berk ear has pool of blood at tip

Post by porcine » Mon Sep 12, 2022 9:00 am

I need some advice, I have a 9 week pig with a blood pocket near the tip of the ear, I placed a large gauge needle into the blood pocket to drain it. I squeezed most of the blood that had pooled in that area. This morning it refilled back up. Should I lance the pocket or just let it reabsorb over time. I just don't want it to get so big that. This berk will be a shown in a few months. Thanks for any advice.
