If your dog often shakes his head, he may have problems with his ears. There are 4 types of problem that occur with the ears:

  • A foreign body, such as grass entering the ear canal, causing irritation and developing an infection
  • Water entering the ear canal, either during swimming or when washing the dog
  • Several types of parasites, which locate themselves in the ears and can be a constant source of irritation
  • Aural haematoma, a large fluid filled lump, caused by the dog scratching the ear or by contusion.

Veterinary attention should be sought for most ear problems and it is not advisable to try treating the infections yourself. Probing may damage the ear.
