Signs and symptoms of ear problems in pets
Ear infections are very common amongst cats and dogs and can cause severe irritation and discomfort in your beloved pet. Some animals, particularly hounds, are more susceptible to ear infections than others due to the particular structure of their outer ears.
Common signs of ear infection are
- Shaking of the head and ears
- Scratching or rubbing the ears and face
- Discharge or even bleeding from the ears
- Foul smell coming from the ears
- Sensitivity to touching in the ear area
- General irritability
There are a number of causes of ear infection and common culprits include bacteria, yeasts and mites. Less commonly, allergies may have a role to play in inflammation and subsequent infection of the ears.
What are ear mites?
Ear mites, or Otodectes cynotis, are small, parasitic creatures that usually live in the ears of your pets causing severe itching and inflammation. These mites can also live on the head or body of dogs and cats with the same effects. They are often large enough to see with the naked eye, can live off a pet’s skin for some time and are very mobile, allowing easy movement between host animals. These mites are highly contagious and will spread between pets in the same household very easily. They may affect both cats and dogs and even humans may pick up these little critters. Secondary infections in pets with ear mites are common and generally involve bacteria or yeasts.
