Does your dog have that sheepish look? It could be that he's embarrassed of his ear mite problem! All this time you thought he just had a bad case of ear wax like your Uncle Henry, when really he's been suffering from an annoying condition that's itching like mad... not to mention, making him wildly unpopular with the other dogs in the neighborhood! Pretty irritating.
Lots of dogs pick up ear mites, so tell your pup that it's nothing to be ashamed of. Ear mites are easily transmitted from animal to animal. Your dog may have contracted them from just about anywhere... another dog in the household, the family cat, or even that Weimeraner he was cavorting with in the dog park last week.
If you think your dog may have somehow picked up ear mites, be on the lookout for the following symptoms:
- Pawing at the ears
- Redness and irritation
- Thick, black earwax
You can do a little "ear mite check" at home, assuming you've got good eyes. Run a cotton swab along the outside of your dog's ear, then hold the cotton swab up to the light to have a closer look. If it's ear mites, you'll see what looks like miniscule white fuzzies moving around. That's not lint... it's ear mites! Yikes. That poor pooch of yours is feeling a little uncomfortable on account of his ear cooties. Help him get some relief.
Many pet stores offer over-the-counter topical ear mite medications, but it's best to bring your pup in for a vet checkup just in case you've misdiagnosed. Your vet will be able to confirm the condition, prescribe a treatment and recommend length and frequency of application. If your dog's ear "smells a little funky," then it's definitely time to schedule a vet appointment, no ifs ands or butts about it.
Ear mites aren't life-threatening, but most people would agree that letting parasites habitate on your dog's body for an indefinite amount of time is not good pet owner practice. You wouldn't want creepy critters crawling around in your own ears, would you? I didn't think so.
Time to take care of those ear mites!

5 Tips For Choosing the Best Vet For Your Dog
Find a vet, if possible, who specializes in small animals (as opposed to one who treats large and small - like horses, cows, cats and dogs.) Your community may only have vets that do a little bit of everything - and there's nothing wrong with that, if that's all that's available, but I'll remind you - you usually go to a specialist for your health issues, don't you?If you're new in the community, or haven't needed a vet before - word of mouth is a great way to start looking for a new vet.

Price of Unconditional Love

Why Cats Flip For Catnip
If you've ever watched as a cat "flipped" over fresh catnip perhaps you've been struck with the question; "what causes Catnip to affect cats that way?" Catnip is indeed an unusual phenomenon among cats, it has the ability to alter your cat's behavior like nothing else can. So what exactly is the reason for what scientists have coined as "the Catnip effect"?Unfortunately for such inquisitive minds the exact reason of why Catnip affects cats in such a manner remains mostly a mystery.

Personal Pet Check-Ups
For all pet owners, regular monitoring and "examinations" of your pet will give you a better idea of the animal's overall health and prove as good "quality" time for both you and your pet. Also, this may help you catch a problem in the early phases and certainly before it becomes life threatening.
