Itchy ears?

Lately, my two ferrets seem to be scratching at their ears more than normal. I cleaned them today and it was the same old dark brown color, but it still has me worried. They squirmed and kicked while I cleaned, which is unusual in itself since they used to just sit there and endure patiently.

I know that mites make the wax black, but could something else be bothering my fuzzies?

It's probably mites, but if you want to know for sure you could give a sample of it to your vet to be checked.

yeah, its probably ear mites, my ferrets had them when I first got them. Its pretty easy to treat, just make sure you wash down EVERYTHING after they get treated.
