All About Pet Ear Infections
Pet ear infections are typically not the same as ear infections that humans experience. When we suffer from an ear infection, the problem usually resides in the middle ear behind the eardrum. While pets can also suffer from this, they most commonly have trouble in the external ear canal and ear flap (pinna). This is called otitis externa.
