Marvin went to the vet a few weeks back for a check up. The vet did some research and found that we can apply Marvin's steroid topical ointment to other places on his body beside his ears. We made the switch and it's working so much better! I've not heard him have any asthma attacks at all. Now I'm gonna see if we can reduce the dose and if he keeps this up, I'll bring him back to work.
