Veterinary Video Otoscopy
The video otoscope, an exciting development in diagnostic capability, was first introduced in 1997. Vetcetera invested in this equipment and their staff veterinarians have attended advanced training in otitis to maximize patient care.

Not only is the scope used in diagnosing ear pathology, it is unparalleled in what it offers in treatment accuracy and precision. Connected to a device called the "Earigator," the instrument allows for deep flushing and drying of the ear canal, while watching a clear real-time image on a video monitor. Often the ear drum cannot be evaluated until a deep ear flush to remove wax and debris has been performed.
Within the probe is a 2 mm working channel so instruments can be inserted into the canal. The scope can be used in the ear canal to remove a foreign object, curette out a wax ball, biopsy a tumor or flush and culture the middle ear. Pictures can be taken and downloaded into a patient's file or the procedure can even be saved as a video.
