Itchy Ears

Herbal remedies for relief of itchy ears in cats and dogs to help stop itching and scratching.

The immune system is a complex array of cells that are found throughout the body. Immune cells are designed to function with all other cells to provide a fortified defense against unwanted invaders. The complexity of the immune system requires a multidimensional approach of nutritional factors directed at facilitating normal function and is not intended to be suppressive or stimulating, but in cases of dysfunction, requires whole body systemic support.

Itchy ears are a very common condition that affects both cats and dogs. When your pet scratches and shakes his head uncontrollably, scratches his ears or rubs them against you, the couch or carpet, something may be causing them to itch.

There are a number of reasons that can cause your pet to paw their ears and these include ear mites, allergies to food, airborne particles or toxins, dry skin (seborrhoea), liver dysfunction, polyps, a thyroid condition or even foreign objects that may be lodged in them. This condition tends to more prevalent in hairy-eared dogs such as terriers and poodles.

Other common symptoms and signs of itchy ears include if your pet is tilting his head to one side, has trouble with balance or scratches persistently during the warmer months.

If you notice that your pet scratches his ears frequently, has dark debris in their ears, dry skin or scabs around the ears, there is foul smell emanating from them or they are swollen, then you should see your vet.
