My epicness asked in PetsDogs · 8 years ago

My girl poodle has a big black "ball" in her ear?

Her other ear is perfectly normal and it kind of smells. Can I just take it out? What is it? Is it an infection? Is it just built up wax? Please help!

    Sounds like a clogged wax pore. A cat of mine had something similar and you just have to keep their ears clean of wax, and some cats and dogs are more prone than others. They might have allergies or hair that helps keep dirt and wax in place. Take her to your groomer and see if they would know how to help, if not then a vet.
