiotics and it proberly will never clear up.So the only option is the above.It means he will be totaly deaf on his right side.I did ring the vets here to tell them as i did ask for him to be knocked out about 4 months ago,they didnt want to do that as they thought it would clear up and they thought that was a little extreme.So now i am sad becos i should of been more pushy.So i am fed up .Poor Alfs.

    Justine - you need to remember that you are now doing the right thing. Don't beat yourself up. 20/20 hindsight and all of that. The important thing is that he's going to be okay. Please don't be too hard on youself. Alfs wouldn't want you to

    When they aren't showing obvious pain, it is really hard to diagnose something like this and normally it would easily clear. So I wouldn't be hard on yourself or your regular vet. You could consider a second opinion from UCD vet school, if you haven't done so.

    Sorry to hear about Alfs Justine. Dont beat yourself up over it there was nothing more you could have done. What a little trooper that he never showed any sign of pain. for you both.
