Dog Ear Infection

An ear infection is an irritating and painful overgrowth of bacteria or yeast in the ear canal, usually caused by an underlying condition such as ear mites, a skin problem, or excess earwax.

 

The most common symptoms of an ear infection can include; ear scratching, pain, and head shaking. Pay attention to your pooch - a head tilt or loss of balance is a sign your dog’s infection has moved deeper into the ear.

 

Head Vet, Sean McCormack, of dog food company tails.com says ‘when it comes to treatment for an ear infection, always contact your vet, the quicker your dog is treated, the faster their recovery is likely to be.’
