Davey is 5 yrs old. We have never seen this before and he didn't get much test yesterday . ( neither did I. ) he is twitching both ears and shaking his head. I washed with hydrogen peroxide, then put triple antibiotic ointment before bed. Because we have two other dogs who might lick off the ointment, we brought Davey to bed with us. He woke me up with his paw at 3:00 am as if to say he was sooo uncomfortable please help me mom. At 3:00am I put R7 ear mite treatment inside his ears, got excess out with cotton balls and then applies more triple antibiotic ointment with pain relief on the exterior rim of his ears. He is still shaking his head constantly . I feel bad for him.

Do you also have pictures of the areas he's licking and the sore near his mouth?
