inside cat.. 10 yrs old, scratching ears (appear clean inside).

inside cat.. 10 yrs old, scratching ears (appear clean inside). Black hard gunk, just below left eye, hard to remove comes back usually in hours, once in a while smaller amount on right eye. We have toy and miniature Australian shepherds on the basement floor of house. All animals have invisible fencing collars and do not migrate to other floors. Dogs had fleas last fall and previous fall. Treated all animals in case humans tracked fleas to different floors. Cat still scratches constantly and still has gunk. Bathed monthly, front line administered monthly. Any suggestions?

My male Boston Terrier is having yeast ear infections which

My male Boston Terrier is having yeast ear infections which now appear to be in both ears. Vet prescribed drops and allergy diet a few weeks ago. The other ear is now infected with a black substance. I try to clean with benzo peroxide and or dry cotton. The vet ZD diet does not seem to make a difference. He scratches ears and shakes his head and does not seem to feel well. Should I get a second opinion? I am very worried he is only 3 years old. Cheryl

Hello, we have a 4 month old Bichon Frise. Few days ago we went on a hike on the coast in Italy with him. At the end of the walk, he started screaming from pain. We found a vet here who saw a thorn in his ear, removed it, give him a shot of antibiotics and anti pain and prescribed antibiotic pills every 12 hours. He took the pills twice and has been scratching the ear.I just looked in his ear and saw green puss all around it. Should I wait for the pills to kick in, or this could be something else?

My dog is 11 weeks old, and starting this afternoon after our

My dog is 11 weeks old, and starting this afternoon after our walk he started shaking his head. He does this give or take, every ten-fifteen seconds and it does not allow him to get comfortable when resting. When he lays down he only stays in one place for a few seconds before he jumps to another position in jerked movements. I cleaned his ears with OtiCalm but nothing has changed. He has not eaten anything since 7a.m. this morning. He had a good movement a few hours after he ate. It seems as if the problem is not his ears but internal.

My dog has a bubble in the ear tip about the size of a half dollar. It feels soft and like a pocket of air, like a soft baloon. It does not seem painful to my female mid-sized dog. There is no puncture area, like a tick or anything.
