Aside from looking very gruesome... The skin looks pretty good, not red and awful, doesn't it? Is the wound itself leaking anything pus-like? Poor Ernie... Soon this will pass and he'll be bouncing off the walls again!!

Does I needs to come puppy sit so ya'll can takes a break?

Berts Blog said...

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

OMD, Ernie has PLUMBING? He rilly did get a make-ofur at the V-E-T. Udder than the pipes sticking out, looks good to me.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

That skin area looks pretty good to us, Frankie - we think Ernie is on the road to recovery. Mom had a cockapoo once whose ear canal kept closing shut tight and he had a drain like that that went through his canal and out on the side of his neck. It was in there for a really long time to try to force the skin to stay open on the canal. But in the end poor guy had to have all the inner workings of his ear removed because it wouldn't stay open:(

Paws crossed for him to continue to do well.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

HI Mr Frankie, don't worry Little Ernie's draino thingy doesn't look too bad. Soon it will be all fixed and it will be funtimes again. Do you remember when I had my operation and got an infection and mum thought my guts might drop out of the hole in my tummy. It was totally gross. But, after antibiotics and salt water washes, bingo, all better and now you cant even see when my wound was.

Take care all. Sending heaps of love and slobber to help heal Little Ernie. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

chicamom85 said...

Poor Ernie, that's got to be uncomfortable! That said, his skin does look good as others have said above and it's not all red and nasty looking. Keeping Ernie in my prayers.

K9friend said...

Poor little Ernie. I didn't know he's been having such a rough time of it. It's nerve wracking when a seemingly simple procedure becomes so complicated. Sending many positive thoughts your way.

I'm so sorry about all the trouble poor Ernie is going through! That drain thing doesn't look a bit comfy.

I'm sending my prayers and headling thoughts for him!
