Otitis externa (commonly known as an ear infection) is an inflammation or infection of the external ear canal. Bacteria, yeast, ear mites, allergies and hormone imbalances can all cause otitis externa. Once an ear infection starts you may see your pet scratching at their ears, shaking their head or holding one ear slightly dropped. Discharge and odour may be noticeable as well.More
Food allergies are the over-response of your pet’s immune system to a protein in the diet. While most people recognize that meats are a source of proteins, there are also proteins present in grains and vegetables. Any one of these proteins has the potential to cause a food allergy.
