    Black spots on skin inside ear

    Hi my 4 year miniature schnauzer recently developed some black spots on the inside of his ears. At first I thought it was just dirt and tried washing them off to no avail. They seem to have appeared after he had some blister in his ears. He's been to the vet about a month or 2 ago and had an ear cleaning and hair pulled out, and the spots appeared after all of this. I'm worried it could be some kind of skin cancer. He has always been really sensitive to his ears and constantly shakes his head, especially when getting up from laying down. Any ideas?

    I would take him back to the vet, and mention the head shaking. A little head shaking is normal. A lot is indicative of some sort of infection.

    I have never seen anything quite like that before. Ear mites were my first thought, or a yeast infection....but in both cases, you would see something that looks more like black dirt specks. If you smell the ears, do you smell anything out of the ordinary? Often an infected ear will have a smell.

    Either way, I would take him back to the vet to double check.
