Poor Holly, Poorer OTL!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here!

Wot a rotten day it's been, no sun, a little rain, horrid misty foggy stuff and on top of that Holly had a trip to the vets!

The weather has been so bad that Old Two Legs didn't even take the camera out today, and that's bad!

The morning run was done at double speed because the rain was starting to fall. We got home just in time and after the ferrets had been out for their rampage around the house, OTL made the phone call to the vet.

Now, Holly Chops has been troubled by an infection in her eyes. It's her own fault, she keeps burying her nose into the sand and gets all the beach onto her face and of course her eyes suffer!

Then, for some reason or other she has got an infection in her ear. Just the one ear, it is all red and sore  and of course when she scratches it with her paw, it makes it worse!

We have had some stuff from the vet before but it didn't do any good so today we got out the big guns!

The vet has taken a swab from her ears and has sent it off for 'Culture Testing' which means that they are checking if for a fungal infection and they will 'Grow' the fungus and see wot it is!

In the mean time, Holly has been prescribed some anti biotic pills and some ear drops which, we hope, will reduce the soreness in the ear.

This all took about twenty minutes and cost OTL a fortune!

He was sobbing hysterically and wringing his paws!

I think he was putting it on but we got to get Holly's ears sorted!

So that's it today, sorry no photos but you can't do much with mist!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.
