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.

    Great product

    By Laraib on Jul 16, 2021

    My cat unfortunately got some bacteria on his skin and our vet prescribed us this ointment, but we ran out of it, so I checked chewy and they had it! I didn’t have to go back to my vet in order to get more. Chewy delivered it in 2-3 days. They also made sure to contact my vet to make sure it was okay for them to send

    Something that works!

    By Hawk on Mar 30, 2021

    I have been battling hot spots and especially yeast infections on my dog forever with everything suggested on forums and internet. When I took my pup in for dental surgery my vet saw his yeast infection on his groin and prescribed this. Worked like a charm and quickly too. Another fanatic thing with ordering this from Chewy it was half the price!

    Works Great!

    By Titi on Mar 25, 2021

    It works immediately. My vet gave this ointment for me. The acne was gone just in 5 days. Clears everything. But this ointment can color the cat's fur. So make sure take a shower or just clean cat's chin after the acne is gone.

    This made a huge difference for my dog! Much improvement from a similar topical of a different brand that my vet was giving me.
