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.
Drug & Food Interactions
No drug-related contraindications have been reported.
If your pet has an allergy to Baytril, other quinolone antibiotics, and/or sulfonamides, do not give this medication to her. Young dogs who are still growing (up to 24 months) can experience growth abnormalities if Baytril is given. Animals with central nervous system (CNS) disorders, such as epilepsy, should be given Baytril cautiously; discuss risks with your veterinarian if your pet has a CNS disorder. Tell your veterinarian if your pet's eardrum is perforated. The safety in pregnant, lactating or breeding animals is unknown.
