Dermatology Center for Animals' Video-Otoscopy Service
Utilizing technology for better visualization and understanding of your pet's ear disease
Video-otoscopy is the use of an illuminated otoscope attached to a video camera that transmits magnified and enhanced video to an HD monitor which can be recorded onto a computer. Each exam room is equipped with video-otoscopy. This allows for visualization of both normal and abnormal structures of the ear canal and can be reviewed to explain disease processes.
Video-otoscopy is also available at DCA for other specialized procedures, such as deep ear cleanings for treatment of severe ear (pseudomonas bacterial) infections, inflammatory polyps or removal of other ear tumors, as well as myringotomies and middle ear flushes for treatment of middle ear infections or primary secretory otitis media (PSOM) of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
