Worried about Corgan
Hi Everyone - Some of you may remember me, I have Corgan, a 1 1/2 year old blenheim. Lately, he's been scratching his ear. Tonight he did it until he yelped. We cleaned the ear and it was perfectly clean - no infection. Also, he's been rubbing his whole face/head on the ground and scooting around, seemingly trying to scratch. I thought maybe he just needed a bath, so I gave him one and he started doing it again a few hours after the bath. I was really hoping he was scratching from an ear infection, but now I just don't know. If it were just the scratching, I wouldn't be suspicious - it's not that often/long that he does it. But, he's been doing the face-scoot for a couple of weeks now and I'm concerned. Does this sound like it should be SM? Are there any "tests" I can do at home to see if he responds in a typical "SM way" or anything?
Thanks very much - I appreciate any information you can offer me.
