Apologies for the delayed response, we’ve had some technical issues yesterday and I couldn’t see your reply! I am glad you spoke with your local vet and I am hopeful there’s nothing serious happening with Rufus. It might just be due to heat really, but still, my best recommendation would be to have him examined at your local practice. My worst fear with otitis is a foreign body down the ear canal, so I always tend to recommend a.full otoscopic examination.
