Medium otitis is the result of an inflammatory process. Osteotomy of the tympanic bubble can be recommended with very good results in the extension of inflammatory processes with a chronic character in osteitis or neoplastic processes at this level. Actually more efficient is doing lateral osteotomy in the case of dogs if we take into consideration the anatomical particularities. The observations were made on 5 dogs, of ages between 6-9 years, diagnosed trough clinical examination and complementary examination methods like neurological examination and X ray examination, that suffered from chronic suppurative otitis media. The surgical approach is done on the lateral side, over the external auditory canal, to the horizontal part of it, dilacerations of the auditory canal until cranial level, where we make an incision on the canal so that we can perform the osteotomy of the bubble. The osteotomy of the bubble was done using an adequate milling machine specially made for this purpose. The compromised (necrotic) bone part was removed in 2 cases in a proportion of 50%. In all cases the cavity of the bubble was cleaned with betadine solution with a concentration of 1‰. After 14-21 days after surgery the evolution was good.
