Hi! So my baby boy shepherd will be 1 next month and I had to take him to the vet for the 1st time. He had this lump/bump (broken blood vessel) on his ear that would bleed and he is missing the hair on the tips of his ears. The flesh is starting to deteriorate as well one his one ear. Turns out he has an auto immune disease called Ear Margin Seborrhea/necrosis. Everytime I try to look this up, I can not understand it for the life of me. If anyone knows anything about this condition please let me know, thank you!!

Has he had a full thyroid panel done? I've seen this in three dogs, all had their thyroid function tested and were found to be hypothyroid, and all had totally normal ears after several months on thyroid medication (levothyroxine).
