I have an 8 month old puppy who yelped when I touched her right ear. I looked and it was really gross and I had just cleaned it the day before. There are little chunks and I don’t know if I should take her in. She is fine with me rubbing the outside of her ear and has not made a noise since.
I would take her in. My golden had a horrible ear issue last year that resulted in her outer swelling. I had to take her to the vet so they could pack the inner ear with medicine & that caused her some pain but she got better & the ear swelling went away.
