Otitis is a painful infection that usually presents itself in the ear canal, and the some common symptoms include excessive scratching and attention being paid to the affected ear. You may also have noticed a bad odour or your dog being in visible pain and discomfort, alongside head shaking.
Amongst the treatments available for Otitis, sometimes the only way to take care of the problem is to opt for Total Ear Canal Ablation. This surgery is performed to remove the diseased tissue, but it comes with risks that you need to be aware of.
At Dermvet we are experts at performing TECA-LBO surgery, and it’s our job to inform you of the facts. It’s our opinion that if surgery is the only route left available to take care of the pain and discomfort, then the reward greatly outweighs the risks.
Before anything goes ahead, we will go through with you in detail the procedure along with risks and surgery after-care if Total Ear Canal Ablation is required.
