Clear drainage from a heifers ear??

Postby Farmerclark » Tue Aug 21, 2018 1:24 pm

One of our heifers, we saved this year, we noticed , has a droopy ear, and it looks like clear liquid draining from her ear, is this something that needs. A vet to look at, or maybe it just got hurt from another cow? What's your thoughts?

I have seen and drained dog ears and pig ears from them rupturing a vessel but it has never been clear . Is it on the outer edge in the cartage area?? Is it puffed up and swollen ?? if you not comfortable looking at it you Might want to have a vet look at it.
