J Vet Med Ser A. The sample size refers to the number of dogs that were examined in the clinic during each time period. Antibacterial sensitivity patterns of bacteria isolated from dogs with otitis externa. Distribution of dogs with healthy ears and those with otitis externa infected ears across different ear types as categorized on the basis of ear form erect versus pendulous and hairiness of the ear canal hairy versus not hairy.

The relative contribution of yeast and bacteria in otitis externa was also examined given that these are frequently targeted when treating this disease, and bacterial genera associated with local cases were identified.
Identification of bacterial cultures was restricted to the genus level, given that API strips do not accurately identify organisms from veterinary origin to species level 24 — Laura R.
In some cases these sick animals can be brought into a special quarantine facility at the Provincial Wildlife Park in Shubenacadie where they can be monitored and studied by a veterinarian who is a wildlife health specialist. Breed variations in histopathologic features of chronic severe otitis externa in dogs: 80 cases — J Am Vet Med Assoc.
Over 6 y at CCVC, dogs were diagnosed with at least 1 event of otitis externa infection out of dogs examined, for an overall frequency of diagnosis of Res Vet Sci. From May to November , we undertook a prospective study of active canine otitis externa infections at CCVC to identify bacterial genera associated with these infections.
Breeds with pendulous ears were associated with a higher frequency of otitis externa relative to breeds with erect ears in our study, although ear hairiness was not.
