Hi,

It is an ear infection, and possibly yeast infection, and also possibly ear mites. It is best to see the vet for this type of infection. It will not take a lot of tests to find out what is wrong.

It is likely that if you try to clean your pets ears, yourself, you could get bitten, since an ear infection is very painful. Additionally, the meds that a vet will give you work better and faster than any home remedy.

Sometimes, after this clears up, you might find success in offering your dog grain-free food and often giving your pet boiled chicken.

Blessings,

Robyn

It sounds like a yeast infection. The vet will give you antibiotic drops and you should clean the ears twice daily.

it is most likely an ear infection. Dark buildup, itching, moving his head back and forth, are all symptoms of this.

When my little guy had this, it was a fungal infection. The vet gave him drops and then we had to repeat daily for 2 weeks. It helped. He hated it.

Check with the vet and have them take a look see. Post back what you learn!! Healing prayers for your fur baby!!

Sounds like an ear infection. You will need to see a Vet to know if you are dealing with mites, yeast, fungus or bacteria. It usually requires a couple of weeks of ear drops. Do not wait to treat your dog. This is very painful for him. It will get worse and can result in deafness.
