Hematoma In Golden Retriever's Ear

Hey All,.....'took precious dog, "PD" to vet to examine fluid filled bump (Hematoma) on left ear. Vet said, its due to trauma of head shaking (ears flapping) and options were: $450.00 surgery or 2 week Prednisone regimen with addtional meds to offset likelyhood of bleeding ulcer "side affect." Neither option is acceptable. I have applied arnica gel 3x per day, given Hamamelis Virginica (Bioron) pellets 3x per day, had one cold laser treatment at various settings for appx. 1/2 hour and nothing has changed. Does anyone have an experience with this or some advice?

Did you try homeopathic Arnica Montana 30C pellets? Can dissolve in water and allow to drink once, and as needed for swelling. Do not leave it to sip all day, each separate drink is a dose.

There is a pet homeopath here in Charlotte, Kristy Lampe. I'm trying to locate her contact info. There is also Commonwealth Animal Hospital in Monroe Rd area. They do homeopathy too. Kristie is amazing and cheaper.

Homeopathic silicea helps an abscess to rupture, to clear out the infection.
we've cured multiple severe abscesses on our cats with this remedy.

I'd make the dog's food grain-free, give(small amounts) kefir and bone broth, coconut oil, liver, for gut healing to fight off any infection. But, unless it is bothering the dog, I'd let it be.

Thank you Pat! I will contact Dr. Kristy Lampe first thing tomorrow. I will also do the arnica montana 30 as you directed. I will keep you postd onhow it goes. It is neither painful or life threatening, but I don't want it to get any bigger or deform her ear as in "cauliflower ear" issue. hence the urgency.

Pat,....is this an ointment or pellets to be ingested?

The Silicea is homeopathic pellets.

Kristy is not a "doctor". She is schooled and skilled in homeopathy.

Comment by Dianne on June 22, 2010 at 8:49pm
O.K., should I give both the Arnica Montana (in H2O) AND the Silicea pellets (30 C as well?) together in water or seperate doses of each? Oops on calling Kristy a doctor,....if she is a homeopathic
"guru" she is a doctor to me! :)

I would try the arnica and see if that helps. If it helps, then I would continue to give it 'as needed', IF the swelling comes back/increase. If the arnica doesn't help after a couple or three doses, then I'd try the Silicea.

Will do! Thank you so much for this Pat! I will contact Harriet Baucom for some bones and liver,....'don't think my dog's "Taste of the Wild" dog food has grain, but will double check with new bag tomorrow. 'Am heading to friend tomorrow for another cold laser treatment as well.
Don't have any Kefir at home and am reluctant to get it at Earth Fare, but if you say so, I will. I will slip coconut oil into her food tomorrow,....tee hee, ...she will think she is eating a "Mounds" bar sans the chocolate (a big no-no for pooches!).

Just need a teaspoon of coconut oil a day is plenty.

You don't have kefir? Must come by and get some from me. :-) It is easy and free.

The stuff at the store is high in sugar, a bit of yogurt is fine, instead.

I would love to come by and get some from you! I am off work the rest of the week and my number is 704-904-4582. Call me and and we will work out a time! I am getting milk with L.D. Peeler tomorow at 3:00 in Fort Mill,......would that time frame work? I live near Providence H.S.,......where are you?
