hi everyone. recently, i noticed this red spot in my dogs ear and i'm not sure if it means that its an infection or what.. i don't ever see him scratching his ear, there is no odor, i even touch the spot and he doesn't mind, nor have i seen him shake his head. what could be the problem? should i take him to a vet? and if there's a home remedy for this please share it with me! thanks!

Ear

I would clean his ear and put a little vitamin E oil on it which will help it heal and also soothe it if there is any irritation. It does not look serious to me, but I would keep a close eye on it and take him to the vet if the condition worsens

It's too early to tell, but to me, it looks like a normal irritation caused by scratching. I suggest you let your vet see this so he can give you the right diagnosis.

How do you wash your dog's ear? What ear cleaning solution do you use?
