my cat earflip is swollen and i have no money for a vet right now.
I looked @ some internet things and it might be a hemotoma because i think he might have had earmites. He's quiet and sitting still. I put peroxide and triple antibotic on it. He didn't act as if it hurt, but what can i do. The ear is swollen and i can't see inside the ear to look for earmites.help
I think the earmite theory is probably correct. The swelling will eventually go down; but, only when the ear mites or infection is cleared up. When the hematoma goes down your cat will probably be left with a cauliflower ear.
Check pet stores for a liquid medicine you can drop into the ear canal. The liquid will eventually pass the swelling and reach its destination. Massage the base of the ear for a few minutes to make sure the medication makes it all the way to the end and is distributed evenly.
If this doesn't work, you will have to get the cat to a vet somehow because it is then mostly likely an infection.
