Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
I have a few questions to help me better understand what is going on.
1) how long has the swelling been present?
2) is Happy shaking her head frequently or scratching at her ears more than a couple times a day?
3) any excessive licking of the paws or other itchy skin?
4) Is Happy on monthly flea/tick prevention every month?
5) any history of ear infections or has this problem happened in the past?
6) could you post a high resolution image of the swelling for me?
