Cinner- thats true. I had the idea that I'd be able to wrap the metal and put a stopper on the ends so that it can't come off, but I'm not sure thats safe enough. The last thing she needs is a gouged out eye >.> I'm going to redo my design, for sure xD
EmilyJoy, thanks for the links. I actually have one of those ear fly maks type things that would fit her, but my issue is that I really think that if the mesh/cloth isn't being held away from the ear by something (such as wire or something similar) it is going to stick to the wound and potentially tear it or at very least, irritate it and hurt.
Charley- if you continue reading you'll see that we did finally get her normal vet (who was unavailable at the time) out and he sedated her to clean the ear out. Its too late to try and close it up manually, though, so the best we can do is keep it clean, apply medication to keep infection out, and get those blasted flies to leave it alone! I REALLY wish TSC or steinhausers had SWAT >.>
Egrogan- aw, thanks for the offer! I'm going to sort through an old box of fly masks and blankets that I pulled out of storage today or tomorrow to see if we have one that will fit her, but if not I might take you up on that!
I might just try making my own fly mask out of that pattern though, with the mesh if I can figure out how to keep the ear material off of the cut itself somehow...
