It has been suggested that ear cases may make up more than 10% of the typical companion animal veterinarian’s case load, so the ability to manage ear disease well is essential for the primary care veterinarian. Otology is one of the most rapidly expanding branches of small animal medicine and surgery and although there are many excellent text-books already available on this subject, this is the first – and I hope one of the most complete – illustrated atlases of ear disease. I am grateful that Wiley-Blackwell has indulged my fascination for ear disease by allowing me to compile it. Ear disease for me is a passion: not only is it the challenge to diagnose and treat the dogs and cats that present to me every day in the clinic but also the challenge to pass on knowledge to fellow professionals, so that the care of ear disease in the species we deal with can be improved.
The pain that otitis can cause is in my opinion often underestimated. Frequently it is only after medical therapy has resolved disease, or radical surgery has removed an ear canal, that owners can recognize how much discomfort their pet has been in, as they perceive dramatic changes in their dog’s or cat’s behaviour. Ear disease should never go untreated; even with the financial constraints placed on us by many of our clients we have a duty to make animals with otitis comfortable.
