We at QSM are pet lovers and we understand how frustrating it can be when your pet is suffering from chronic ear problems. With this in mind we developed our proprietary OTTER diagnostic device, revolutionizing the way you and your veterinarian partner to combat pet discomfort. The OTTER test equipment is currently only available to licensed veterinary hospitals. However, we would like to offer you, as a concerned pet parent, another alternative.
We have a mail in test kit available to screen your pet for Pseudomonas. This test will not rule out other bacterial species or other causes of ear infection but it will allow you to detect the presence of Pseudomonas, a probable indicator of a more serious infection. For the test, you will receive ear swabs, swab return holder and a prepaid return mailer. We will provide results within 24 hours of when the swabs arrive at the QSM lab in Boston. Once completed, you will receive (via email or download) a print out of the results that you can take to your veterinarian. Results can also be accessed by your veterinarian via your unique access code. This single ear test is available to pet owners for $199.99 (includes FedEx standard overnight delivery and return shipping) plus any applicable sales tax for your area.
