my dog has both ears equally swollen but although he is now shaking his head he has not done this pr
Would need a little bit more information: What kind of dog? Are the ears swollen inside or out (or both)? Is there any discharge from the ears? Redness? Bad smell? Does your dog go into water? Does you dog frequent areas where there are foxtails and other plant materials that could get inside?
Often dogs get ear infections if they do go into water and the water enters the ear canal. Also, dogs can get foreign bodies in their ears which are uncomfortable and can cause your dog to shake it's head.
Another problem is aural hematomas which are often caused by head shaking. You will often see the pinna, or ear flaps having a soft swelling.
Your dog should be seen by a vet to rule out any of these potential problems and be treated! Good luck.
The problem could also be ear mites. I have a feral cat that had one swollen ear. I took her to the vet and the ear had swollen due to head shaking. I never saw any head-shaking behaviour nor did I see her worrying her ears; but, I did see the swelling. Unbelievable though it might seem, she had ear mites. We got rid of the ear mites with no problem and she is back to her own good health.
my dog Cesar pass 2 years ago and he was doing that we took him to the Vet and $200. later they gave him a deep cleaning ear on both ears and he have to stay all day @ the vet.
he have a bad smell on his ears. but we love him after that he was good and happy.
If the actual ear is swollen like a balloon, looks like the flap is filled with fluid, it is probably a hematoma.
What happens is the dog gets ear mites or an ear infection, they scratch and scratch until they break a blood vessel in the ear, the ear fills with fluid.
If that is what it is, a vet is the only fix.
You have to treat the hematoma and the underlying cause. Without knowing what kind of swelling, that's the best guess I can give you.
Owners need to watch for signs of ear problems in dogs and take action at the first signs. Scratching at the ears, rubbing the ears against everything, red, swollen, discharge from the ears, crackling sounds in the ears, sounds like water in the ears, these are signs of ear infections.
Too much head shaking can cause the broken blood vessels and can most definitely require veterinary help and surgery to care for it along with a long recovery.
Avoid these bad side effects by just giving a good dog ear treatment right away when the dog shows signs of ear ache pain or ear infection symptoms.
It doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg, try non prescription natural dog ear medicine like Dr Dogs Ear Oil, it controls and prevents nasty flare ups in the ears and it's not expensive to use. Find it from http://www.drdogs247.com
