Chronic Ear Problems

Chronic Pet Ear Problems

Because routine ear examinations with traditional handheld otoscopes do not light the ear canal well, or allow for clear visibility deep into the ear canal, many pet ear problems and chronic conditions often go undiagnosed and untreated.

With powerful tools like the Storz HD Video Otoscope, Dr. Kureshi is able to see a bright, clear image of what's going on deep inside the ear canal. This provides our patients with a more accurate diagnosis and better treatment for inner ear problems.

Since 1998, Dr. Kureshi has provided his patients with the most advanced technology to more accurately diagnose and provide effective treatment for chronic and general pet ear problems.

We are proud to announce the opening of our new clinic.

Advanced Diagnostics and Treatment

Veterinary Video Otoscopy Helps Us Treat Chronic Pet Ear Problems

A routine ear examination using a handheld otoscope could miss easily treatable problems. By using our in-clinic veterinary video otoscope, we are able to provide better and more accurate treatment.

What Is An Otoscope?

An instrument for examining the external canal and tympanic membrane of the ear. A photo of what can typically be seen with an HD video otoscope is pictured to the right.

What Is The Storz HD Video Otoscope And What Can You Do With It?

The Storz HD Video Otoscope is powerful tool in aggressively treating chronic animal ear infections and other ear problems. It has a built in camera and a powerful, bright light. It connects to a video system that allows us to capture, view, and record images at a magnification of 15x.

This not only means we can see better, brighter images at a much larger magnification, but when combined with an endoscope, we can treat problems that might lie even further in the ear.

We can even send tools through the video otoscope, including our state-of-the-art laser, to biopsy, remove and/or treat problems.

What Does This Mean For My Pets?

We can more accurately diagnose, treat, and perform procedures with minimal invasiveness to your pet.

Having the Storz HD Video Otoscope allows us to more accurately diagnose and treat inner ear problems in our patients that might otherwise go undiagnosed.
