I discovered an aural haematoma in my dogs ear-flap last Friday evening. It was about the diameter of a 50p piece, was hot and turgid and she was avoiding it being touched. It has now almost completely gone and she is happy for me to gently examine the ear having given her homeopathic Arnica 200C and Hamamelis 30C every day since then as well as applying Hamamelis solution to both the outside and inside of the ear flap every night. This has avoided surgical draining and suturing which does not have a good track record for resolving the issue. If it happens again, I will repeat this homeopathic protocol as it has effectively treated the condition without any risk or trauma of surgery.
