Medical aid for 1 dog in Balakong (Tong Yut Fun’s)

This is our Medical Aid for a dog, Old Mama, who was also neutered. Old Mama was found to have had an aural hematoma.

An aural hematoma is a collection of blood, either fresh or clotted, within the pinna (ear flap). When a hematoma is present, the pinna will appear very thick and spongy. The swelling may involve the entire pinna, or it may involve only one area of the ear.

Surgery is the most common treatment choice for recurrent or persistent hematoma in dogs and cats 

How do dogs get aural hematoma? The condition occurs when trauma or an injury to the ear flap causes the small blood vessels inside the pinna to break and leak internally, resulting in a blood-filled swelling.

Can a dog ear hematoma heal on its own? A dog’s ear hematoma is excruciatingly painful, and the severe swelling might be frightening, it can heal on its own if left untreated, but this might take weeks, leaving your pet feeling pain through the process.

Based on the above, the surgery is definitely justified as we do not want any animal to be in pain, what more, “excruciating pain”.

Ms Tong spent RM481.50 on the surgery, including 2 weeks’ boarding and medication.

The breakdown is as follows:
Surgery: RM200.00
Medication: RM41.50
Boarding: RM240.00

We have provided an aid of RM250 to help out and another RM100 is gifted by Ms Jasmine Ee. The total aid is RM350.
