These swellings are not carnassial tooth abscesses!

Day 3. Intensive fluid IV, antibiotics and painkillers, the swelling of the right ear started to become gangrenous (black skin).

August 2, 2018. This is the only image sent by the owner when I phoned up to enquire about the dog on Aug 1, 2018.

The owner did not return my call but texted the image as shown below. Wound heals very well, indicating an excellent outcome.
