Dogs on 'Roids
The vet tells me my Golden Retriever is having an a particulary bad allergy attack. How he gets an allergic reaction in just one ear I don't understand, but whatever. It's bad enough that the inside of his ear looks like a college wrestler who's never worn headgear in his senior year. Now he gets a week worth of prednisone, and a high pressure water injection in two weeks to flush out the ear canal. I have a hard time getting 91 lbs of Golden to come out of the truck for his annual check-up now; we'll see how he reacts to the vet after having a plastic nozzle jammed into the side of his head while he's pinned to the exam table.
