puppy ear problem
My new puppy ( I had him 3 days) keep on shaking his head and whining, I think it his ear.
What can I do until I have the funds to take him to the vet . My dog is 3 months old poodle
It could be that your pup has an ear infection, or ear mites, or even dog allergies. All of these can cause head-shaking and scratching.
Only a vet can make an accurate diagnosis though and recommend the best treatment (if any is needed). I know that vet care can be costly, but it's absolutely vital to your puppys' health.
When you bring a new puppy home it's important to realize that they are going to cost you quite a bit during the first few weeks/months (depending on their age). They need ongoing, preventative veterinary care and have to be kept up to date with their puppy shots, deworming treatments and so on.
I'd recommend that you take your pup to a vet as soon as you can to make sure he's up to date on vaccinations etc., and to check out his ears. A problem treated early is generally cured more quickly, and with less expense.
Hope this helps some, I wish you the very best of luck with your pup.
