I posted before that my yellow lab mix was extremely itchy, and now I think she has ear mites. She itches around her ears a lot, and there is some black stuff inside her ears. It is not horrible, but there is a some coffee ground-looking dust stuck to the skin in her ears. Is this ear mites, or is it something else? I am going to take a closer look with a flashlight. If it is ear mites, how do I treat it? We really can't afford to take her to the vet for this right now. I feel horrible that I let this go on for so long, whatever it is. Thank you!
