Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.

As you may well know, Cockers are prone to ear issues. It would be wise to have this area examined and an ear cytology performed to determine if this is yeast or bacteria. Your vet will likely prescribed topical and/or oral meds based on what was found.

We typically don't see this fast of an onset of scabbing if something, such as blueberries, were to cause an allergic reaction. The presence of scabs suggests this is due to something other than something he came in contact with this morning, so I would look for an underlying issue in this case.
