In this educational and informative webinar, Dr Deborah Simpson from 'The Skin Vet' in Auckland, shares her practical approach to the treatment of canine otitis externa. Deborah's presentation will cover everything from why dogs get ear infections in the first place, to the best approach for the first time offender and what to consider if the problem comes back, along with how to get the best results from treatment.
Debbie graduated from Massey University in 2008 and in 2009 she moved to Australia to undertake a rotating internship at Veterinary Specialist Services in Brisbane. A residency in Veterinary Dermatology followed at Melbourne Veterinary Specialist Centre from 2010-2013. In May 2013 she undertook further training at Cornell University in New York State with two of the most respected and best known veterinary dermatologists in the world, Drs Danny Scott and Bill Miller. She worked in a referral dermatology practice in Melbourne for 2 years from Nov 2013 until Nov 2015. In July 2014 she passed the Fellowship exams of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists and became a registered specialist in Veterinary Dermatology.

Debbie's publications include an original research paper on feline pemphigus and a case report on pyoderma gangrenosum for Veterinary Dermatology, a paper on hyperbaric oxygen therapy in 2009 for the Australian Veterinary Practitioner, which also won the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists medal and an undergraduate article on the subject of total ear canal ablation and bulla osteotomy in the newsletter of the Companion Animal Society of New Zealand.

In 2016 Debbie opened a specialist dermatology clinic called "The Skin Vet" which is based from two hospitals, The Strand Vet in Parnell and VSA in Mt Wellington. She works with a wonderful nurse called Ellie Clark.
