Otitis externa is a common problem for dogs and is often a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Learning to effectively manage otitis is an important part of small animal practice and can be a major area of practice growth. Management of otitis externa is dependent on identifying and controlling the primary and secondary causes and predisposing and perpetuating factors whenever possible. Inadequate treatment and failure to reverse progressive pathologic responses often leads to treatment failures or recurrences. The treatment of otitis externa often requires a complete plan that will involve proper cleaning and topical and systemic treatments. After participating in this free Web conference, you will be able to more effectively manage canine otitis externa and: 

  • Avoid common otitis treatment failure
  • Prevent chronic progressive pathologic changes, reducing recurrences
  • Clean and flush ears by learning proper techniques
  • Apply preferred topical and systemic therapies
