Scrappy is a 1-year old Shar-Pei mix that just had to undergo entropion eye surgery. This is when the skin around the eye rolls in and the fur rubs the cornea. The APA! Clinic team has repaired his eye and it is healing well, but unfortunately Scrappy also has a severe chronic ear infection that after time has closed around the ear canal. This is very painful for Scrappy and he needs a Total Earanal Ablation, where the ear canal is removed entirely. Without this procedure Scrappy will continue to have a chronic ear infection and be in pain.
