Poor Noonie has been battling terrible ear infections for almost a year now. We have went to numerous vets and tried everything short of surgery. My husband tells me that he is taking him in next week for surgery. The vet said he'll have some hearing loss. But as long as he's better I guess it's worth it. I'll be home in a couple of weeks and hopefully by then he'll be fully recovered. I can't help but be a little worried though.
