New Year fizzle

So 2016 hasn’t exactly started off as amazingly as I was hoping, in fact it’s been quite the fizzle.
Bolt, my sisters beautiful dog, that I have blogged about many times, is unwell. Last night NYE, we noticed some swelling in his ear flap and this morning the Vet has confirmed that it is a blood clot and that Bolt would need to be operated on. 
Bolt has always had problems with his ears but nothing this extreme – he didn’t appear to be in any pain or discomfort last night, nor this morning but he did start shaking his head vigorously again which according to the vet is what has caused the blood clot in the first place. 
For a 13 year old dog surgery of any kind is a big deal, so we are all anxious at the moment, it doesn’t help that Bolt is actually my nephews dog and he is currently overseas. 

So to reiterate 2016 has not begun as I had hoped!! Get well Bolt xxx

  1. Best wishes to Bolt, but the dog that I dog sit for half of the month had one, and they drained it -and it came back… which is not uncommon, but it soon settled. For the most part, it just stays in a constant state of slightly swollen as the body reabsorbs the blood, and very seldom gives him any trouble. It is not uncommon, at all, for that to happen, especially with the bigger dogs. Let us know how it goes!
