Inflammation of the external ear (otitis externa) is a very common ailment in dogs, especially floppy-eared breeds, and often indicates an infection. Even though there are many underlying causes of otitis, most cases respond quickly to treatment especially if the initiating cause is addressed. The sooner we see the pet with ear problems, the easier the treatment may be. Once your dog exhibits symptoms of otitis, please give us a call.

Symptoms of otitis include:

  • Odor or discharge from the ear
  • Scratching or shaking of the head or ears
  • Soreness or inflamation
  • Swelling of the ear flap

Otitis has many initiating causes such as flea allergies, pollen or other environmental allergies, food allergies, ear mites, foreign bodies, hormone imbalances, anatomical abnormalities( polyps/tumors in the ears) and water getting in the ears. Yeast or bacterial infection will complicate otitis; however, these germs do not start an ear problem.

If you notice any of these symptoms or have any questions about your dog, please make an appointment for your dog to see your veterinarian.
