I looked at my dog’s ear today and there is a red bump, slightly larger than a pea, with what look like little scratches on it. This was not there last night, and when I noticed it today it had a good amount of dry blood surrounding it. I gently cleaned it with a Q-Tip, which did not seem to cause her any pain or irritate it more, but just by looking at it you can see it is clearly inflamed.
The attached photo is from while I was cleaning it out, before I had finished. But they give you a good view of what it looks like. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
