EnteDerm is a topical ointment prescribed by veterinarians to help treat pets with bacterial infections or yeast infections found in the ears. This medication is gentle and readily accepted by most pets, relieving stress for you both.
This medication is particularly useful in the treatment of acute and chronic otitis of varied causes, in pets with lesions located on their paws, and in anal gland infections. The preparation is also indicated in the management of dermatologic disorders characterized by inflammation and dry or discharge dermatitis, particularly those caused, complicated or threatened by bacterial or candidal (Candida albicans) infections. It is also of value in other types of dermatitis and as an adjunct in the treatment of dermatitis due to parasitic infestation.
