    Bleeding ears on GSP

    Noticed our GSP X has for crusty tips on her ears that are looking raw. Thought it was from a run in with a bad tempered foxy last week but doesn’t seem to be getting better so thinking it might be something else. Doesn’t help that she helicopter ears and whacks them around a fair bit! Prob do a run to the vet tomorrow but anyone else had this?

    maybe flystrike,seen that before on short haired dog,raw and bloody round the edges of his ears.
    disinfectant and some cream from the vet eventually cleared it up

    As above fly bites, no uncommon some dogs are more susceptible than others.

    Grass seed or object in the actual ear more than likely

    Biting flies used to give one of my dogs hell.
    Running through blackberry or bush lawyer gave the edges of his ears a hiding too.

    Does she drag the tips of her ears on the ground. I had a wiemerana x black lab that did , also the tip of her nose ......specially if there were rabbits about. And the ear flapping thing , bests me how that didnt hurt, ha could always tell where she was .
    Vegetarians Bah !! . If god didn't want us to eat animals he wouldn't have made them out of meat ! .

    Yes, but mites cause them to continually shake their heads which flaps their ears. And then wounds on ears take forever to heal.

    Do the ears smell?
    ie the inside? If yes then an inner ear infection or mites grass seeds....you would notice grass seeds as they are usually very painful for the dog.
    Tips of ears sounds more likely to be from external damage. Blackberry bush lawyer etc.
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    Perhaps time for a Vet to have a wee look and confirm its nothing nasty

    thanks for all the suggestions, vets assessment was it was likely a reaction to sandflys or mozzies from a recent trip over xmas up Nelson way with some blackberry rips for good measure. Course of antibiotics and lidocaine ointment to help them heal and instructions to keep her pretty calm for the next week or two. Risk is because they are at the end of the capillary system healing can be slow and worst case they might have to trim back the cartilage and stitch the skin back together. Doesn't seem to bother her but but good to know. Sounds like I might need to deet up her ears when in sandfly county next.

    Wandering Jew is a cunt. My dog suffers majorly from any contact with it and unfortunately it is everywhere near Hokitika riverbed and tailings.
    Can't take him for a run anywhere local and no matter how careful you try to be you either forget or he gets into it somewhere random. Vets fucking love him coz he pays for their holidays.
