The Lecture:  Otitis Externa; Practical diagnosis and management

Otitis is one of the most common presentations in veterinary practice. It is frequently recurrent and challenging to manage. Cases of chronic and recurrent otitis have multiple causes that must be diagnosed and managed for a successful long term outcome. Inappropriate management can lead to treatment failure, irreversible chronic pathological changes, and/or antibiotic resistance.

In this lecture Tim will discuss

  • The general approach to otitis
  • Practical steps to achieve a rapid diagnosis
  • The pros and cons of the often confusing array of ear medications and cleaners that are available
  • Some of the less well-recognised problems; e.g. primary secretory otitis media in dogs, inflammatory polyps and cystomatosis in cats, and problems with lop ears in rabbits
  • New treatment options (including laser surgery).

Refreshments from 7pm
