Ear infections in Dogs

Ear infections represent one of the top 10 reasons dogs are brought to veterinarians and they may affect up to 20 percent of dogs. Ear infections can be very hard to deal with. They're not always identified properly, they can be painful and difficult to treat - and they can come back.Treatment usually consists of using medications directly in the ear. It can take a couple of weeks to fully recover. If your dog has chronic infections, like the patient I mentioned above, the treatment's not over even when the medication's run its course.Getting the medications in the dog and staying on top of the infection can be a real struggle.It can take running ear cultures, administering different rounds of antibiotics, and giving aggressive cleanings to deal with the problem. Some dogs behave very well for their treatments and others become stressed out and scared.
Some of the most important things to know about ear infections is that they are common, they are easier to treat when you first see them or suspect a problem, and they can come back without proper treatment.

What can you do to prevent ear infections? Check your dog's ears a couple of times a week (or sooner if you see your dog shaking his head or scratching at his ears). Keep an eye out for any discharge that is black, yellow, or bloody, swelling or redness, or any foul smells coming from your dog's ears. See your vet at the first sign of a problem.
