Ear Infection                   Cost

Though any pet can get an ear infection, those with hairy or floppy ears are particularly prone to them. Ear infections commonly occur when the ear canal becomes inflamed as a result of factors such as parasites, allergies or bacteria.

Signs to look for:
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Scratching
  • Oozing
  • Foul Order
  • Head tilt

Advances in veterinary medicine can improve your pet’s quality of life. With coverage from VPI, you can afford to spend even more healthy years with your pet.
