I know Cockers are just prone to ear problems, but this poor sweet little furbaby is digging mercilessly at those little ears lately.

I've never had that problem with my dogs...with Samantha and ^Valentine^...and also with Cleo, it was ear infections...not itchy ears.

We haven't had that problem ourselves but I hope the vet is able to help you out so that Jessie gets some relief and can be more comfortable!

I don't know, but I think vets tend to lean towards food allergies when it comes to ear issues, especially infections. Have you thought about getting her allergy tested or maybe trimming her ears up for the summer? My dogs battled ear issues constantly when they were on commercial kibble and I notice one reacts to grain free food containing eggs too.
