What is Otitis Externa?
Otitis externa is an inflammation of the outer ear and ear canal. Animals are commonly prone to ear infection, and this is one of the most common manifestations of allergy in dogs. In dogs, those breeds with floppy ears are more prone, since air flow is limited and a warm, moist environment built up, which is conducive to infection.
The external ear in animals is longer and deeper than in humans, which makes it easier for infection or wax to build up or be hard to remove. Treatment is usually by a dual regimen of ear cleaning and ear medication. The aim of cleaning is to remove any byproducts of the infection which lead to further irritation and discomfort, and may be in turn, causes of further infection. Good care often involves cleaning the ear daily, to prevent build-up and bring the infection under control. Predisposing factors that require daily cleaning are wax, dirt, moisture or foreign bodies such as grass seeds.
