    I will post the pictures hopefully tomorrow if I can get to a computer but the vet did feel around and said he couldnt necessarily feel anything however that doesn't mean there isn't something there. He didnt wanna get to aggressive in the field without more help but if it doesn't clear up I will have to find a way to pay my trainer to haul him up to Bishop one day as I don't have a truck or trailer of my own yet. Today I attempted to clean it but he was so sore and kept yanking away from me I couldnt do much by myself. It is oozing again but it was a bloody type puss type substance. It doesn't smell and we are doing what we can since we don't want to bute him everyday to mess with it.

    Hmmm... that may be like scab material. Especially bc it doesnt smell. Is the ooze is clear and odorless, it may just be sebum, which means it may be healing now and the infection is going away! :) Keep an eye on it. Your doing great and your doing your best!

    It was like a light red color and was sort of slimy. I sure hope its just starting to heal that'd be amazing and thank you :)

    1-his ear the day I bought him after the 1st vet visit
    2-the difference in his eyes
    3-6- his ear 2 days after the 2nd vet visit before I attempted (and failed) to clean him up by myself.

    It would be nice if you could get all that hair shaved off of the ear so that it would be easier to clean. It is a magnet for bacteria with scabbed up hair there.

    Ya if it were possible I would but the vet didnt and there is no.way we will get clippers near that ear now. Its a struggle to even wipe it and clean it up. The first time he was shaved only after getting 2 shots because he couldnt get the clippers there without him throwing his head around like crazy.

    It is easier said than done for sure. I hope he gets better.

    Im sure if I had a pair handy that I could have played around woth him on before then I could but we didnt have any to practice with him and now he is even more wotried about it.

    It's looking ALOT better! Red and pink are GOOD! Slimy is ok! That is probably just sebum. Just keep doing what your doing, bc it seems to be getting better. Just keep an eye out for a bad smell or any yellow green discharge. He's so pretty, btw!
