We have a schnauzer. He seems to have a problem with his ear, and I haven't been able to find anything about it anywhere. (Vet is closed right now, and I really want to know if this is serious or not!!) The thing is his one ear is all puffed up like it is inflatable, like someone pumped it full of air, or something. I have no clue what is wrong with it, it looks funny, and I have a feeling this will cost me lots of dough.... Does anyone know what this is? Thanks in advance!
(I have to leave for a ball game, will check back later if I need to clarify or explain anything further.)
Took the dog to a vet. Turns out it was a hematoma (I thought that was a bruise, for some reason!) The vet said that for whatever reason, he scratched and dug at his ear so much that he made a blood vessel burst and separate the skin from the cartilage in his ear. He drained the ear, we continued checking it, and draining it as needed at home. No surgery required, thank heavens!! Thanks ladies!Answer Question

It sounds like a Hematoma. I'd just leave it alone until you can get into the vet.
