1264. Itchy ears in a young beagle and a poodle

Saturday Dec 14, 2013

"Floppy eared dogs like the beagle, cocker spaniel and poodle tend to have ear problems," I said to a young fair lady with a heart-shaped face. She would be in her mid 20s.

"This is because the ears are covered up, being floppy eared. So there is no ventilation. Water from the shampoo and broken hairs are trapped inside at the horizontal canal," I explained.  The dog also had anal sac infections with lots of dark brown oil expressed. 

This morning, I had another case of ear scratching using the back legs.
