My dog had this so I came here to learn more about it. She didn't appear to be in any pain if not touched. I knew there was no way I could afford the surgery and planned to order the oil (forgot the name of it), but then a week later her ear had gradually gone back down to its original size.

My lab cross had 2 aural haematomas the first one occured in April 2008. It was quite large the size of a fat sausage and we were concerned but the more research I did on the internet the more I discovered that the haematomas bother the owner more than the pet and if there is no obvious discomfort just leave it. Early May my dog got a second haematoma closer to her ear canal. I became worried and did more research and tried leeches...yes leeches ordered 8 of them from Niagra Ontario. It wasn't as bad as I had imagined but really wasn't the right treatment as although it caused no harm to my dog it would not and could not resolve the problem as the balloons of blood were not isolated but part of her regular flowing system so as you removed the blood more filled it's place and the leeches really only remove about a tsp each. It is now mid August 2008 and I am happy to report that my dogs ear looks as good as the day before she had the problem. There has been no cauliflowering or mishealing and she is happy not to have had surgery and face further complications that stictches etc. can provide. If she had another one I would leave it to heal again I think sometimes its best not to try and treat everything. Too quickly someone wants to take your money for an unnecessarry procedure. My dogs ear was very swollen and without any surgery is perfectly fine today. That was my experience.
