To say Snoopy has been unlucky with health issues, is an understatement. You may remember last year when we had to remove both his ear canals as he would get infections every few months. This year the problem we face is his sight. Our little pooch, whom I still think of as a puppy, is our family disabled dog.
Poor little Snoopy: you may remember last year he had an aural ablation operation, which basically removes his inner ear canals. This means that Snoopy can no longer hear normally, more a muffled and distorted noise. We went down this route to stop the ear infections that occurred every few months or so. Well, it hasn’t! To put a long story short.
Snoopy, our very snuggly Cocker Spaniel has the largest and floppiest ears I have ever seen on a Cocker Spaniel. It was cute for the first 18 months of his life, but as they got larger, they got heavier. Don’t get me wrong they are still cute, but have been a huge maintenance on our part, the vets part and poor Snoopy. It’s not something you think about when you get a dog, but big and heavy ears can be very painful.
