I recently took Cassius to the vet and he says that this is normal and that it is caused by flapping his floppy ears very hard and that they should eventually harden and stop bleeding. Cassius has had this since he was about 6 months old. At that age he started developing these hard scabs on the tips of both ears. At first I just ignored them, but then the scabs got bigger and harder and would bleed from time to time. I figured they were just small cuts and that they would heal but after the blood clotted and they scabbed up, they would bleed again another day. They seem to be in this same endless cycle forever. Does anyone with a floppy earred dog have this problem?
