My filly nearly severed her ear off (it was literally hanging) a little less than a year ago (In March) and honestly it seems like dressings actually irritate the ear more. I was able to make one for my gal but gave up after the first day because she tried rubbing her ear, making it worse, and the bandage slid a lot.
How bad is the ear? What has your vet said about it?
My girls' ear healed well with some injected antibiotics, bute, thorough cleanings (cleaned daily, and she was sedated once for a thorough cleanse), and time. I also used Sugardine which did WONDERS to help heal her, but only do that if your vet okays it. The good thing about an injury at this time of year, is that there are no flies. Those were a huge issue for me.
