Baytril is an antibacterial solution prescribed by many veterinarians for pets who have an ear infection caused by susceptible bacteria or fungus. It was the first FDA-approved topical solution to treat ear infections in dogs, and it's a water-based emulsion that also helps to soothe infected ears.
Baytril Otic is a liquid emulsion that is used topically directly in the ear or on the skin in order to treat susceptible bacterial and yeast infections.
Possible Side Effects
Most pets experience no problems. However, hearing loss, balance disorders and increased redness of the ear are possible. Other side effects may occur. Call your veterinarian if your pet experiences any problems while receiving Baytril Otic.
