Healing Ears One Dog at a Time
Pets’ ears are delicate and vascular. It can take weeks or longer to get an ear injury to heal because of the persistent ear flapping. This repetitive motion tends to reopen the injury by forcing blood down through the already compromised tissue. The No Flap Ear Wrap is designed with a skeletal system sewn in including a strong plastic spine to stop the wrap from sliding back. This keeps the ears isolated and protected while they heal.
Uses include recovery from hematomas and post-surgery healing, preventing small hematomas from growing sometimes avoiding surgery, healing of knicks and cuts to the ear flap, cheatgrass prevention, and much more.
