Hi! My name is Smevs and I’m an 8 year old tricolor boy. I came into rescue because my owner couldn’t care for me anymore. I have a grade 5 heart murmur and bilateral perforated eardrums which caused me to aspirate my food because it hurt to swallow. Then I got aspiration pneumonia. I have vestibular problems caused by my ear infection that will hopefully disappear once my ear problems are healed because right now I kind of walk like a drunken sailor with a head tilt. My foster mom has me on the road to recovery. Thankfully, I am out of the oxygen cage but she keeps putting those yucky eardrops in my ears and waving a nebulizer in my face. Hopefully, this ends very soon. She keeps one of those eardrops in the refrigerator (I don’t know why….it doesn’t seem like it would be a tasty thing to eat!!!) and it freezes my ears!! I have to go back to puppy doctor next week to see how my pneumonia and ears are doing. They’re probably going to do that hurtey thing to my ears again and clean them out some more. I think I’m going to need a lot of puppy snacks to make up for this!!
