Description

Derma-Vet Ointment is a prescription medication formulated to help treat cutaneous disorders in dogs and cats, including medical conditions that affect the skin, hair, nails and related muscles and glands. This ointment is especially useful for disorders caused or affected by bacterial and yeast infections. It’s crafted with a powerful blend of four ingredients—nystatin, an antifungal; neomycin sulfate, an antibiotic; thiostrepton, an antibacterial; and triamcinolone acetonide to help reduce itching. Derm-Vet Ointment is available in multiple sizes and comes in a tube with a long tip for easy administration, so you can help your pet get the relief she needs.

Uses

Nystatin, neomycin sulfate, thiostrepton and triamcinolone acetonide ointment is particularly useful in the treatment of acute and chronic otitis of varied etiologies, in interdigital cysts in cats and dogs, and in anal gland infections in dogs. The preparation is also indicated in the management of dermatologic disorders characterized by inflammation and dry or exudative dermatitis, particularly those caused, complicated, or threatened by bacterial or candidal (Candida albicans) infections. It is also of value in eczematous dermatitis; contact dermatitis and seborrheic dermatitis; and as an adjunct in the treatment of dermatitis due to parasitic infestation.

Possible Side Effects

SAP and SGPT (ALT) enzyme elevations, polydipsia/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. Temporary hearing loss has been reported in conjunction with treatment of otitis with products containing corticosteroids. However, regression usually occurred following withdrawal of the drug. If hearing dysfunction is noted during the course of treatment with nystatin, neomycin sulfate, thiostrepton and triamcinolone acetonide ointment, discontinue its use.

Drug & Food Interactions

Talk to your veterinarian about any other drugs your pet is taking before starting this medication.

Precautions

Before instilling any medication into the ear, examine the external ear canal thoroughly to be certain the tympanic membrane is not ruptured in order to avoid the possibility of transmitting infection to the middle ear as well as damaging the cochlea or vestibular apparatus from prolonged contact. If hearing or vestibular dysfunction is noted during the course of treatment, discontinue the use of nystatin, neomycin sulfate, thiostrepton and triamcinolone acetonide ointment.

    Makes Redbone's ears all better

    By on

    The 240 ml bottle is great! Our vet only has the metal tubes and they are difficult to use and develop leaks, plus the product oozes out afterwards while sitting upright before I can get the lid back on. They should only sell this ointment in a plastic bottle. Very happy his ears are all better.

This is the first topical ointment that has worked! This worked great on her chin and also a yeasty infection in the folds of her neck. I will definitely buy this again!!

    Amazing product

    By on

    I am the proud owner of a 10 yr old bulldog who has horrible allergies. Every few months he experiences hot spots and this has been the only product that stops them from spreading. It also clears them up very quickly as long as I apply the product when I first notice him itching. He gets the hot spots the worst on his face, particularly in his facial folds, and I am always careful not to get it in his eyes. I have tried countless products over the years, and this is by far the absolute best.

    Not just any ointment

    By on

    This ointment, originally given to me by my vet for my dog is the most effective antibiotic ointment I have ever used on him. Not your normal triple antibiotic ointment either, which I have used many. The ingredients in it are powerful. If your dog has an area that gets very irritated and almost infected or, that opens from chaffing and bleeds lightly, this stops the oozing the same night, definitely by next morning and begins to heal. I told my vet how good this ointment is and he is aware, he only uses the best. I thank God Chewy carries it so I can order it readily with one day turnaround time instead of my vet having to order it which takes a few days to come in and then delivery to This ointment, originally given to me by my vet for my dog is the most effective antibiotic ointment I have ever used on him.
