How do I distinguish ear mites from an ear infection in my dog? My puppy Maltese rubs his right ear on the floor and rolls around growling. We got him several days ago and he was ok on the first day, this started on the 2nd day. I reckon he got them during our trip to a vet but I wanted to ask if anyone has an idea what it can be and what symptoms I should look out for.
It does sound like ear mites but we can't possibly know without looking at him.. Visit or call your vet and consult with him.
my dog is also kind of weird....He sleeps with his tongue hanging out!
