Found my dogs left...

Found my dogs left ear bleeding this morning. Cannot see any scratches or injury. doesn't look like it is openly bleeding, just he shakes his head and blood goes flying

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

He is a 15 year old sheltie, has just completed a two week round of antibiotics for a UTI
