QSM provides veterinarians and pet owners withthe resources and tools needed to handle the most difficult cases of earinfections. Most ear issues can be treated without much effort. However, ifthey keep coming back and there are signs of infection, we're here to help.
Ear infections are painful, but those unfortunate dogs with Pseudomonas aeruginosa are suffering even more, and don’t get better with standard treatment because it is resistant to many drugs that are typically used to treat ear infections. QSM's testing kits are currently the only technology on the market with the ability to detect and measure the amount of this bacteria in your dog's ears, giving veterinarians the best chance of helping your dog return to normal.
One of the biggest challenges veterinarians and pet owners face with treating pets is when to stop treatment. Stopping treatment early is the number one cause for recurring ear infections. Even though your pet looks to be back to normal, bacteria deep inside the ear can still be alive and will regrow and cause symptoms to come back in a few weeks. That is why you need to go back to your veterinarian for a follow up visit at the end of treatment. However, everyone is busier than ever and getting your pet back is challenging. Now, you can run a QSM OTTER test 1-2 days before the end of treatment and confirm if the infection is all gone. If it is, great! If not, your veterinarian can prescribe another dose or drug to make sure your furbaby gets back to 100%.
