Dog scratching ears

We’ve all seen pets scratch at their ears and shake their heads around as they deal with even the most minor ear problems. However, letting ear irritation just hang around and not utilizing a pet ear product can lead to devastating effects.

Here are some of the telltale signs that your pet’s ears aren’t letting them live their happiest lives, and how ZYMOX can get them healthy again!

Common Ear Problems in Pets

Otitis Externa is a common issue that many dogs and cats face with their ears. While these ear infections may seem like something that should run its course, the facts are that an ignored ear infection can come with permanent consequences. Not only will your pets continue to have irritated or painful ears, but an infection that is unresolved can lead to:

  • Deafness
  • Facial Paralysis
  • Vestibular Disorders

Knowing the signs of your pet’s discomfort could make the difference between having a healthy, happy companion and a miserable one. Here are some of the unique signs of ear irritation within dogs and cats.

Signs of Ear Issues in Dogs

It’s very simple to know when your dog is experiencing ear irritation. From itching to ear flapping, the signs are both visible and odorous in some situations. Some of the most common signs of ear problems with dogs include:

  • Ear canal swelling
  • Odor
  • Discharge
  • Scabs or crust forming in the outer section of the canal

Signs of Ear Issues in Cats

Although cats also have similar symptoms of discoloration and odorous discharge, there are a couple of signs of ear problems that are unique to the species. If your cat’s ear irritation advances to the point of severe discomfort your pet may:
