Hello All,

Yesterday I took my puppy in to be groomed and she plucked his ears. He'd had it done before but he didn't react this way. She said she put some sort of liquid in there and he would be shaking his head for a couple of days until he got it all out. I can't even lift his ears to look at them without him pulling away.

Last night and today he doesn't want anyone to touch his ears at all for any reason. He acts like he doesn't feel good and has just been kind of mopey since I picked him up. He's not shaking his head nearly as much today as he was yesterday.

Is it possible that they are just sore from plucking or should I be concerned? Would it be ok to give him a baby aspirin to help alleviate some of the soreness?

He's just not his usual boisterous self and I'm beginning to be a little worried. He's eating and drinking fine and potties fine so no worries there.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I have a client with a toy poodle who has had an ear infection ever since I started grooming her over a year ago. Whenever she brings her to me she'll say "Make sure to get her ear hair" the poor dogs ears are so infected there isn't even any hair to pluck. =/ I keep telling her to just take the dog to the vet, but I don't think she has..

I think I'm going to do the shaving the inside with my spoo, I've seen the inside of the ears of the line I'm getting him from and it doesn't grow in very thick to begin with.
