What Screening is Used for the Ear Infection Tests?Updated 10 months ago

The Ear Infection Test for dogs or cats gives pet owners the opportunity to get an ear cytology done for both ears. 

The ear cytology is the diagnostic test used by veterinarians to select appropriate treatment (typically one of more antibiotics, antifungals, and/or anti-inflammatory medications). This test is typically done in the vet clinic and screens for ear mites and mite eggs, yeast, bacteria, skin and inflammatory (immune) cells. Getting this test done in advance of the vet appointment speeds ear treatment selection at the visit.
