How will I know if my pet has an ear problem? What can I look for?

In some cases there are no obvious symptoms at all but here are some symptoms to look for:

  • Head shaking
  • Head tilt
  • Scratching the ear with paws or on other surfaces
  • Painful ears when touched
  • Redness or swelling of the ear
  • Hot or unusually warm ear
  • Discharge from the ear
  • An odor from the ear
  • Darker fur on rear paw from scratching infected ear

Other problems can be deeper down into the ear canals and would require a thorough exam by your veterinarian. If left untreated, these problems can cause chronic pain and infection leading to more obvious symptoms.
