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
