Q. I have a 2 yr old Australian cattle dog whose ears have not stood up. She has symptoms of an ear infection but they are not severe. Is it an infection
DAVID ELBEZE, DVM, MRCVS
A. If she has symptoms of ear infection (scratching, head shaking) 99% that she has an ear infection. This means she will need prescription ear drops prescribed by a vet.
If one of the ears has dropped, check it well as she might also be suffering from an ear hematoma (blood filled pinea). This is also something that will need to be treated.
