To check for ear mites in your dog, look deep inside the ear and see if you see any waxy build up or dirty ear. If you do, your dog may have ear mites. The mites are actually too small for the human eye to see but you can see the evidence they leave behind as their population grows inside your dog's ear. Since ear mites eat earwax and skin oil and then defecate, there will be a build up of dark dirty looking material.

After a few bouts of this and realizing that the plain hamburger and rice that I would cook and feed to them to help them recover after one of these stomach-emptying events was staying down just fine, I modified the hamburger and rice to be more nutritionally complete and that has been their diet for the last three years.
