Fluid filled lumps on ear.

Species: Dog
Breed: Boxer mix
Age: 2-5 years
My dog has many lumps on her ears that feel like they are fluid filled and sensitive to touch




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

If you are noticing fluid filled lumps on the ears, these may be something called an aural hematoma.

In any case, they should be looked at by a vet.
