Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. I am sorry to hear that Mumford has you worried. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help.
Can you look in his ears and tell me if there is any redness, inflammation or abnormal smell?
Has his appetite and stool production been normal since he had that bout of vomiting?
OK . Head shaking is most often due to problems with the ears. This could be infection, something stuck down in the ear or just itchy ears due to some type of allergy.
Both allergies and ear problems are common in this breed.
What I would suggest is getting a good ear cleaner and cleaning both ears. You can also try oral Benadryl at a dose of 1mg per pound of body weight every 12 hours. If he is having some itching in the ears due to an allergy this should help.
In rare cases head shaking can indicate dental pain.
If you have recently changed his food, given new treats or even some human foods this could have caused the vomiting and even itchy ears.
If the head shaking continues I would have your vet take a look at him.
