Here we are again with Isis. She was rolling in the grass and let out a yelp. She came over to me so I could inspect her and saw nothing. I had to go pick up my new rabbit (pics to come) When I came home I noticed her ear was swollen. She'd been bit by something. Could have been a bee or a stump lifter. Who knows. That was Wednesday evening. On Saturday I noticed it was bigger. I was going to make her an appointment to et her needles for Monday but I figured she needed to go that day. Basically they told us it was fro. Her shaking her head after the bite. The hematoma is basically a blood blister. She's now on steroids to help it shrink and she's not allowed to shake her head of dog at it.
Update: the steroids were horrible. She was fine when she was one then, but once we started weaving her, it's like she went crazy hungry. This dog never really chewed on anything. But she was in every garbage can. She even chewed a pair of my dirty underwear up while I was doing laundry. Not like her at all. After the steroids were gone, the hematoma started coming back. I wasn't doing steroids again. I just left it be. It dried up on its own but it looks a little funny. I don't care and neither does she.
