Lumps on dogs ear.

A couple little bumps came up on the tip of my dogs ear flap. They have grown a little and are flaky. They're kinda like a callus like dead skin. Now I notice he has them on both ears. They are only on the tips.

I was going to say it's probably a wart, but I'd definitely have that looked at. I've never seen anything like that.

I wonder if it's an allergic reaction to his flea/heartworm meds. Thank you

You know what that looks like to me? The scaly callus spots that dogs get on their elbows. In which case, I've heard that bag balm helps. And there are other methods that I've heard of to stop the progression of those calluses.

But the fact your dog has them on both ears - I would have them looked at and discuss with your vet. They probably are harmless, but if I were you - I'd like to know what they are and what caused them.

***

And I thought of another thing! I've seen those in horse ears before. It's basically dry skin and buildup caused by crud in the ears and sometimes from flies biting (which I'm sure isn't the case with your dog) . I'd still get this checked out. Good luck!

The vet said it was from biting flies ( noseeums) biting his ears. Then it got infected and grew huge scabs. They put him under and cut them off. He gave me antibiotics and repellent to spray on his ears.

They sell a flea tick fly repellant. He said one time he had to remove half of a horses ear cause it was so bad. Thanks for asking. I am praying now cause I had his anal glands drained. He said he saw a growth in his rectum. . I have to go back in 3 months.
