Do not crush the ear when applying the

Trim any excess hair from the
Aspirate and prepare the ear with non-elastic athletic tape folded over the edges lengthwise and onto the head. Leave a tab out beyond the tip of the
Non-elastic tape is specified to not continually compress the plates into the ear possibly cutting off the blood flow.

The ear should be confined within the plates and not compressed between

Your information regarding a burst blood vessel was very helpful. My beagle is at our vets now having surgery for a ear blood vessel injury. I feel much better knowing what to expect to hear from our vet when it is time to pick him up. I was given some info from our vet, but to hear the specific procedure that is being done, helps me to feel more comfortable with what is actually being done. Thank you.

My vet insists there is no ear infection; however, my 8 yr old male German Shepherd's ear is filling up for the third time in about a month. First, he had the surgery with the buttons; the next day after the bandage was removed,the ear filled up again and then it was lanced, pinned back and taped for another 10 days. His ear has been very warm to touch ever since the bandage came off and now it has started swelling up again. He is shaking his head and yawning more. I am at wits end as to what to do -- take him back or find another vet -- meanwhile he is uncomfortable.
