    I've just checked my 11 month old Mini-Labradoodle's ears. One looks fine and pink and healthy, the other looks slightly red. He hasn't been scratching it so I assume it's not itchy.

    Any ideas on what it could be? He's been treated for worms and fleas/ticks.
    Thank you :confused:

    Could be the beginning of an ear infection. I should keep an eye on him and if you notice him scratching his ear or shaking his head, or if it starts to smell, or if you begin to notice brown bits (a bit like coffee grounds) and lots of wax, I should take him to the vet.
