How to Tell If Your Dog Has an Ear Infection

Ear infections are a common problem for dogs, and they can be very uncomfortable. Here are some signs to look out for if you suspect your dog has an ear infection: 

Scratching or rubbing at their ears

Shaking their head Redness or swelling in the ear Unpleasant odor coming from the ear

Discharge or pus in the ear If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to take your dog to the vet as soon as possible. Ear infections can be caused by a variety of factors, including allergies, bacteria, or yeast, and they can lead to more serious health problems if left untreated. 

Our Vet at Dr.C.M.’s Pet Clinic will be able to diagnose the cause of your dog’s ear infection and prescribe the appropriate treatment. This may include medication, ear drops, or a special diet. In some cases, surgery may be necessary. 

To prevent ear infections in the future, make sure to clean your dog’s ears regularly and keep them dry. Avoid getting water in your dog’s ears during baths or swimming, and be sure to dry their ears thoroughly afterwards.
