The video otoendoscope allows the veterinarian to view the area deep within the ear canal on a computer screen. The image clarity and degree of illumination are far superior to that seen with the traditional otoscope.
Using a video otoendoscope, warm saline can be used to flush out debris and exudate. Special forceps can be used to remove clumps of especially tenacious material. Good visualization allows the eardrum to be avoided and protected during the cleaning process.
Video otoendoscopy allows more efficient, thorough and safer ear cleaning. Since ear debris can harbor or serve as a nutritional source for bacteria and yeast, cleaning is important to control chronic ear problems.
