What is Pinnectomy?
Pinnectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removing a portion of your pet’s ear canal to improve airflow and reduce the risk of chronic ear infections. This procedure may be recommended for pets that have chronic ear infections or those that have a history of ear infections that do not respond to other treatments.
What is the Pinnectomy Process Like?
The pinnectomy process begins with a comprehensive examination and diagnostic tests, such as blood work and imaging, to determine the nature of the ear infection and ensure that your pet is healthy enough for surgery. If surgery is recommended, our experienced veterinarians will perform the procedure using advanced techniques and equipment to minimize pain, reduce the risk of complications, and ensure a speedy recovery.
After the procedure, we will provide you with detailed instructions for post-operative care, including pain management and monitoring for any signs of complications. In most cases, pets can return to their normal activities within a few days to a week after surgery.
