Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear this.
Is the ear canal red, smelly or full of discharge?
Are her gums pink. and wet?
Without further information it is very difficult for me to provide the best advice but I shall certainly try. Please reply when you can and we can continue the conversation.
From what you have said, I would very much want a vet to look in her ears. I would consider e.g.
A bacterial or fungal infection
A foreign body within the canal
An ear polyp
The vet will look inside the canal and may swab any discharge for a culture and sensitivity test.
Ear infections can make a dog feel unwell and they cause significant pain but we would also want to ensure there isn't something else going on.
I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any further questions,
Hi there, this is just Dr Linda checking in. How is everything going?
