Well today I went to feel Louie's ear and the left one is totally fine, but the right one seems to be swollen but only in the middle of his ear. It's supper strange. We have never had anything like this happen before. Does anyone know what this could possibly be? I think we are in need of a trip to the Vet's office. Has this happened to anyone before?

Thank you guys,
Louie and Hannahpuppy

I'm not sure, but did a quick internet search and found this:

D on't know if it's what ails you, a vet visit is probably the safest move. I've had ear infections before but don't recall any swelling, just itches and head shaking.

Hope you feel better soon! hug

My mom says that you should go to the vet. It sounds like you have a hematoma (blood stuck in your ear). Rimmy had one on his forehead before I came home and the vet had to drain it. He is fine now and all his hair has even grown back on his head. Mom says that one of her dogs had it growing up also and that they did surgery on the ear and besides it not standing up anymore she was fine too.

Thank you guys. It went away smile He seems totally fine now! But we are going to take him for a check up this month and if it comes back we will go in sooner. We are still going to ask what went wrong. It could've easily been a bite! But it's totally fine now! THANK YOU GUYS AGAIN!puppy
