Red ears

Discussion in 'Dog Health Care' started by Angel Chicken, Jan 28, 2008.

  1. Poor ol' Missy has some mighty red ears.

    However, I don't think it is an infection. Her ears aren't hurting her, she isn't pawing or scratching at them. They are just awfully red.

    I think they need to be cleaned. Any ideas on how I'd go about doing that?

    If they are red, they may be infected. Personally, I would have them looked at by the vet.
     
  3. Well... if she were my dog, she'd already be there.

    I have told Mary to keep an eye on them, but being the old homebody she is, I highly doubt she'd take Missy to the vet unless Missy was yelping in pain :rolleyes:

    my dog's ears get red when she has a fever.

    Was she in a heated area when you looked at them? Or just exercised?

    Lizzie's tend to turn a nice bright red after being really hot (i.e. a long run or hot walk). But go back to her normal color about 30 minutes after that.
