Q&A

Hi I have a 6lb. yorkie. I just noticed inside both of her ears there are black spots. I'm not sure if she always had them and I never noticed or if this is something new and I need to take her to the vet. Also any advise to get her to stop barking. When it is time for her to eat or go for a walk she keeps barking nonstop. thanks

The black spots are completely normal.


Do the black spots have an odor to them? Do your dog's ears have a distinctive smell? If so, this may be a sign of mites. If your dog seems to be cocking her head to one side and scratching at her ears, she might even have an ear infection. I suggest that you take her to the veterinarian's, just to be on the safe side. If your dog doesn't have any other symptoms but the black spotting, it is probably completely normal. As for the barking, obedience training would be a good start.
