We've had some hounds who have had endless cysts - fast as we'd take them off, others would appear. In the end, rather than all that, we'd just leave them unless they appeared in a difficult place, or burst. I think you may find you need some antibiotics to help this burst one heal up. However, I'd not leap in and get them taken off - much as it might be wise to have the occasional one checked in case it happens to be a 'nasty' - fine needle aspirate.

The sister of the boy I'm using in my avatar at the moment was continually getting these - he never had one!!

Thanks for the reply, no I'm not going to rush to have it removed, if only his vet would do it under a local then yes. Thought we'd got rid of it earlier this year when it was spooned (think that's the term) but burst again a few days ago. I'm aware that surgery is probably the only answer but I'm always looking for options, ideas to try, Many thanks.

Found similar thing on Princess Buttercup last night. I expressed most of the gunk & cleaned with Hibiclens. It's much improved this morning but headed to the vet to see it antibiotics might be in order. On a funny side note, I just told her "don't scratch your sore ear baby!" She gave me the dirtiest look known to man & I'm fairly certain she even rolled her eyes at me as she went back to scratching her good ear.
