The new MPS Head covers are a brilliant innovation and are so much easier to use and more versatile that trying to place an ear bandage.  I have used them in a few cases where I have drained an aural haematoma with a needle to see if the haematoma will resolve before going down the surgical route and so far have had great success with 2 out of 2 resolving after draining and placing the head cover.  I am sure there will be some that don’t resolve but also know that the head cover will be just as useful after surgery to stop the ears flapping around during the recovery period.  They are very adjustable and fit well and are designed so that the cover stays where it needs to be and stop the ears flapping around.  They are tolerated by the dogs much better that I expected and certainly are more comfortable to the dog. They are also easier to put on and take off that a Elizabethan Collar or ear bandage so allow the owner to medicate the ears where necessary. I also used one after stitching up an ear after it had got torn on a nail and it worked well.  I always smile when the dogs come in looking like they are wearing a shower cap.
