Is your pet exhibiting symptoms like scratching or pawing at the ears, head shaking, whining, rubbing the ears on furniture and strange odors? They could be experiencing an ear infection. Ear ailments can occur often in dogs and cats and are the result of an assortment of causes.
Ear infections and ailments can be painful and very uncomfortable for your you pet.
Like with any health concern, your vet will need to gather a comprehensive history and complete a full exam to determine the cause and create the best plan of treatment. Your veterinarian will examine your pet’s ear, eardrum and ear canal with an otoscope before completing a diagnosis. Some dogs and cats may require anesthesia or sedation to complete a proper evaluation. Be sure to check and recheck the ear after each phase of treatment to insure proper healing.
