Poor Bullet has allergies. His ears bear the brunt of the irritation. I'd run out of antihistamine for him a week or so ago. Last night, they were bugging him so much that he woke me up at 02:30 flapping his ears nonstop.
I managed to find some antihistamine for him in a cupboard, and he eventually settled down again, around 03:30 this morning. So when they opened, I called his vet. Unfortunately, they were all booked up the rest of the week, due to holidays, and couldn't see him until next week.
So I came up with an idea, to try to prevent not only the flapflapflap of his big old ears, but to also limit the risk of my house looking like a slaughterhouse if he splits an ear tip! As much as he was shaking his head, he would paint my ceilings red with the blood from a split ear tip.
I repurposed one of my cycling tubular bandanas into a doggie snood!
He seems to be tolerating it better than I expected. With this, and his collar off, he doesn't make much noise now. Maybe I will be able to sleep tonight?
