Well... gave Dre a little scratch behind the ear and it made it itch like crazy... kinda how ear mites are described... when they get disturbed they make the ear itch even more... he shook his head pretty good and this came flying out onto my bed... looks like wet coffee grounds

its no big deal, its easy to take care of, a feed supply place sells the med. under $10. just clean it out pretty good first. take your time with him, because i believe now he might not like what your gonna do, but hey, he's your baby treat him as such.

good luck

oh yea, thanks for coming up here and posting that, after i was crucified for even suggesting mites.
you didnt have to do that. so thanks

i was starting to lean towards it being an infection because he doesnt cuddle with any dog other than Daisy and it isnt all that much really and zero cats.. but coffee ground looking stuff in the ear is related to mites so i'm leaning back that way... cheaper to treat and if its not mites, then i'm only out a few bucks

lol.. i was under the impression it was mites all along..

i looked up ear yeast infection, ear infection and ear mites.. all the signs point to the mites

no funky odor
really gets itchy when messed with
chunky black/brown/red junk in ear

time to make a run to the Feed store and pickup and ear wash and some mite medis.. its usually way cheaper than the pet stores

Its not mites. Y'all have just never seen enough ear infections to know what they can look like. But go ahead n spend money on mite medicine and when you're still having the problem a month from now then maybe you'll reconsider. Make sure you get mite meds with ivermectin and repeat two weeks apart just to be sure

oh down with disco is hanging on gamely isnt she?
if your gonna have game dogs you better be game yourself then.

but whatever it is , i think your going about it the right way, if you dont use all the med up if you do run across ear mites you already have the med on hand.

hang in there dwd, somebody will come up with an ear infection

tell us this then, what do you think could've gave her dog an ear infection?
when she reads your answer she'll know then its mites

exactly! Why put potentially unnecessary medicine into your dog. Vets are like Doctors in that way sometimes and need you to spend send spend when there could be an easy solution that doesn't possibly poison your dog in the process. Steroids and antibiotics are the answer 100% of the time when a simple cleaning solution might take care of the problem and wont harm the dog to try out first to see if they are actually needing stronger meds. I am all for medicating when necessary and going to a vet, but not as a first resort when its not an emergency.

I'm just saying my dog had a yeast infection in his ear. It didnt stink at all and it was full of black yucky junk. It was most definitely not mites. Now I'm not saying anybody is wrong or right and I have NO loyalties to anybody about the subject...I'm just saying

Good thinking. But cephalexin will not clear up a yeast infection you need an antifungal a good flush is probably your best bet no matter the diagnosis.
