  Your dog’s head shaking or ear scratching could be something more serious than mild discomfort. It could be otitis externa, a painful condition which can spread to the middle ear and may even cause hearing loss if not treated. Watch this quick video to see what otitis externa looks like on the inside. If your dog shows signs of itching or pain, come see us for a thorough ear check.
