Brady doesn't feel well

I noticed the other day that Brady has been scratching his ear. I looked in it yesterday and it is red with some scrapes and scabs. I noticed this last night and planned to call the vet this morning. Well, now he is also very sick to his stomach. He had diarrhea before we went to bed and then woke me twice during the night to go outside. He also threw up once during the night (mostly bile). I don't know if this can all be related. I called the vet and he has an 11:15 appointment. He did eat though. I gave him a very small portion of a tiny amount of kibble and boiled chicken and he scarfed it down. My boy does love to eat and I would be paniced if he wouldn't touch food.

Poor Brady!

Did you smell his ear? An ear infection smells. Someone else recently posted about ear mites. I wonder if he picked some up somewhere. (I would guess that ear mites would be itchy, and an ear infection would not be.)

I bet the symptoms are all related, whether his ear is bothering him as a reaction to something (allergic?) or his stomach is reacting to an infection/irritation in his ear. I hope your vet can figure it out easily.

I have 2 cats in the house and I haven't noticed them scratching their ears at all. I would think if it were ear mites, they would have them too. I wouldn't say he is scratching it a ton, just enough for me to notice something isn't right. Now, he was just tormenting the cat chasing him room to room and he is now chewing a bully stick next to me. I am pleased that he seems to be acting somewhat normal. I just tried to small his ear and I really don't smell anything. It is just really red in there. Poor guy. My heart breaks knowing he doesn't feel well.

I wonder if it could be something as simple as a bug bite or a small scratch. No matter what, I hope it gets fixed soon. It sounds good that he's acting fine. That's a good sign.

Oh, Karen and Brady!

I'm So sorry to hear that! I hope the vet figures out what is wrong and gets him some medicine to heal him quickly for Christmas!

You know, I just went through that odd-mysterious illness with Gucci and I know how stressed out and anxiety-ridden I was! Its the worst not knowing what is wrong and not being able to *fix* them right away. Big kisses to Brady and please let us know what the vet says!

Hugs from me and kisses from Gucci!

Karen, we are so sorry to hear about Brady!! I know that when mine had ear infections their ears were very red. And if I recall, they also didnt feel well, I guess just like any child. He might have a fever from the infection.
Knowing that you hike with him on a regular basis so I am sure you use the flea;tick meds, but could it be possible it is lymes? Let us know!
Kisses to Brady from the 4 L's

Karen, i am sorry to hear about Brady. I hope he gets better soon. All 3 of my dogs now have bacteria & yeast infections in their ears. So i know what you are going thru. I am not sure what is going on. My vet thinks they may have allergies but nothing has changed here at home. Jax has had ear problems since i got him.
PLease keep us posted on what happens today.

Oh, my poor Brady. I have had an ear infection for a week and I know how he feels. I've been dizzy, nauseous. Eating is a good sign. Hope he feels better soon.
