Eat hematoma- home treatment?

Recommended Posts

shoot-straight

My now 12 yo lab has terrrible allergies and lots of skin issues as a result. How he escaped the dreaded ear hematoma till now I'll never know, but he's now got a decent sized one. It's affecting about 1/2 his ear and is kinda moderate in size, compared to a bad one my last lab got. We did the surgical open and stitch procedure. Really want to keep him off the table if I can.

 

Anything I can do at home to help things? Obviously I'm dealing with the ear infection already. Ice maybe?

I'm pretty sure it has to be drained first then wrapped and maybe a cone

 

I never had one put under by the vet when they treated it

Ask your vet about doing a "teat tube" procedure.  Works great and no anesthesia needed.

Vet thought the hematoma was pretty small overall.  Decided best course of action was to leave it alone- provided I could keep him from shaking or scratching It and making it worse. 

 

As as of now, looks like it's a good move, it's much, much smaller today. 

 

Thanks for the help.
