Bo, my male dog german shepherd, have itching and scratching, loss of hair, and scratches in the ears
I'm sorry to hear about Bo, I have seen how miserable they can be with skin issues. German Shepherds unfortunately are a breed prone to skin issues so if this is the case he will definitely need to see a vet for treatment and/or diagnostic testing. If it is just one spot them it may just be a case of moist pyoderma or a 'hot spot'. Whilst very sore and itchy to the patient, it is quite treatable. he may well need a course or antibiotics and probably some pain relief so I would get him to a vet soon to make him more comfortable. Good luck.

Flo, my female dog westie, have scratches in the ears, cough, and itching and scratching
Good morning! First of all, I don't know if Flo has been dewormed and deloused correctly. Vomiting and diarrhea in a rescue dog might be caused by this problem and may not have anything to do with the food. On the other hand, even if you don't see fleas, she might have had an alergic reaction caused by previous food. I can only recommend you to go to your vet again or to a different one if you need a second opinion. She needs some more tests like X-ray and blood tests to rule out any other disease caused by a virus or a foreign object. Good luck! I hope Flo gets better soon :) Best

Hello! For the first deep cleaning of your dog's ears, it is advisable to go to the veterinarian as he/she has appropriate tools for deeper cleaning. Also, he/she can recommend you an ear-cleaning product and guidelines so you can apply it at home. What is most important is to find a ear-cleaning product that doesn't contain antibiotics, alcohol, steroids or any toxic material. Don't use cotton swabs, and don't put your fingers too deep in your dog's ear. Once you have an ear-cleaning product, use a big cotton ball or wrap your finger in sterile gauze. You can only clean his outer ear flap and a part that is easily reachable for your fingers. Your dog will notify you (by moving his head), once you start cleaning the inner part, when it is too deep. Use very sensitive movements while holding gently your dog's head. Be careful not to get too deep, as you can damage your dog's ear. You should clean your dog's ears once per week in order yo avoid risks of ear infections (otitis). All the best for you and Sam.
