    Ear mites in pregnant mom

    OK, so Grey has been able to be treated for fleas with Advantage II, but I really think she may have ear mites!  She has VERY dark "crap" in her ear (more one than the other) and is scratching it often (even made it bleed a little on the outside by cutting herself).  The ear mite medication I...

    Sad news!

    I took Oreo in for the second vet opinion after not feeling as if she had been properly checked over from the one the day before.  The second vet ended up doing an x-ray to determine pregnancy as she said it was hard to tell what the "swelling" was caused from.  The x-ray showed a pretty bad...
