Dog ate chocolate?

ask a vet

Swelling on ear.

Species: Dog
Breed: Beagle
Age: 2-5 years
My 2 year old male beagle has a bump on his outer ear flap which resembles the post on this website from 2/9/11. Is this something that will most likely go away or should I be concerned and make a vet appointment? It doesn't seem to bother him, even when I touch it he doesn't seem to mind. It is skin colored and about the size of an eraser tip. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time.

I'm wondering if what you are describing is an aural hematoma?

I've written an article about these which you can read here:
