Q. My 8y old lab has a hematoma that cover a good portion of her left ear. It doesn't appear to be causing her pain. Will it reabsorb if we are patient?

A. It may well resolve over time but this could result in significant scarring of the ear which can affect movement and reduce air circulation in the ear long term and making future ear problems more likely. It is also very important that you get treatment for the existing problem which has caused this hematoma and your vet can then advise on long term prevention strategies also
