Both of our Chesapeake Bay Retrievers have sores on the same

Customer Question

Both of our Chesapeake Bay Retrievers have sores on the same spot on both of their ears. This has gone on for a couple of weeks.

I have added pictures of their ears. It's funny because they are on the exact same spot on both of their ears. We originally thought the puppy was tugging on them but they have been separated for a couple of weeks and these are getting worse.

Thank you for the photos! Fly strike should be considered when two dogs have those lesions on their pinnae (ear flaps). Do you live where biting flies are likely?
