Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

The best natural techniques for healing a hematoma is to drain them daily with a small syringe and then wrap the ear with a banadge so it cannot fill up again. It will continue to fill up with serum but adhesions will begin to form to hold the 2 pieces of cartilage together. This will take time with this method but it will work. Leeches do nto work because this is not blood but serum that accumulates in this area.

I am not aware of any natural vets in your area but there are resources through your CT vet association to help.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
