Hello this is Dr. Aaron.

Please let me know when you're available and we can talk about Sam.

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Such frequent shaking suggests a foreign body has entered Sam's ear canal such as a foxtail. Please see image. If so, Sam will need his vet to extract it with an alligator forceps.

May I have an update on Sam, please?
