Dog Ears & Cat Ears, Ear Problems, Ear Care, Ear Maintenance

Ears tell you if your pet is happy, sad, angry, or concerned. Your pet’s ears are extremely sensitive organs and need very special care. Keep in mind, pets with allergies are more likely to develop ear infections. Dogs with ear infections might need your help to flush their ears clean. Be careful when you apply ear medications and don’t massage too firmly. Watch for signs of ear mites, particularly in young pets or those you’ve adopted from a shelter.
