New options in the therapy of yeast otitis
Yeast otitis is a very common and sometimes also very frustrating problem in dogs. Some ear cleansers and various topical medications, especially azoles, are effective. In this brand new placebo-controlled study, the efficacy of topical amino acid-complexed zinc gluconate formulated with boric acid (ZGB) or acetic acid (ZGA) was evaluated.

The purpose of this 2-week, double-blinded, controlled clinical trial was to evaluate the efficacy of topical amino acid-complexed zinc gluconate formulated with boric acid (ZGB) or acetic acid (ZGA) versus a topical placebo in the treatment of yeast otitis externa in dogs.

Included in the study were dogs with otitis externa and a cytopathological finding of yeast organisms in the affected ear.

Ears were treated with the placebo, ZGA, or ZGB medications.

Yeast counts as well as clinical appearance of the ears were monitored.

Results revealed that ZGB significantly reduced the number of yeast organisms in cases of otitis externa.

SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE

Patient-specific facemask to facilitate brain biopsymembers
The objective of this pilot study was to describe the application and first preliminary data of a novel MRI and CT compatible patient-specific facemask for stereotactic brain biopsy of intracranial lesions in dogs. Five client-owned dogs presenting for neurological deficits consistent with forebrain disease were included in the study. All dogs had MRI findings consistent with an intracranial lesion. But biopsies in this region are not easy to obtain. Does an individual face mask help?
