Poor baby Wicket just had a foxtail extracted from her left ear. After getting home from the park yesterday, Wicket started squealing and crying and I had no idea why. I noticed she was walking with her head tilted and shaking her head. When i touched her left ear she started crying again. I took her to the vet today and there was pus inside her ear. The doctor needed to sedate her to explore deeper inside her ear because she was in so much pain. He found a large foxtail embedded inside her tympanic membrane and when he pulled it out there was a lot of bleeding. Thankfully, the membrane will heal on its own in a few weeks but were not sure if itll have any long term effects to her hearing. I had no idea foxtails were so dangerous.
