White patch outside ear..
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Everyone, i have noticed a white patch on my pups outer ear.

I have felt it and it seems rather hard and crusty, however i'm not 100% sure what it is. I am thinking its a dry dandruff sort of thing.

Has anyone experienced this? If so what is it and how do i treat it.

I will be going to the vet but they are closed due to public holidays here in Sydney.

I have also attached a photo.

Doesn't sound like an emergency so just get to the vet when you can. Could be a bunch of things. If it looks like a wound then I just Neosporin and keep an eye on it. But there are also skin infections and things like ringworm that are above the neosporin :)

Can he still get ringworm even though he is on worm tablets? Intraspectrum plus.

Ringworm is not actually a worm. It's a fungus. So yes. There are not preventatives for it.

Thanks I think I'll have to go get it checked out by my vet to be safe. It may not be an emergency but if it's ringworm I don't want it to spread anywhere or to anyone.

I'll let you guys know.

What exactly does the Neosporin do?:)
