Hi,

i recently rescued a boxer from a shelter and about 2 weeks ago I notice that both ears have like a red sore in the inside of them. He also scratches them very hard to the point he cry’s. It’s not in the ear lob but on the inside of the floppy part.

Does anyone have any idea what it could be and what i can do to fix it?

Could well be an infection. I would take him in to the vet and have them take a look. They can give you ear wash and topical antibiotic to clear it up if necessary (very inexpensive). Good luck

Sounds like an ear infection, it really needs treatment from a vet. Pearl had ear issues in January and it took two rounds of Ketoconazole to clear it competely, she had a yeast infection and would shake her head so much that the tip of one ear would bleed. Adopting a dog is a kind thing to do but remember to budget for unexpected medical expenses.
