Educate your veterinary clients on the basics otitis externa, media and interna and how youll get to a diagnosis.

What the client sees: some extra head shaking and itchiness-normal pet stuff, right?

What you see: a potentially serious problem needing immediate attention and care.

The goal of this handout is to help clients see the signs of otitis through your lens. It covers the three types of otitis (externa, media and interna), the warning signs of each, as well as what clients can expect from you with regards to zeroing in on a diagnosis.
