Hi all: Emmie is my epileptic chi. Takes phenobarbital and potassium bromide. Well controlled. My question is: sometimes when she comes up in my lap, I notice her inside of her ears are really red and hot. She is not bothered at all. In a short time they are normal. She does not shake, or tilt her head, or scratch her ears. This seems like a hot flash!!! In a few minutes it is gone. There is no odor, or gunk. Any ideas?
