What is the black ant-like bug in my dog's ear?

She's been treated for ear mites four times. She still has a lot of black stuff in her ears. Three days left to go on the medicine.

It's most likely an ear mite, given that your dog has suffered from them before. Continue the medication until its conclusion; if there's still a bug after the drug therapy has concluded, take your dog to see the veterinarian.

Earmites look like tiny black dots. A larger bug is most likely a flea or a tick, both of which are worse then mites. See your vet immediately if different.

It could be ear mites or it could be ticks. I would give the vet a call either way if I were you.
