Ear Infections

Your pet’s ear consultation

Your pet’s ear infection consultation began with the veterinarian asking specific questions related to your pet’s ear condition, as well as general questions regarding their skin and overall health. 

Secondly, a five-point examination was performed, which included:

  1. External ear canal exam 
  2. Microscopic testing 
  3. Internal (otoscope) exam 
  4. Dermatologic examination 
  5. Physical exam 

From there, the results of the above were discussed and a treatment plan was made.
