The final lecture in the Osurnia Roadshow, led by dermatology specialist Sue Paterson, is now available online, offering free CPD for all vets and VNs.

Hosted by Elanco Animal Health in conjunction with dermatology specialists, Osurnia roadshows aim to advise how to bring first-line OE treatment back into practice to improve outcomes.

Positive outcomes

Speaking at the event at Rutland House Hospital in St Helens – the last in a series of eight venues visited during May and June 2016 – Dr Paterson described how reclaiming the role of treatment administration for OE cases can help vets boost positive outcomes over and above clinical improvement.

She said: “Clients often don’t use the topical ear products we give them. The beauty of Osurnia is it’s something we can do in the surgery. It also helps to get them back into practice, allowing you to check the dog’s ear as well as bond more with that client – that’s very important when managing otitis cases.”

If you missed out on the Osurnia Roadshow or just want to recap on diagnosis and management of canine OE, the webinar featuring Dr Paterson’s presentation and the interactive Q and A session is available online at
