Itching and Head Shaking
My Chihuahua, Sirenity, has been itching and shaking her head a lot, my boyfriend said I shouldn't worry "dogs get itches", but I know my dog. I think it could be something more serious, that could be because typing itching and head shaking in dogs into a search engine led me to sites about ear cancer, possible surgeries she may need, and other life threatening illnesses and procedures. I'm hoping fellow Chihuahua parents can help me better understand whats going on with Sirenity. She isn't pained when I touch her ears and her energy level and personality haven't been effected. I would take her to the vet if she had exhibited any further symptoms, but I am hoping someone has had a similar experience and could shed some light on my situation. She isn't in pain but it must be causing her some discomfort because she stops things she loves like playing with our other dog, playing games with me, and even eating her dinner to itch or shake at some point. Any information you can give me would be much appreciated, she's my little girl I just want to make sure I'm doing everything I can to make sure she is comfortable.
