Signs that your pet is having skin or ear problems

Here are some common reasons to seek immediate attention for your pet's skin and ear problems:

  • Scratching or Chewing - If your pet is chewing itself or scratching excessively, it may be a sign of an allergies, infection or external parasites, such as fleas or mites. This can eventually lead to bleeding.
  • Hair Loss - This can be the result of biting or scratching, but may also be a sign of an undiagnosed internal illness.
  • Foul odor – An unpleasant odor from the ears or skin can be indicative of an advanced infection or a deep wound that requires aggressive treatment.
  • Head shaking - Ear infections and allergies are typically the cause of head shaking. Excessive head shaking can lead to large blood blisters in the ear flap that complicate treatment of the underlying issue.
  • Skin tumors – They can become large quickly and may eventually rupture, ulcerate, bleed or become infected. Prompt evaluation of problematic skin tumors is an important part of successful treatment.
