Ohh Noo...my 1st problem... yesterday my butterscotch came up to me so i picked her up and set her on my lap, i noticed both her ears had scabs on them like the got pecked and were scabbing,, when i put her down she kept scratching at them and i noticed she keeps shaking her head and does allot of yawning.. then i noticed today both sides are swelling up and is red and looks like they are filled with fluid... Hope someone can help , sorry the pics aren't so good...

Wondering when i lost the girl that use to dance in the rain and sang when i cleaned and made love outside in the sun. seems like it was yesterday but yesterday was so many years ago.. that girl has been replaced with someone who seems to be what im told we are suppose to be at this age.. I am my mother, My grandmother and her Mother before her.. I am wisdom,,, But I miss my young Spirit....`````

This definitely sounds and looks like an infection. It's been a month....any improvement?

Thanks to the Good People on the MN section that helped me and gave me advice I was able to help her. She is Doing Great and is back to normal. I do believe it ended up being ear mites. I treated with Valbazen. after cleaning ear out.

 

the black on her neck feathers is from Blu`Kote

 

Now for the Gross Pics... ,. I was worried i was going to hurt my girl..BUT she didn't seem to mind at all she even seemed like she was OK with me doing it.. and she sure seemed happier after it was done...
1st i put a warm rag on her ear to soften it,,the i took tweezers and pulled scab off and with it came hard yellow gunk..then i put ear wash in it (dog ear wash). then took qtips to it.. then cleaned it again. then packed it with neosporin.. I'm sure she felt better.. put her back outside and she went running to her friends...

 

 

I will try an get a updated pic today..
