Dr. Darin Dell, DVM, DACVD joins this episode of the podcast. He is the medical director of Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital in Wheat Ridge, CO. Topical therapy in canine otitis can be very frustrating due to all of the product options and recurrence of infections.
Dr. Dell provides advice on the diagnostic workup of canine otitis and how to create a therapeutic plan for each individual case. Topical commercial leave-in products (such as Osurnia) can provide an easy way to treat infections and increase compliance and follow-up at recheck. We discuss how to implement these therapies in cases and the range of severity canine otitis externa cases can present in the clinic.
