Our Tip of the Day:
Just like humans, dogs and cats can be affected by ear infections. Ear infections can be caused by bacteria or yeast, and sometimes even ear mites. Some furbabies are more prone to ear infections, and those who may be more susceptible include those with allergies, and those with especially hairy ears or floppy outer ears that create an enclosed inner ear environment. Keep an eye out for signs such as scratching at the ears, shaking of the head, redness or swelling inside or around the ear, a yeasty or any odor emitting from the ear, and flattening or abnormal posture of the ears. If you see any of these or other concerning signs, consult your veterinarian. Keeping the ears clean and dry is very important and can be done at home, but only with care and caution, as infection or damage to the ear can be caused or worsened by improper cleaning methods. For proper at-home ear care for your particular furbaby, it is best to consult your veterinarian.
