Help hog doc

Help hog doc
My 5 week old piglet has an infected ear. It is swollen like a balloon.
I cannot see any cuts or scrapes on it.
Should I try to lance the ear?
Any advice is appreciated

What you are describing sounds like a hematoma. As a general rule we don’t treat them and they resolve on their own.
Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
