Video otoscopy allows us to get a magnified look at a patient's ear canal by showing the image on a video monitor in the exam room. The MedRx otoscope makes it easier to diagnose ear infections, ear mites, ear ticks, foreign objects, or tumors. It can be used to perform ear washes on very infected/dirty ears and to remove foreign material from the ear canals. Signs of an ear infection and other issues can include scratching at the ears, shaking the head and/or head tilt, swelling of the ear flap, and odor/discharge coming from the ears. Please call if your pet is displaying any of these signs.
