Swollen Ear

3 posts in this topic

My 12 year old lab has swelling in his ear. It's the size of a pizza roll. 1" X 1" x 1". the swelling is like it is in a compartment. The ear is flat and then the swollen part sticks out. He shows no signs of a bug bite and it doesn't seem to bother him one bit.Could it be a broken blood vessel that caused the swelling,but it's not hot to the touch. Anyone have any ideas Thanks DrJ.

My 11 - 12 year old just had this. It is a Hematoma (sp)

You can bring him in and have it drained, they will want to do surgery to fix the blood vessel. I waited too long and when they tried to drain it the blood had coagulated (sp)

He still has a little bump but it is going down.

Good Luck,

i agree, the more your dog shakes it's head, the more likely they are to develope a hemetoma. we have to clean one of my lab's ears every other day to avoid this prob.

    • While the memes and banter is entertaining, at some point the rubbers gotta meet the road and the party in charge right now has to show they have the maturity and the vision to lead the country.  So, at this point and into the future I ask the resident Republicans to show me why they were the right choice and to demonstrate the way they would expect everyone else to behave by doing so themselves.
