We have a 5 yr old pit terrier, her ears are not cut. She continually shakes her head which in turn causes hematomas. We have had them drained and stitched, but she continues to shake her head. My vet says that her ears are clean and no infection. We have thought about having her ears clipped but the vet states that it would be too traumatizing at this age. She chews her feet and drags her bum. We are trying a new diet right now just in case there is a food allergy. Any suggestions regarding the ears? We feel as though we are running out of options.
This sounds like allergies. I recommend anti-histamines. Talk to your vet about medication such as benadryl. vetcare
