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!
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.
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....
