I'm getting a pit bull tonight and her ears were sealed shut but now her right ear seems to getting better. but the left ear is still swollen shut. We thought she was deaf but now were starting to wonder if her ears are just infected. Can someone plz help me????
This is a serious issue and you need to take the dog to the vet. I think you should live the dog with the breeder, and make them get the dog vet care. It is there responsibilty to make sure the dog is healthy when you take the dog home. You do know that people can get them..........right?
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
What do you mean sealed shut??? Did the dog have its ears clipped? Certain kind of mites are transferable to human. I don't think ear mites are though. Sounds like an ear infection. Swollen and red probably. Could be swollen from scratching. Mites can irritate, then cause scratching, then get infected. If this is a breeder you're getting it from, tell them to get it taken care of first.
Whoever said you can't buy happiness, must have never owned a dog!!!!!!!!!!!
WindyValley-- Please do NOT scare people about ear mites they are NOT considered a Zoonotic disease. Maybe in a few RARE cases of 'cat ladies' living in extremely close contact to a hoard of infested cats-- they have got them, but that is not the norm.
In general ear mites do not transmit to people.
