Welcome to the Auralsplint™ Aural Hematoma Treatment for Canine. You may have already been affected with the causes leading you to this site. An aural hematoma is an affliction of the animal’s ear where a blood vessel(s) break and begin to expand a blood pool within the ear tissue layers of skin and cartilage.
First choice for many owners is to directly go see your veterinarian for diagnosis and treatment. Diagnosis is fairly straight forward. Your dog is in discomfort due many reasons. The added weight makes the ear hang down unnaturally. Also, and most important to know, is the skin and cartilage are being ripped apart. The tissues which hold together the layers already have torn to the edges of the blood pool and are continuing to tear as long as the hematoma is continuing to expand. This will continue until an aspiration by hypodermic needle. With the pressure now gone, the animal has some relief, for a short while, until the hematoma refills again and expands to the point of full, and begins to tear more tissues. Tough choices lay ahead.
01. Does your clinic offer treatments other than surgery?
02. Is your veterinarian informed about using an ear splint to correct the broken blood vessels in the ear?
03. Will your vet use an Auralsplint kit you provide them if they are not carrying the product in their clinic?
The path I have chosen to ensure the success of the Auralsplint™ has not been easy. I self-funded a field study for five years, with voluntary participation of animal owners all looking (like me) to find an alternative to the treatments available. I found many did not want surgery, could not afford surgery, or could not have surgery due to the general anesthetic complications. 190 participants with 49 returned surveys comprised the study. The resulting manuscript Auralsplint™ Descriptive Report access is published on the website under veterinary portal. It is with great honor to present this to the public, and to the scientific world, although the study is considered biased due to the nature of its undertaking by the author. I left the reporting to the participants, and compiled their returns into the manuscript, as best as I could, all while trying to be as openly investigative as possible. I will let the Report stand on its own merits, and you can decide. The FDA through voluntary Pre-Market Approval has concluded the Auralsplint is a medical class 1 device safe as prescribed under supervision of licensed veterinarians included in a complete clinical examination. Auralsplint Inc. PBC will be pursuing Licensed Veterinarians for clinical trials.
So, from this day forward, the public will have a cost effective, non-surgical, corrective alternative option for treating an aural hematoma in dog, the Auralsplint™.
