I think Tucker has an ear infection. I am gonna try to get him to the vet either this afternoon or tomorrow morning. My poor baby!!! He just had to go to the vet exactly two weeks ago today because he hurt his leg. The vet said it was just a sprained muscle. Hopefully he will be all better real soon.

I'm really not sure. I just noticed that one ear was very red and the other was not. Also, he had been scratiching at that ear a little bit and it seems to have a bad odor. Although I remembered this morning (after seeing him do it again) that he likes to roll around in the grass and usually starts by rubbing his face/head onto the grass
maybe this caused it. Who knows...

Well, I took Tucker to the vet Friday afternoon, and yes he does have an ear infection. The vet gave me some earwash to use daily for two weeks and then he said probably once a week, for maintenace. Also gave us some ear medicine to use for the two weeks. I am already seeing an improvement. The vet wants to see him back in two weeks to make sure all is well. While we were there, I also had him re-check the leg that he hurt on July 14th, because he had still been limping occasionally. He said that everything seems to be okay with it, but if he's still limping by the time we go back on Aug. 12, then he may have to sedate him and try to look further into it. So far, I have not noticed any limping since our vet visit. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best. I really don't want to have to put my poor baby through anything else right now.
