Animax is an FDA-approved medicated ointment formulated for the treatment of severe and chronic otitis of varied etiologies, in interdigital cysts found in cat and canine companions, as well as anal gland infections found in dogs. This veterinarian-prescribed ointment is also used to help manage skin disorders characterized by inflammation in both cats and dogs. Animax is made with four active ingredients—nystatin, neomycin sulfate, thiostrepton and triamcinolone acetonide, which provide anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, antifungal and antibacterial therapeutic effects.


Animax Ointment is particularly useful in the treatment of acute and chronic otitis, in interdigital cysts in cats and dogs and in anal gland infections in dogs.

Possible Side Effects

SAP and SGPT (ALT) enzyme elevations, polydipsia and polyuria, vomiting, and diarrhea (occasionally bloody) have been observed following parenteral or systemic use of synthetic corticosteroids in dogs. Cushing’s syndrome has been reported in association with prolonged or repeated steroid therapy in dogs. If hearing dysfunction is noted during the course of treatment with Animax Ointment, discontinue its use.

Drug & Food Interactions

Talk to your veterinarian about any other drugs your dog or cat is taking before starting this medication.


Contact your vet if your pet exhibits signs such as polydipsia, polyuria, and increased weight gain. If redness, irritation, or swelling persists or increases, discontinue use.
