General information on Ear Mites
Ear Mites are insect parasites that are common in dogs. The mites can move down the ear canal and infect the middle ear; such an infection will cause the affected animal to lose its sense of balance. The dog may be unable to hold its head straight or may constantly fall over.
Symptoms of Ear Mites
The symptoms of ear mites are persistent scratching, head-shaking, build-up of wax in ears dotted with black specks, loss of balance and falling over.
Treatments for Ear Mites
Seek veterinarian care. In mild cases, ear drops will be prescribed. Mites are easily treated if caught early enough.
