    Default What is this?? (Ear sores)

    Bella has been scratching around her ear recently. I thought she needed a bath, so I gave her one. Then I noticed there was a red blotchy spot near her ear--right outside the ear. I started spraying Vetericyn on the spot. She still scratched.

    Now, the red blotch turned into a sore, and I see blood IN her ear. What's going on?? I thought it was wax, but I think it's blood. I just wiped with a Mal wipe.

    FYI - I clean her ears daily with witch hazel.

    Thinking... I suppose it's possible she scratched the skin blotch and cut the inside and outside of her ear.

    Her other ear is fine.

    Whew! A scratch makes me less panicky. Any thoughts on what I should put on the sores for healing. She absolutely will not stop scratching, so she's wearing the cone of shame.

    Hi Cali, the sores are caused by Bella scratching her ears, I'm going through this with Dozer right now because of his allergies and yeasty ears. I've been cleaning the outer parts of his ears everyday with a unscented sensitive baby wipe, and once a week with a ear cleaner. Itchy ears can be caused by allergic reactions, yeast infections, or ear mites. I would clean his ears, and put some polysporin ointment on his sores, and keep an eye on them. If they don't clear up in a week or two, then I would take her to the vet to have him check her ears and make sure she doesn't have a bacterial ear infection, in which case she would need prescription antibiotic ears drops. I hope her ears clear up soon and she feels better soon.

    Thank you! I wish there was something I could put on her paws so she can't hurt herself.

    you could try little baby socks, we've done that with Buster before. I was going to say that the vetrycin should heal it up, might take a little time though.

    Yeah, but the problem is she would chew on the socks when I'm not around. She'd probably swallow them, creating a bigger problem.

    Would neosporin be the same as polysporin?

    Have you tried soaking her paws in Epsom Salts and warm water or Apple Cider Vinegar and warm water? Stand her in the tub, and take a container or a small basin and put equal amounts of Epsom salts or vinegar and water and have her stand in it for around 10 mins or as long as she will.

    I have not, but I will do that. I have the Epsom salt and the basin. So, you think that'll stop her from scratching and licking her paws (which she does a lot, too).
