Leave the Hematoma Alone

My golden retriever got a small hematoma at the bottom of her ear flap last month. After reading the posts on Earth Clinic about Aural Hematomas, I decided to leave the hematoma alone unless it got too big. That was a wise decision. It didn't get any bigger and disappeared after a few weeks. I had also read that draining it at the vet is not always the best decision as it can make the hematoma bigger.

Hey EC....How is everybody doing? A few months ago, I had wrote in to EC asking for help when my cockapoo came down with hematoma in one of his ears....well I had promised to let you guys know what worked for me so here I am.....hopefully this can help someone out there. After much research and some wonderful advice from you guys...I decided not to go ahead with the surgery which was costing me $400.00 plus my dog was going to be in a lot of pain as well, and just wait this thing out as was suggested by this one lady whose name I can't remember.....sorry....anyways, after six weeks, my dog's ear is back to normal...can't believe it even now..all I did was just leave it alone although sometimes, I would put some ice on it and rub a little arnica cream on it but other than that I pretty much leave it as is....a lot of people had said that the one ear would be kinda deformed....not this one...I am so grateful, this dog is my big baby...lol....hopefully, this can save someone's dog from surgery, a lot of pain and some money.....thanks for listening...
