Hello, my name is***** and I will help you.

Can you get someone to hold her so you can get a good look in her ears?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 year ago.

If this is impossible and she keeps shaking her head you might think about taking her to your vet or an emergency clinic. She could then be sedated and the vet could have a good look. It could be a seed awn, other plant material or a bug. The object could then be removed.

Another possibility is that she is having an allergic reaction with needs to be addressed.
