Ear mites are common pests who take up residence in the ears of dogs and cats. These tiny creatures can cause big discomfort, including such symptoms as itching, pain, infection and inflammation. Your dog may react by shaking his head or pawing at his ear constantly. Be on the lookout for a foul odor, a discharge that resembles coffee grounds in the ear, and dark-colored secretions. All that scratching and pawing can also cause hematomas and secondary bacterial infections; these may grow progressively worse until your dog lose his hearing in the affected ear, even with corrective surgery to repair the damage.
