Ohrenentzündungen bei Hunden – Ein häufiges Problem im Blick

Ear Infections in Dogs – A Common Problem to Consider

7 minutes

Ear infections are one of the typical health problems in dogs and can affect animals of all breeds and ages. In this article we will inform you about the causes, signs and treatment options for ear infections as well as how you can effectively protect your dog from them.

Causes of Ear Infections

An ear infection in dogs, also known as otitis, can be caused by various factors. Bacteria or yeast are often the triggers, but parasites, allergies, foreign bodies or excessive moisture in the ear can also lead to inflammation.

Symptoms and early detection

Signs of an ear infection are often visible and recognizable: shaking the head, scratching the ears, redness, unpleasant odor, swelling or discharge are warning signs. Changes in behavior such as lack of motivation or aggression should also be responded to attentively.

Dangers and complications

Without timely treatment, an ear infection can lead to chronic problems, hearing loss or, in the worst case, the infection spreading to the inner ear and vestibular system. That's why it's important to consult a veterinarian at the first signs.

Treatment and veterinary care

Treatment for an ear infection usually involves a combination of cleaning, medication and sometimes allergy testing. The veterinarian can suggest customized therapy depending on the cause and severity of the inflammation.

Prevention and care of the ears

Regular ear checks and care play a significant role in preventing ear infections. Gently cleaning the outer ear areas can help remove excess wax and dirt, reducing the risk of inflammation.

Long-term prevention if you are prone to ear problems

Dogs prone to ear disease require careful management and close collaboration with the treating veterinarian. Good management includes regular checks, adjusting the care routine and, if necessary, changing the diet.

Conclusion: Vigilance and care are crucial

  • Ear infections are common illnesses in dogs and can have a variety of causes.
