Shaking head like he sees things that aren't there


(Independence, mo)

My 7 year old miniature schnauzer keeps shaking his head like he sees something, but nothing is there. Acting afraid, sleeping a lot, scratching at his head, rubs his head on the floor, no signs of ear mites. Any ideas what it could be

Yes, totally agree, an ear infection.

Head Shaking

I think this needs an urgent veterinary visit because an ear infection can lead to a serious vertigo episode that is highly nasty for the dog and takes some time to get better.

ear infection?
by: Linda and Max

Sounds like he may have an ear infection, common with Minis.
Do his ears smell a bit funny?
Get him off to the vet ASAP before it develops any further, if it becomes a full blown infection it can eventually lead to a lot of pain and deafness for the dog.
