Dog Blog Post #2018
Poor Zachary - at the vet's to have a suddenly appearing ear hematoma looked at.
We had it drained for now, and will keep an eye on it.
It was fairly small, so there's a chance it will resolve itself.
If it returns, we could try draining again and adding steroids.
If that doesn't help then we'll have to choose between letting it heal on its own, which apparently takes weeks with the high probably of the ear becoming "hard and crinkly", or he'll need surgery to open it, drain it, and numerous sutures to quilt the ear back together, which takes weeks to heal and still can result in a certain amount of hard and crinkly.
