If you have a dog that already has a hematoma and you know that shaking its head is only going to make it worse, and if it's swollen because of the hematoma already, should you try wrapping the dog's ears or just leave it?


Some dog owners have found that it helps to wrap the dog's ear to protect it from head shaking or the self-trauma that may come from scratching at it. Care is needed when wrapping it, though, as wrapping it too tight may cut off the blood supply. Some dog owners like to use Happy Hoodies to temporary manage the situation until surgery is done.
