Chihuahua terrier mix short hair and she weighs 16ils

Hot ears usually indicate inflammation or fever.

Sometimes the ear flaps swell if she runs into something. You can see it if her hair is short. But with long hair you have to feel it.

Just to be sure gently run her ears between your fingers and see if you feel any swelling.
