950. Follow up - lateral ear resection of poodle - operated on Apr 17, 2012

April 19, 2012
Ear operation areas were wet. Took some images. Cleaned up the ears. Gave 2.5 mg pred PO. Painkillers and antibiotics. Dog was eating. No pain on touching ears. Applied trimetho powder onto wound to dry it. No chemicals like iodine or KMnO4 as the area is stitched up and such chemicals irritate and delay healing.

Review in the morning. Ear operation area much drier. Dog looks happier. It takes lots of nursing in such operations. At least 7 days to clean wound to ensure proper healing.
