Otoscopy and Rhinoscopy are two essential diagnostic procedures that veterinarians perform on pets to detect and diagnose ear and nasal infections/diseases.
During an otoscopy, the veterinarian uses an otoscope, which is a device with a light and magnifying lens, to examine the pet’s ear canal and eardrum. This procedure can help detect various ear diseases, including infections, inflammation, foreign objects, and tumors. Similarly, rhinoscopy involves the use of a rhinoscope to visualize the nasal cavity. This procedure can detect and diagnose nasal diseases such as infections, polyps, tumors, and foreign objects.
If your pet is exhibiting symptoms such as persistent scratching or shaking their head, discharge or odor from the ears, sneezing, nasal discharge, or difficulty breathing, it’s essential to bring them in for an evaluation. Our veterinarians will perform a thorough physical exam and may recommend further diagnostic tests, such as otoscopy or rhinoscopy, to determine the underlying cause of your pet’s symptoms.
At Mountain View Veterinary Hospital, we understand how important it is to provide accurate and timely diagnosis and treatment for pets with ear and nasal diseases. Our otoscopy and rhinoscopy services are just two examples of the advanced veterinary services we offer. We use advanced equipment and techniques to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients during the procedure.
