Why?  Because of How They Work

Excessive Scratching Might Indicate An Ear Infection

Ouch!

Ear infections can be very painful.  Almost all pets are affected by an ear infection at one time or another during their lifetime.  If your pet is robust enough, they will be able to fight off the infection as their immune system asserts itself. 

But if your pet is unhealthy and has a weak or compromised immune system, they may develop chronic ear infections that they will battle their entire life - until a change occurs.
