Ouch
« on: June 17, 2010, 09:06:43 PM »
gosh darn hematoma, due to head shaking from suspected allergies. 

Before picture, what happens is a vein rupture under the skin of the ear filling the ear flap up with bloody fluid.  He get it cut tomorrow so it drains properly and I need to switch foods etc etc etc...

Yeah, I have been doctoring my labs reoccurring hot spots for several months now. I think spent close to $800 on at least one visit, a nap and some cleaning, two "cones of shame" and several (I think 4 really) cycles of antibiotics.

Now I'm trying it my way. Went and read the Internet, purchased some electric clippers, allergy pills, gold bond medicated powder and some kind of bag balm looking stuff and giving it go.  :biggrin:

He looks like a patch worked quilt but I think I'm making progress.  :nono:


So good luck with that.  :wink:

But I'm with ya on the sidekick thing. Love the lil feller.

My Golden Retriever always used to get yeast infections in his ears from the ears hanging down and not being able to dry in the humidity up up here.

thanks guys

here's the after pic, they cut it open and cleaned it out then sutured the flap to the top of his head and pinned another flap on it.  Gotta go back in a week, meanwhile he's going crazy with that collar.

Wow!! When I had beagles they use to do that occasionally and I would just pop 'em. Talk about bleeding bad!!

You got me feeling sorry for that dog. Looks like a MMA fighter with a cauliflower ear. Poor guy. Hope he get's to doing better.

If he could look in a mirror and see what they did to him he would calm down.  That is until the week is up and then some vet would be eaten alive.

Bop, I tried that twice and it kept getting bigger.  His inner ear started getting infected cuz it was swelling shut so I brought him in.  Trust me, I didnt wanna have to do it, now i find he has allergies and I'm switching foods and buying zyrtec.  Dang food is expensive, this whole ordeal cost me nearly a weeks pay but if you seen how the boy missed him just for that little bit it was all worth it.
