Purple-y swollen ear tips?

5834 Views 15 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  jatango
I think I may have been taping wonder's ear tips just a little too tight. The tips seem thickened and are a bit on the purple side. Should I just tape everything but the tips, or leave the ears down for a bit? Is it okay if they flop at this age? They don't have sores or anything, they just seem thick and look tender and a little bruised. :(

My opionion is that you should go to the vet and get a professional opionion. It is hard for us to say by looking at the pics and better to be safe than sorry. If there is an issue with the ears and you catch it early enough you will have an easier time to correct it than if you wait. Anytime something is a color that it should not be indicates a warning to check it out. Please let us know what the vet says.
Just wanted to check in and see how your pups ears are doing?
Glad to hear that they are getting better.
