Poodle ear problem

My Poodle has one ear that has a dark brown discharge. If you rub the ear it sounds like it has a lot of liquid in it.  He shakes his head and walks with that side of his head tipped towards the floor.  Some times if you just touch the ear flap he cries.  I have tried cleaning it out with homeopathic remedies and a product called Gent-L-Clenz, which is a drying ear cleanser.  I put these remedies on a cotton ball and wipe the ear out and get it clean and 24 hours later it is a mess again. This has been going on for at least 2 months The other ear is fine.  Could it be ear mites?  If not, what can I do to clear this up.  Please help me, he is so uncomfortable.

He needs to go to the vet.  He sounds like he has a yeast infection in his ear (very common with poodles)....It has gone on way too long....get him there asap.

Ear Mites almost always effect BOTH ears...The discharge is usually a darker black and looks like coffee grounds. Suzi-q is correct. Brown is an abundance of ear wax or probably Yeast. However, the head tilt means that it is now an Inner Ear Infection and harder to treat. ORAL antibiotics are a MUST, now. If left untreated, next will be a loss of equilibrium and he will start spinning in circles. It's like Vertigo in humans; they don't know up or down! He also is at risk of losing his hearing or rupturing the ear drum. All of this is extremely painful. He will need painkillers for a few days...Be sure and ask the Vet for these, too. I'm surprised that he is NOT screaming, yet. Please, get him to your Vet tomorrow. He is suffering....Let us know how it turns out....Good luck!   Karla

My Maltese has gotten this a couple of times. You see this more in dogs with the droppy, silky ears. The ear stays too moist. I took him to the vet. It was an ear infection. They gave me a liquid medicine to put in his ear. It's a little messy but should do the trick. Just try to keep the dog as clean as possible too.
