She is scratching her ears constantly and her ears are red and very sore. She is an 8 year old Havanese. Thank you for any advice.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?

Coco

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

She has moved around quite a bit since I travel...Since I came back from India, she has not been doing well.

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. It sounds like she has an ear infection. I would recommend taking her to the vet to have them check her out and prescribe topical ear medication to clear up the infection. In the meantime, you can give her some Benadryl (1 mg/lb) every 12 hours to help decrease the inflammation in the ears and help give her some relief.
