Hematoma or something else?
Hi everyone. I'm new here and also new to ear cropping/posting so please bear with me. We recently posted our pup's ears for the first time. When we took them down, some of the tape stuck to his ear. We were able to get it off without much difficulty, but soon after I noticed a little swelling in the inner ear. It's also not standing like it was before this posting (floppy on the top part), seemingly due to the slightly swollen/heavy part of the ear. I massaged it and the swelling definitely went down. It came back a bit later on, but not like it was initially. Earlier, there was also some localized heat in that part of the ear.
I'm looking up hematomas, but not totally sure that's it. Could tape coming off the ear cause damage enough for a hemotoma, or is it just some swelling from the irritation from the tape? I'm afraid to post again with even the small amount of swelling that's still there. Not sure what to do or what it is. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!
