The mouth looks like inflammation from a food allergy and the the ear is a hemotoma. Its usually caused by excessive ear flapping. They are very hard to heal and usually require to be lanced and drained by a vet. Does Roxie have ear gunk issues? I can see the end of the ear is thick with a pocket of fluid that looks like it burst through. What I would do is clean thoroughly with Betadine Solution and apply pressure to remove as much fluid as possible. If her ears are an issue I would be cleaning them daily to help stop her from flapping. She might need a round of antibiotics if there is an infection.

Yes I would say thats allergy related especially the hematoma. Gouda used to get those and they take awhile to heal. My Vet preferred not to lance them because of the risk of infection but each Vet is different I suppose. I never had any of Gouda lanced. In the mean time make sure to keep it clean and if you have any coconut oil rub some on it at least 2x daily.

What are you feeding her?

My Maggie had a hematoma on her ear. She was a boxer/GSD mix & her ears were all GSD. But I took her to the vet & they aspirated it several times as well as treating with antibiotics. So after all that she had an ear that hung down.

The ear is actually not filled with fluid its more a open wound which most likely is Pinnal vasculitis. We are just now switching all treats and food. We barley switched the food to wellness core reduced fat due to pancreas issues two weeks ago but I was giving a variety of treats which I have special order treats like stuffed gullets, beef liver, and chicken jerky so they only have one ingredient. I may have to wrap the ear to heal but finding what will stay on is hard. She doesnt have dirty ears they just get red and itchy when she has a reaction.
