Is your dog shaking and scratching its head? My dear Nala was. I knew it was not fleas. But she keep itching behind her ears. In the past some of our German Shepherds had ear mites and once I looked into her ears I knew what she had.
Ear mite is when a dog has Otodectes cynotis (parasite infection) in the ear canal. These tiny eight-legged parasites can cause pain, inflammation, and irritation.
