We weren’t sure what was going on, but every time the air conditioning unit turned on, the dog would cry.
He was still a puppy, and I thought it could be the noise coming from the air conditioning that was annoying him.
My husband thought he may have an ear infection, or ear mites. I knew nothing about ear mites, but I knew what an ear infection felt like. I had some medicine I used when I got ear infections. After heating it up a bit, I dropped two small drops into each ear. I was sure he should be feeling better the next day, but when the air conditioning unit turned on, he was crying again. We were getting to a point where we either had to take him to the vet and find out why the air conditioner affected him so badly, or get rid of the air conditioning. It was summer, and the latter was not a choice. There was no way I was going to go through a summer without air conditioning because of the dog. I would give him to my niece for her birthday, or find another good home for him. The only problem with these choices was that he would probably behave the same way when their air conditioning turned on. We opted to take him to the vet and find out why he was crying. The vet found nothing wrong and said some dogs howled when they heard high pitched noises, but since our puppy was still young, it may be his way of trying to howl.
