How to Tell if Your Dog's Ear Is Infected

Dogs can develop ear infections from yeast, bacteria, ear mites and other organisms that can cause ear inflammation. These infections should be properly treated in order to reduce the risk of complications. At Nall Hills Animal Hospital in Overland Park KS, our veterinary team can diagnose and treat ear infections in dogs.

Signs and Symptoms of Ear Infections in Dogs

When dogs have ear infections, they do not always show obvious symptoms. How do you know if your dog has this type of infection? When symptoms are present, dogs might shake their head, tilt their head or paw at their ear. In severe cases, dogs might not be able to hear well.

Ear Infection Diagnosis in Overland Park

Dogs should have their ears examined if there are any signs of a possible ear infection. At Nall Hills Animal Hospital, our vet will do tests to determine if there is an ear infection and what is causing it. Finding the cause helps ensure that your dog receives the right treatment. 

Treatments for Ear Infections in Dogs

If your dog has a mild ear infection, our vet will provide you with medication, most likely topical, to treat it. Starting treatment as soon as possible helps prevent the infection from getting worse. Our vet will discuss treatment options with you after diagnosing your dog.
