Symptoms of Ear Infections

If your dog has an ear infection, she may shake her head frequently and scratch at her ears. Look for any redness and pus coming out of your dog's ears. A bad odor may also be another sign of an ear infection.

Be especially careful with breeds like the Cocker Spaniel, Golden retriever, and Basset hound, which are prone to ear infections.
