Customer Question
Hi there. My...

Hi there. My dog has had recurrent ear infections for years, usually worse after he swims. But this time, there is quite a bit of blood coming out of the ear.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infections your dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?

Bear - he's a 10 yr old black labrador retriever

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Bear

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bear?

I don't think so

How long has he been showing these signs?

Has he been scratching the ear prior to the bleeding?

How much blood are you seeing (spoonful, cupful, etc)?

Is it quite red, swollen or inflamed?
