Both coagulase-negative and coagulasepositive staphylococci were recovered from the vertical and horizontal ear canals, although not from all the canals. The number of staphylococci was very similar to that obtained from normal interfollicular epidermis. A detailed, albeit qualitative, study of the staphylococcal flora in normal ears13 revealed several (five) species of coagulase-negative staphylococci in the canine ear canal and four in the feline ear canal. Consideration of the above suggests that the relationship between normal flora and disease is not straightforward.

It may be that the local environment (hot and dry climate) and the microbiologic methods used influenced this result.
