My pup and I have been pounding the woods and thickets pretty hard for the last five weeks. He's got pretty long ears for a Brit, must be the French blood. He's now almost a fringe eared Brit. A couple of the tears are taking quite a long time to heal. The vet says that I shouldn't worry. But I like to do something to help them heal a little faster. Any ideas?
Thanks
Bfly

Keep them clean and dry. They won't heal if they're wet a lot. Also, the dog is going to scratch them frequently. You might need to put an e-collar on the dog for a while.

I think a plastic cone would be nicer.

E-collar = electric collar as well as emergency collar a.k.a the plastic cone of shame

Just to show that I can be as big a prig as anyone, it's Elizabethan collar.

Not sure. But one is happy when you call, "Hey Queenie, give us a kiss!" and the other not so much.
