My EB puppy is scratching his ears till they bleed. Went to vet , he gave me some drops to use. Still does'nt seem to help. I bought a halo for him, it keeps his feet away from it. He still shakes his head, so I know it is still bothering him. Any advice would be appreciated.

Did the vet do an ear swab to check for mites, yeast, or bacteria? If not, I suggest taking your pup back & having it done. Unfortunately, there is no "kill all" ear medication that will do away with all 3 so it's very important to know what's causing the itching. One thing to worry about with your dog's constant scratching is infection & a possible risk of hematoma (where he ruptures the blood vessels in the ear & the ear flap fills up with blood). Call your vet & ask them if they specifically swabbed to check for mites & if they did a stain for yeast & bacteria.
