Ear Infections Are Common Issues for Pets
Ear infections are a common issue for dogs, cats, and other pets, especially in areas of the country where it's warm most of the year. These infections are caused by bacteria that get into the ears. Once ear infections develop, they need prompt treatment. Keeping your pet's ears clean can help reduce the chances of infection, but if one does occur, our veterinarian can help treat it so it goes away quickly.
Treating an Ear Infection May Require Antibiotics
Generally, ear infections require antibiotics for treatment. While it's true that there are over-the-counter ear drop options, these are just for keeping the ears clean and dislodging wax and debris. They aren't for treating infections, which may make your pet's ears red and warm. You may also notice that your pet’s infected ears have an unpleasant smell, and that your dog or cat is doing a lot of scratching and digging at his ears. These are symptoms of an ear infection and should be checked out by our vet so treatment can begin. With a course of antibiotics, your pet should be feeling better in no time.
