• Loki is having problems with his right ear. He keeps scratching it and shakes his head to flap his ears. He's acting like he can't hear well and it's tender to the touch. He has also been chewing the top of his right front paw so much that it was bleeding. He also eats the pads on the bottom until they bleed. Karma has an appointment Saturday can I bring Loki with me to see the vet or do I need to come in sooner?

    Hi Michelle,
    I recommend that you take Loki into see a veterinarian sooner than Saturday if possible. The symptoms that you are describing can all be related and from your description, he is likely uncomfortable. Your vet can talk to you more about the causes of his symptoms and the treatment that he needs after they have examined him.
