Welcome to The Moblog of Sir Findo Gask.
Unfortunately for you this is like a window in to my mind!

Oh dear, poor fella. What's wrong with him??
Oh dear... Hope you're closer to working out what's wrong with the poor lad...
We think that he has a sever infection in his middle ear. Just before Christmas he started walking around with his head tipped to one side and also started running in to things.
We took him to see his vet, Dr Needle, who said he had a palsy and conjunctivitis. He didn't know if the conjunctivitis caused him to clatter in to something which caused the palsy or the other way around.
He gave him a load of antibiotics and stuff but that has not cured him, so yesterday the boy was taken in for X-rays. Nothing conclusive from those but Dr Needle still thinks it is an ear problem. So to that end he sedated the boy, burst his ear drum and washed his ear out, then sent him home with a paw full of antibiotics and pain killers.
He has to go back on Monday, Thursday and the following Monday to have his ear flushed through again. If that don't work, then Dr Needles friend, Dr Scalpel will have a go at him :(
poor boy, i hope he doesnt need to go see dr scalpel. :(
get well soon borris.
Poor guy! Are they running tests on what they flushed out of his ear to be sure it is an infection and not something like vestibular syndrome? How old is Borris?
*sends virtual cuddles to Borris*
Aw, poor wee man!
oh dear - poor Borris
Silar, he is 8 this year.
They have sent of a sample from his ear to check for stuff. We should know the results on Monday.
Oh poor little fella! Give him a kiss from me (no tongues though)!
Don't worry about the bill too much. That's why God created the Capital one credit card...
Insured or not we'd spend the money, he is suffering so it has to be sorted :)
Inevitable Borris-related browsing of vet sites reveals that CAT & MRI scans can be used to investigate deep ear problems - check your policy & try to sway the vet if the insurance covers it - you could have your first picture of Borris T from the inside!
Heuw, just reminded self of that Vapours song...
Oh hildegard! Did you HAVE to? I've now got that bloody song in my head.
*I really think so* : )
Poor Borris, that top pic kinda tugs on the heart strings ..... the second pic kinda tugs on the purse strings ..... really hope the treatment works ......
This one by any chance?
Oh my word, I'd never seen the video before...
I'll definitely be humming it all weekend now! But oh! For 3 minutes I was young again....
Aw, poor Bo!
Feel Better Borris!
(P) what's this?
