Default Help with scabby ear flap

Does anybody know what this scabby bit in Wicca's ear could be?

The ear canal is fine, it's only on the inner side of the flap. Under the flash it looks red but when looking at it it's more of a purple/brown colour.

Cheers

Oooo That looks sore .

I have seen that on a dog before, but I can't for the life of me remember what caused it. I'm sure it wasn't anything serious though, just a minor infection or Ear Mites or something.

If I remember, I'll come back and post.

Cheers Jules. It does look awful, but thankfully doesn't seem to be bothering her too much. She's happy to let me lift her ear and touch it. She's not scratching at it. Just not sure what to put on it, so am leaving it be for now.

Hi Carly,

I am not going to be much help I'm afraid, but if it were Chester, then 'I' would clean it, and if the scabs/ear is dry, then I would put some antibacterial cream on it, and if the scabs/ear were wet, then I would put some wound powder on it, then monitor for a few days, if its the same, or worse in a few days, I would go to the vets, if it was getting better, then I would continue...

Cheers. It's dry and feels a bit rough. I put some melaleuca cream on it last night, as it seams to help when I get weird dry patches on my fingers. I'll give it a couple of days and if it doesn't change I'll go see the vet.

Sorry I can’t help hopefully John will come along as he is good with these things but what I do know he would tell you is that if you have concerns then ring your vet. They are best placed to advise

My guess would be ear mites, but it's only a guess. Has he/she been scratching it? Have you had a sniff? Strong smelling is often a yeast infection. Another possibility at this time of year could be grass seed. This can cause big problems and need an anaesthetic to remove.
