Our hospital offers video otoscopy to assist in the diagnosis of ear problems, such as external and middle ear infections, ear mites, foreign bodies in the ear canal and ear canal/middle ear tumors. Most veterinarians have a hand-held otoscope which gives a limited view of the ear canal and eardrum. If an ear problem becomes difficult or recurrent, our team can use a video otoscope, which allows deep examination and diagnostic sampling of the external and middle ear.
It is specially designed to fit in the ear canal for ease of use and enables precise visual control of the otoscope. In addition, it is designed for treatment of various conditions such as cleansing the ear with flushing and suctioning, curettage of excess debris, removal of foreign bodies, wax plugs and polyps, and biopsy of masses in the ear canal or middle ear.
