Why Is My Dog Scratching His Ears?
Acute itching? Not so cute.
My dog’s scratching a lot. Is it a problem?
When your dog reaches a hind foot for a nice scratch, that’s normal. When your furry pal keeps scratching or pawing at their ears and head, it’s time for a check up at the vet. Your dog could be scratching because of:
- Something caught in the ear
- Skin problems
- Too much earwax
- An ear infection
- A cut or injury
Dog ears are super sensitive. Visit the vet right away if you notice any of these:
- A mass or lump
My dog seems extra itchy after playing outside. What’s that about?
A few things in the canine world can cause some serious itching. It could be an allergy, but it could also be fleas, ticks or insect bites. It’s also possible your dog is sensitive to any lawn chemicals you may use. Again, talk to your vet if you notice unusual amounts of scratching.
