I also think Daisy's ear infection could be from her teeth...it's all connected. Do you know of a specialist that can see her if need be?
I don't know of a specialist unfortunately. We are leaving Korea in May but hopefully they come in before that. They are poking through more and more now. Toy breeds are pretty much the only kinds of dogs kept as pets in Korea so most veterinarians are very familiar with the tiny dog health problems and we go to a large clinic. Thankfully we're in a large city and not a small rural area. I'm going to give it a few more weeks to see how it goes. I'm assuming x rays would show how the teeth are below the gum line (well above since it's the upper teeth haha)
