  • Oh my goodness. I have no idea what that could be, but if it's a lot of blood take your dog to the vet NOW! If it's just a very small amount of blood, like you can see a sore and it's turning into a scab, then that's all it is. I hope you get your baby fixed up!

  • It could have scratched itself and made a cut, or it could have ear mites. Try and see if the bleeding was caused by the dog scratching itself, or of there is no cut and the blood is coming from deep in the ear the dog may have been bopped up side the head and popped it's eardrum. If the dog seems to be in pain, take it to a vet, or call the vest first and ask some free advice over the phone.

  • ive been a vet tech for 15 yrs now.....dogs tend to have yeast or bacterial infections in the ears more than ear mites...but mites are another possability. but yeah any ear infection or mite infestation can cause itching and on occation bleeding...especially if they are so itchy the dog is scratching them to death. you need some good ear flush and probably mometamax for an ear infection. good luck
