Hi there my boy showed up with a dark stain inside the ear which seems to be growing in size. It doesn't hurt nor itch but when you touch it you feel the surface is a bit rougher than the other parts of the year which are normal. Ozzy lives unleashed and we have forests and wide open fields around where he runs and hunts like crazy, although he never catches anything :-) Any views on what could it be? Thank you!
Well, raising hand here. Arwen had the same. I could soak her ears with ear cleaner or mild vinegar and get some of it out. My vet said can be allergy related or yeast/fungus. Her inner ears not goo or red, just the ear skin turning black. It didn't seem to bother her at all but drove me nuts. I had someone tell me it is "leather ear" but they start losing hair with that, and she did not lose hair. She had this probably the last 3 yrs of her life.
Since she had autoimmune problems and on steroids, I did wonder if that was related.
The area surrounding it looks clear and appears to be normal so again, my opinion is that it's pigmentation of the skin causing "freckles"…Oakleys skin started off white as a pup and
At five every time I turn around he has spots on the skin under his coat..I joke and call him "half Dalmatian"
