Default ear problems

Is it common for cockapoo's to get ear infections ?
I think Oscar might have one. He was acting very strange a couple of days ago and now he keeps shaking his head and rubbing his ears on the carpet. It was driving him mad last night and he couldn't settle. He is very jumpy and not happy at all. I've booked him in at the vets this afternoon.

Ear infections are common for cockapoo's cause they have long ear flaps. As long as you wash and flush regularly they should be ok. Molly had one when she was 9 weeks old cause the breeder had given her a bath the day we picked her up and water got in there. You can tell if they have one cause they usually paw at their ears and rub their head on stuff and also if you sniff inside the ear you can tell. She was put on antibiotic ear drops and a flush and hasn't had one since.

I though barney had mites because he kept scratching his ears but he just had a build up of gunk in his ears. Some drops from the vet sorted it quickly but I now clean his ears regularly.

Willow had a yeast infection in her ears at nine weeks. She was given an ear wash and I put her on a food with no yeast.

He could have a grass seed in his ear, but you may not be able to see it. Hope the vet can help Oscar today x

Yes ear problems are very common and Lolly suffered terribly when she was little. I would have to clean horrible black gunk out of her ears daily. But then we changed her food to Barking Heads (from Arden Grange) and almost overnight she stopped having ear problems! Now her ears are never dirty and she hasn't had an infection since.

The food they eat can definitely affect their ears. Max has black waxy ears and scratched and shook his head a lot. Some ear drops and a raw diet and he has been ear problem free ever since.

Louis had/has ear mites, the vet said its quite common in puppies that haven't yet started their advocate treatment. She said cats are the worst culprits for spreading them, she asked if we have cats in the garden which we don't have many but I noticed one a couple of times before we picked him up. Also he was playing with one at the breeders when we got him.

He had been on drops when we went back for his second shot but they hadn't quite cleared so hopefully the advocate will have finished the job. I have to try and do his ears when he is asleep though as he is not keen.

It's also quite difficult to clean them, can only really get to the outer ear but when the nurse put the ear light in it goes deeper and came out covered in gunk. Hopefully the gunk works it way up the ear.
