Hematoma on ear - 02/10/2005
My 4 year old GSD has a Hematoma on the top portion of the right pinna. I have had him to the Vet. twice and have another appt. tomorrow to have the pocket of blood aspirated. I am concerned that his ear will no longer stand erect once healed. My Vet. can not give me a definite answer. Just curious if anyone has had experience with this issue.

I have been aspirating for a week and it keeps filling up. Ear is erect must have surgery to close gap.

4 year old NMGSD had hematoma ear surgery; 2 weeks later stitches are out and ear is erect and OK.

Reply from original message 18. Thanks for the reply's and input. His first vet finally decided to do what they called surgery. (Slit ear open and left to heal wide open and drain on it's own) A month later my dogs ear still wasn't healed and filled back up with fluid and became infected. Changed vets and new vet did his best to clean up the mess he was left with by doing another surgery closing it with mattress stitches. I understand that all vets have different procedures for handling issues with our pets BUT when I was told by a technician in my first vets office that "you know we don't do a lot of these (hematoma procedures) here, so..." I wish that they wouldn't have touched him to begin with if that was the case! Puppy is feeling better so I leave it as lesson learned the hard way!
