Description

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.

Uses

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.

Precautions

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.

    Animax works wonders

    By on

    WE have had skin issues on our 10 year old German Shepard for years. This is the first product that has eliminated the dry patches and the dark spot on her underside with just a couple of applications.

    Our dog had an open wound on his paw for months. We tried everything out there, including items from vets office. Nothing worked until we tried Animax. We saw results the following day.

    Totally Love it!

    By on

    Our 14-yr-old, mixed breed dog, gets some really bad sores on his paws, groin area, mouth, and eyes. The Animax helps him considerably in these areas, except of course the mouth and eyes. His sores clear up with a few days of use. Our vet suggested we shop for it at Chewy's because we can get a bigger tube for a better price.

    Great product!

    I switched from Tresaderm to Animax for yeast/itchy ears and my cat tolerates it much better. I was told Tresaderm can cause stinging in the ears so maybe that's why. Animax helps keep my boys ears comfortable longer then Tresaderm ever did.

    Have not opened new tube yet but have used this product before and have been very satisfied. Works well to heal interdigital furuncles (cysts) on my GR paws. Also used when my GR cut his paw on the ice.
