Abstract: Aural haematoma is a condition where a collection of blood forms between the cartilage layers of the pinna, clinically seen as a fluid-filled swelling of the pinna. It is usually caused by blunt trauma, and if left untreated a deformity may result. Various treatments are employed to relieve the haematoma and to prevent the recurrence. The objective of the present case report was to describe a surgical approach for the correction of aural haematoma and is to observe the efficiency of pressure bandage in the haematoma management. During internship placement at Madras Veterinary College these cases were recorded. Dogs brought to the clinics of Madras Veterinary College with complaint of swollen ear flap were examined. On physical examination, some fluctuating swelling extended to the base of the ear flap was noticed. It was diagnosed as aural haematoma and decided for surgical correction. The animals were sedated and the aural haematoma was surgically treated. After draining the serosinguinous fluid, the cavity was irrigated with povidone iodine and a protective pressure bandage was applied. As a part of postoperative care, fluid and antibiotic therapy were administered. No complication was noted and the animal showed uneventful recovery. A total of four cases with aural haematoma were recorded during the period.
