New dobie

I just picked up my Doberman pup today and she keeps scratching her fresh stitches on her ears and they both started bleeding a little. Any advice on how to prevent her from scratching

just make sure none of the stitches are pulled out too much
and that the ears get enough air at all times

We used the inflatable neck donut too. Bought it at Petco. Worked great! Every time she did try to scratch we told her "No!" She stopped pretty quick. The first 3-4 days are the worst. Hang in there!

Welcome from Missouri and congrats on your new puppy. Did you have the ears cropped or did she come cropped??? I ask because most breeders keep the puppy til the ears are healed. Then you would not have to deal with something you are not familiar with.

But the donut should work and you can also put on a medicated power to help dry them up and reliieve the itching.

She cam withher ears already cropped and the breeder gave me a detailed DVD what to do with her ears. It's just a little hard for me seeing her in pain when I put polysporin on her ears . She bled a little yesterday but today it's much better with no bleeding
