Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that your pet has a swollen ear and samples revealed bacteria, so she is on oral antibiotics. It sounds as though your pet may have an ear hematoma and an ear infection.
Please send me a picture of the ear so that I can give my final recommendation. I need to see this to know if this is an ear hematoma or something else entirely. There is an icon just above the chat box that you can upload photo's with. You first have to save a photo to your computer.

Expert:  Drhollowayvet replied 10 months ago.

Yes it is actually easier. There should be a button there on your screen at the bottom left I believe to post a picture.

This will only work if you are using the Justanswer app. Or you could simply email the picture to yourself from your phone.
