Bruno is a tiny 4-month-old Chiweenie that had a big swelling on his ear – an aural hematoma!  This can happen when the ear is traumatized – even with the head just shaking back and forth! – and tiny blood vessels burst in the ear flap.  This often won’t go away on its own, and so the team at Vets in Vans recommended surgery – along with a neuter – for little Bruno.  SAGE Compassion for Animals was able to assist with funding and Bruno had his surgery – and has to sport his new cool headgear for a few days to prevent shaking while the ear heals.
