Pets & VETS by Kate Pillsbury, DVM A COMMON PROBLEM Ear infections are a common problem for dogs, and they can crop up quickly and painfully. This affliction can occur for many reasons, especially in breeds with floppy ears. Part of the problem is due to the shape of the dogs' ear canals, which tend to be vertical with an "L" bend. Other reasons include ear mites, allergies, yeast, and internal hair growth. If your pooch is scratching its ears, shaking its head, losing its balance, or whining, it may be signaling an ear problem. Check also for a discharge or odor combined with redness or swelling around the tender ear. Immediate attention by the veterinarian will usually include cleaning the ear and administering medication There is no reason why your pet should suffer with ear problems when treatment is so close at hand at Cody Pet Hospital IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT EAR INFECTIONS, OR IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR PET'S HEALTH, PLEASE CALL US AT (508) 384-5904.
