Two short films created to teach pet owners how to administer veterinary prescribed ear drops and routinely clean their pet’s ears have been launched by Elanco Companion Animal Health.

Available to view on Elanco Companion Animal Health’s YouTube Channel, the informative films have been produced in association with the University of Bristol.

Although both films include step-by-step guidance on how to restrain a dog to administer ear treatments and cleaners, the first provides instructions on how to administer ear drops (such as Surolan) for the treatment of otitis externa, while the second offers hints and tips on how to use a veterinary supplied ear cleaner (such as Surosolve).

As well as being viewed on YouTube, the videos can also be embedded into veterinary practice websites or used on waiting room TV screens and are available in different formats upon request from your local Elanco Companion Animal Health key account manager.

Matthew Rowe, senior brand manager at Elanco Companion Animal Health, said: “The new YouTube films will enable dog owners to learn more about how to correctly administer ear treatments and cleaners to ensure that the procedure is as positive as possible for their pet. This will lead to better owner compliance and happier pets.”

Elanco has also revised its popular Surolan and Surosolve client leaflet and is running a special offer for the products offering veterinary practices up to 20% free Surosolve ear cleaner with qualifying purchases of Surolan.
