Video Otoscopy

An otoscope is a small, lighted magnification source that enables us to see into your pet’s ear canal. It is often used to assess and detect ear problems early.  Redness, discharge, excess wax, growths or abnormalities, ear mites and even foreign bodies can be detected with an otoscope. At WSVA we have a digital otoscope that is equipped with a small camera that transmits images from the ear canal to a video monitor, giving our veterinarians close-up views during ear exams.  As your pets advocate, our video otoscope will help you understand the diagnosis as you’ll be able to see your pets ear on the screen as well!
