Hi, my Dutch Shepherd Roxy had 2 ear hematomas 1 in each ear last Friday, it is now Wednesday, and she is violently shaking her head again. Our vet did the quilted stitching pattern on both ears. She did not have an infection nor mites. She did it to herself from scratching a scratch which made more scratches which made them itch more. My question is, how do I prevent her from shaking her head while she is in a cone and still has her stitches in?

Many years ago we had a dog who broke a blood vessel in one of her ears. Our vet wrapped her ear to her head, and put a cone on her. I don't know if your dog is prick eared or not. Mine was a Mastiff Lab mix. Our vet also "tacked' the cartilage in her ear to prevent it from filling up again. We went another 12 years with no problems.

Hope this helps.
