You must take your dog to the vet. There is no way you can know whether it's an ear infection, mites or some foreign body in the ear and it is VERY PAINFUL whatever it is. It is most likely that he will need antibiotic treatment and the sooner you do it the better, it is only going to get worse and you may end up with a deaf dog or worse, if it is an infection it could spread to other parts of the body via the blood. If I were you I would not mess around trying to find a cheaper and maybe unsound cure for the problem. Don't delay your dogs treatment. Unfortunately if you own a dog then veterinary costs are part and parcel of the package. I also own a Rott and they are the most trusting and loving dogs. Your dog is relying on you to provide him with proper treatment. Please do it. I consider that this would be top priority for my dog above and beyond any other monetary costs.
