Elanco Launches Dedicated Digital Resource Hub To Help Vets Treat Canine Otitis Externa

Elanco Animal Health UK has stepped up its campaign to support vets and veterinary professionals to treat otitis externa (OE) in dogs first time with the launch of its online Ear Health Hub.

The UK division of the international animal health company, which markets Osurnia™ gel treatment for canine OE*, has created the ‘one-stop-shop’ for canine OE information and vet practice support on its MyElanco website.

The Osurnia Ear Health Hub gathers information from experts including veterinary dermatology specialist Sue Paterson, veterinary dermatologist Natalie Barnard, and clinical animal behaviourist Emily Blackwell, all in one place.

It will also host Elanco’s first ever otitis podcast episode, an interview with Sue Paterson, so busy vets and vet nurses can still connect to Elanco’s information hub, even while on the move.

The hub aims to help vets to enhance their skills at each step; CPD resources enable vets to progress their skills in diagnosis and treatment of canine OE, including advise around responsible antibiotic use, expert tips for vets to use in the consulting room today; and dog owner educational materials that veterinary staff can use in practice and online.

It also provides in-depth information, videos and research about first-line treatment Osurnia, the unique gel formulation, which enters the ear as a liquid and spreads along the ear canal as a gel.

Elanco Animal Health UK Marketing Manager, companion animal therapeutics , Rebecca Bryant said: “We know all too well the challenges vets face when treating canine OE and the significant impact the condition has on the quality of life of both the dog and the owner.

“The Osurnia Ear Health Hub is a new disease resource hub on MyElanco, which provides helpful resources for veterinary professionals looking for answers or to enhance their understanding of the disease. We hope that with more easily accessible information, this will help vets to treat OE cases and communicate with their clients.”
