10 mos. male CBR pup cut his ear Sun. morning (have no idea how). Not a big or deep cut but right on bottom of leather and OMG the blood. Now on day 3 and it still breaks open regularly and sprays blood. Today there was some ooze under the EMT gel so I'm not sure keeping it covered all the time is allowing it to heal.
What I did--when we first found it I used EMT gel and styptic powder to stop the bleeding, which seemed to take forever. Shake, splat, blood everywhere. So I made a dew rag of vetwrap to smash it to his head so he can't shake it. Seemed to help but he HATES it so I've had to keep a lampshade on him. I took it off some yesterday but it broke open again, so I left it on overnight. This morning there's some ooze under the crusted EMT gel which of course came flying off at the first shake so back to the vet wrap. The thinner kinds of liquid bandages don't stop the bleeding but the EMT gel is so sticky and crusty it seems to make a bigger mess that is more easily shaken off (with more bleeding) plus it sticks to the wrap.
Just really frustrated and tired of cleaning up blood splatters. And he is so pathetic in his lampshade, he's afraid to move (it is clear, so he can see through it).
Would welcome any tips for things that have worked for ear cuts.
