The challenges of treating otitis externa

Long Beach, California convention center

Julia Miller, DVM, DACVD, explains what makes otitis externa so difficult and what owners can do to prevent reoccurring cases

While at the Fetch conference in Long Beach, California, Julia Miller, DVM, DACVD, sat down with dvm360 in an interview and explained how otitis externa can be unique to each patient, sometimes making treatment difficult. However, she also shared some tips for owners to help manage and prevent these dermatology cases.

The following is a partial transcript of the video.

Julia Miller, DVM, DACVD: I think treating otitis externa is so challenging because there's no one size fits all remedy. It's very case dependent, patient dependent, client dependent. So it's difficult because you have to be able to pivot and MacGyver things. And I think that's why some people don't like it. It's why I like it because I get to tinker around and change things. But I think the lack of a simple easy answer is what makes it so tricky.

There's a lot of things owners can do. I think, No 1, it's really important that they have a good relationship with a veterinarian who can help guide them into the correct steps that will work for their specific dog, because the vet is going to be able to say this is what's going on with your pet.
