Rat Terriers are a hardy breed with relatively few known health problems. There is, however, a possiblity that your dog is suffering some sort of a chemical sensitivity or allergic reaction. you should consult with your veterinarian for a through exam. With proper medication and treatment, your dog should recover quickly.

Take your dog the the Vet to get rid of these problems. Reoccurring ear problems can cause ear damage in your dog.

The first thing you need to do is have your dog's ears thoroughly checked by a vet. He could have a very deep ear infection that has not been detected yet. If you have already tried treating him for an ear infection, you might need a different or stronger antibiotic.
