Ear Care

Inflammation of the external ear (otitis externa) is a very common ailment in dogs.  Often there is an infection present.  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 dog with otitis, the easier the treatment may be.  Once your dog exhibits symptoms of otitis, please give us a call.

Symptoms of otitis include:

Causes of Otitis:

Otitis has many initiating causes such as allergies, ear mites, foreign bodies, hormone imbalances, conformation of ear (floppy ears), excessive wax, polyps/tumors in ears, bathing/swimming. Yeast or bacterial infection will complicate otitis; however, these germs do not start an ear problem. When we treat Otitis we need to get rid of the infection as well as try to assess the underlying cause to prevent infections in the future.
