Those Pesky Ear Mites
It's a problem both cats and dogs experience, and
these are the warning signs:
1. excessive and persistent scratching around the ears;
2. head shaking;
3. restless behavior;
4. the ears are painful to the touch and the pet may cry out in pain;
5. brown material present in the ears;
6. a foul-smelling odor.
The villain is ear mites, tiny parasites that live
on the surface of the skin lining in the ear canal.
They pierce the skin surface to feed, causing
inflammation and discomfort. If left untreated,
bacterial infections and loss of hearing may result.
Puppies and kittens can acquire an ear mite
infection from their mother. Ear mites can be
transmitted from one household pet to another.
If ear mites are present in a multiple-pet household
or a kennel or cattery, it is likely that if one
animal is treated, the mites will move to another
resident. The best preventive measure is to treat
all residents for mites.
Dogs with long, floppy ears are more prone to ear
mite infections. Air movement is restricted, promoting
infection and bacterial growth. When a dog shakes
its head excessively, blood vessels may rupture
and soft swellings form on the ear flap. This
condition is called hematoma and immediate treatment
is needed to avoid pain to the dog and possible
Good ear health is vital to the well being of your pet because
ear problems can have very serious consequences such as:
Discharge and odor
Painful blood clots
Costly vet bills
