Update on my dog Dusty
Tuesday, August 20, 2019
Dusty had to have two surgeries to fix a hematoma in his ear. I was having problems with getting him to take his medicine but found something that he liked and will eat which was black pepper turkey. Today after two weeks I took him to the Vet to get the stitches out. He was still shaking his head so the Vet looked under a microscope to see if the infection was still there which is not yet he is still shaking his head. She put him on some steroids to see if that would clear whatever is bothering him. She said if the steroids didnt do it then he may need a CT scan to determine if he has a mass. The cost of it is $1000. I am beside myself because that is alot of money to spend on something that my or may not be there. She said that they could try an xray but it may not see anything. My dog is twelve years old. Even if he did have a mass I wonder if I should put him through the torment of the treatment or let him live out his life peacefully. I just dont know. I have alot to think about. I dont want him to suffer if he does have a mass. We will see. I will give updates on him periodically.
