Great stuff! I am so glad to hear this!

Jenny's been infection-free for about three weeks too... now if I could get her to stop scratching... :(

Never did do the pumpkin thing; let me know how that goes :)

Subject: [nagdu] Ears and allergies

I took Krokus to the vet today for an ear check, and his ears are
infection-free. Yay! The vet said to clean his ears once a twice a week.
I guess I'll start with that, then see if we can go longer without, and
monitor the situation.

He's lost a pound, so she says he can eat more, which I've been thinking
myself. He'll be delighted.

His anal glands keep filling up within a week or 2, so I'll start giving him
a bit of pumpkin and see if he's licking himself less. Even more in
Krokus's bowl!

Otherwise, he seems OK-a bit of scratching, but not so much I feel he needs
a pill, most of the time.

What a relief, not to have to clean ears twice a day, and no more vet for a
while, I hope.
