Trouble Tuesday


See anything wrong with this picture???
(yes, I am at the vetties, that's why I look so 'happy'....)

Here's a better look....see anythings different abouts my EAR??
Yes, to the untrained eye, I looks like any other 
Wildly HOT Airedale Chick!
Butts, if you notice my signature left ear is down!

WTD??

Why? Wells, I got me a hematoma.  Basically, it's fluid in your ear flap.
(It's hard to tell, butts where the arrow is, is where it is like a water balloon, 
weighing my ear down.)

I had one years ago on the other ear, that was easy peasy ~
aspirate with a syringe and done!

Not so with this new vettie. sigh.

They wanted to put in a drain and everythings, butts Ma said no, she wanted it done like last time.
Aspirate.

FIVE hours later, I am HOME!   I look normal, rights???
NO!!!!  Lookie at my precious ear!!!!
(I had a cone on, butts Ma knew I would freak out, so far, so good, I am leaving it alone with Eagle eye Ma watchin' my every move!)
This is my SAD PUPPY FACE....can I have some cookies???


Ruby's Ma here:  she was very good at the vet, they didn't even have to sedate her, though I did have her on a small dose of relaxant, but no further meds were needed. She did have a cone, but she was freaking out, so as long as I am with her, I'm keeping it off. She's pretty good at not touching bandages, so fingers crossed!   I was hoping for the same vet who did this procedure last time ~ it literally took him five minutes and it was done!  I'm not sure the bandage is totally necessary, but it will keep any further trauma from occurring, if she shakes her head.or tries to scratch at it.




Send cookies, cheesyburgers!
and some POTP too....

  8. Yikes Ruby, poor ear! A couple of us have had those hematomas too. Monty had to have surgery on his but Bailey's drained on it's own. We hope you're feeling better soon.

  10. We can send you some POTP. We hope your 'party ear' is back to normal soon.

    Dui just had ear problems. Because EVEN with two people holding him down, the Vettie couldn't see in his ears. So he had to come back the next day to be SEDATED!

  21. Ruby's Mom, you are so right. A needle aspiration is all that is needed. 5 hours? I think I would be making sure that isn't the vet on duty next time.
    Ruby, dahrling, you look fabulous with your smart ear-wear. Strut your stuff with pride. :)

    are going to be ok and
    that your ear will be back to normal soon.

  25. Oh goodness, I was all ready to pull up in a getaway car to rescue you from that vet place. But it sounds like you needed to be there. Sending cheeseburgers and lots of crossed paws for you my friend!

  26. Awk! So sorry the hot, pawsome Airedale chick was ailing. You look like you handled it like the wagnificent trooper you are, Ruby. I hope the healing is quickly and that furbulous stand-up ear rises again soon! Hugs and tail wags, dear Rudy.

  28. Charlee: "We are very sorry about your ear, Ruby!"
    Chaplin: "Dennis told us once that his sister Saya the Mighty, who we never met, had a huge hematoma in one of her big floppy ears and they had to drain it and sew the ear together almost like a quilt. We can't even imagine!"
    Charlee: "We are sending you lots of purrs to feel better soon!"
