    So his ears came all inflamed again, and off to the vets we went. It was a royal pain in the behind, only appt was 5.30pm, and as I can't drive yet, got a lift with boyfriend and had been walking round town from 3pm! The things I do for this dog..!

    Anyway, his ears were slightly red on Thursday, gone by Fri morning so he went to the kennels as planned. Looked this morning and his right ear in particular was all inflamed.

    Anyway, vet thinks he has an allergy, and as ears are so sensitive they were the first sign of it. He has had a shot of steroids and vet says if redness comes back to bring him back in for 'a longer course of treatment'. Vet had asked if Roo was shaking his head/scrapping at his ears, and he hasn't been. He said that his actual ear looks perfect, its just the skin close to his ears is very red/inflamed.
