Holly, a Jack Russell, had that very same surgery on her ear back in November of 2007. Holly is still with us at the age of 15 and is doing very well although she has recently gone deaf but only from old age! Without the surgery, she would have gone deaf at a much earlier age. Holly's ear was sewn completely shut during the surgery and her eardrum was actually moved to the side of her head. It seemed very strange to us at the time but Holly adapted right away and it gave her many more years of excellent hearing.........
Holly was 7 years old when she had her surgery. It was a delicate surgery but we had a lot of faith in our vet and knew he would take good care of our baby. Holly had to spend one night in the hospital but only so they could watch for any abnormal bleeding. She came home the next day and didn't have any problems adjusting to a normal life again. She didn't even have to wear the "cone of shame". It took about 10 days for the stitches to come out and that was about it. I had to learn how to clean the new "hole in her head" where her eardrum had to be relocated."
