Our family pets’ ears are in the thick of things when it comes to exploring the greater Huntington Beach area. However, your furry family member can come down with several ear conditions that cause pain and discomfort. If your dog or cat is constantly scratching its ears, there is a very good chance that he or she have developed a reaction to an external factor that is causing discomfort. Utilizing an ear otoscope, our veterinarian can quickly identify the cause of the discomfort before offering effective treatment. At Friendly Animal Hospital, we are not happy unless you, your cats, and your dogs are feeling great.
Caring for Cats & Dogs in Huntington Beach
As mentioned, our pets can end up suffering ear infections from a host of different circumstances. Our team of caring health professionals can pinpoint the cause of your pet’s discomfort with an ear otoscope exam. Animal ear issues can take many forms, but some of the more common issues we come across in the light of our ear otoscope include:
- Ear mites
- Foreign debris
Any of these three problems can cause physical discomfort that you will notice in your pet’s mannerisms or actions. A comprehensive ear exam will also identify conditions like allergies or yeast and fluid buildup, which can contribute to:
- Ear infections
- Impacted middle ear
- Ruptured eardrums
Medical technology such as the ear otoscope takes out the guesswork when it comes to treating your family cat or dog. An ear otoscope exam makes it easy for our veterinarian to identify and address any ear issue your pet might be suffering from.
