When a dog is diagnosed with otitis, they can face a lot of pain and discomfort, and as their owner you may have felt that nothing has worked. Whilst you may have been able to find temporary solutions, sometimes it needs to be dealt with medically.
TECA-LBO surgery involves removing the vertical and horizontal canal the integument that is adherent to the bone at the opening of the middle ear, the ear drum and part of the lateral wall of the middle ear. Afterwards, we then follow it up by cleaning out the middle ear and removing the diseased middle ear lining with a curette.
It’s important to note that this operation does come with risks and you must always choose an experienced surgeon who specialises in this area. To learn more about total ear canal ablation, see our website where you can see pictures of previous surgeries.
