This is as it pertains to routine/expected things. Obviously excludes making the necessary decisions at end of life.

For me, it’s cleaning ears. I have a German Shepherd and I swear his brain cells leak out as earwax. I was 2 knuckles deep a few mins ago with cotton balls removing gunk from one ear.

Definitely better once I switched to a grain free food, since apparently food allergies/sensitivities manifest as gunky irritated ears.

But still, yucko.

What’s your least favorite pet responsibility? In as much as clipping toenails is also a pain in the ass, I find ear cleaning worse.
