Hello

I don’t know if my little boy has an ear infection or mite? His teeth are still coming through. Could it be this, just like kids. He only has one ear with a little wax, they don’t smell, I got the stuff from vet to break down wax. Which it did. It was brown. Not a lot. But his always scratching his ears and jaw .. is there any natural treatments that I can do? And how much do I pot in his ears? Do I put it right in the ear drum? I’ve heard of apple cider vinegar or a bit of coconut oil..
Thanks

Peggy did scratch at her jaw a lot while she was in the early stages of teething, but 7 months seems awfully late for that. Could he have a dental issue maybe?

Itchy ears can also signal a food or environmental allergy. Are his paws itchy, too? Any other symptoms, like diarrhea?

It sounds like an ear infection. If he is scratching his jaw, the pain is going down. I would see the vet. Better safe than sorry, ear infections are painful.

thanks Peggy

I ended up doing vet prescription ear wax cleaner - didn’t work then I did a natural apple cider vinegar and water rinse followed by a little bit of olive oil, I feel his hasn’t scratched mad. So it could have been a allergy which this fixed it.
he went through late teething and tends to scratch his jaw where this teeth are coming through. So it’s just like a child I discovered
All in all, he is doing great. Thank you
