Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
It sounds like your dogs may have ear mites. The goop and rubbing is a sign of this. You should take them to the vet for diagnosis and treatment.
Here is some info on ear mites:
Hope this helps!
Most cockers have serious ear problem at some point in their life. This is common with any floppy eared breed.
The only problem with this is that ear infections can be either bacterial or fungal in nature. There is a different treatment for each and you have to know which you are treating because you can do more damage to the ear if you put the wrong substance in it.
I hate to say it but you do need to see the vet to find out what you are dealing with. The vet will culture the ear and can tell you what the problem is. Then you can get an appropriate medication. The appropriate med might even be an inexpensive ear cleaner that you can get at the pet store.
Does this help more?
Let me know if you still have specific questions. I would be happy to answer them.
I'm sorry that you are disappointed with my answer but some problems need Vet assistance in order to be treated. If it is ear mites then you have to get them to the vet for treatment, there isn't a home treatment for this. Also, ear mites is a possiblity, without seeing a vet there is no definite way to know what the problem is. If you feel that my answer is not helpful then you don't have to accept it. I'm sorry that I couldn't offer you a home remedy.
Until you get some finance to take the dog to the vet,you can try q-tip without some alcohol on them but clean the ear gently.Then on a cotten ball try some hydrogen peroxide.Also your dog as the other experts say might have earmitesYou can go to a pet store and buy ear mite medicine.This what I use on my lhaso apso,but please be sure to get to the vet if these temporary solutions dont workIf the dog is scratching her ear alot then its ear mites,but taking the dog to the vet is the best thing to doIf you tell the vet to just check her ears,he may not charge for the full exam,ask him firstAlso some vets have payment plans.The meds he prescribes you probably can get from petmeds or other online websites for meds,as the vets will charge more for the meds.Let him give you a script for the meds ,or simply tell him you will have the online company call him for the script which is what pet meds and mostly all on line places do.good luck,hope this helps a little.
