Dear Nancy,

Dogs do not have sweat glands there. Your dog may be developing hot spots. If your dog has a fever the ear tips and nose will be hotter than normal. It would be helpful to have your veterinarian check your dog to determine the cause of the internal heat.

Please let us know what you find out and we can help you with some options for holistic supportive care.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
