    Default Cyst on her ear?

    Picked up Holly from a new kennel on Sunday and noticed a spot on her ear. Is it a cyst?

    Holly eats Fromms Beef Frittata and she gets plain Greek yogurt from time to time. The only change to her diet recently is some pineapple that we gave her a few times last week and we also got her Fromms Parmesan Cheese treats as well recently.

    The only other change that I can think of is the new kennel gave her a bath with oatmeal shampoo. Please let me know any thoughts or concerns.

    Haven't heard of Cysts on the ears but I would imagine that it is possible. It could also be a bug bit of some sorts.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I wouldn't let them use an oatmeal base shampoo In the future because it is a grain shampoo but I don't think that's where the spot came from. Looks like a bug bite or if he was around other dogs maybe from playing. I would use some antibiotic ointment on it.

    It looks hot to the touch, is it? I was wondering too if there's other spots, only because it does look like alergy related. (hotspots) like the begining of something check the pits and between toes and belly and on top of the tail. keep me posted please, a mention or tag will get my attention

    It looks like a pimple to me, just clean it and watch it for a few days. Hope it get better.

    @Sherry It's dry, not hot to the touch and part of it feels so hard it's almost crusty! She will let me touch it but she'll eventually move her head as if it's bothering her when I do touch it. I cleaned it last night with a Douxo pad and I think that clearly irritated/stung her. She rubbed her ear on the floor afterwards.

    About an hour after she ate tonight, Holly threw up her dinner . Going to take her to the vet tomorrow and see what they have to say.

    The vet said the spot in the pics above is an ulcer that's on the outside. They recommended treating with neosporen. This just sounds weird but I have no knowledge to disagree...

    She also has an ear infection and they gave us Simplicef 100 mg and EasOtic 10 ml (it's in a spray bottle) to treat that. Her ears look clear to us and she hasn't had an ear infection since we switched to grain free food.

    Vet also gave us Atarax 50mg "as needed for scratching".

    Holly puked her dinner again Friday night. We mixed some pepto in yogurt afterwards to try and settle her tummy. She is acting normal and we called the vet Saturday morning and they think she is just a little stressed.

    Please let me know if anything sticks out to you. I feel so bad for her

    Do you think the medicine could contribute the upset belly?

    Yes but she puked last Wednesday (before the meds) and this is not normal. Only happened once tho so we'll see how she does over the next few days.

    Hollys bobo on her ear is bleeding all over the place tonight. She also has a cherry eye tonight and she hasn't had one of those since we switched to grain free food. That was atleast 6 months ago. There's two recommended bully vets close to us so I'm thinking of going to see one of them instead of our regular vet.

    Please let me know any thoughts or concerns. Does anyone think this is food related? She's on Fromms Beef Frittata, maybe she doesn't like the beef. Her poops are great and gas is better than it's ever been. Also, her bobo is hard as a rock...and bleeding......
