Description

Gentamicin Sulfate with Betamethasone Valerate Otic Solution is an antibiotic drop prescribed for the treatment of ear infections caused by bacteria. The antibiotic in this solution, gentamicin, works to destroy bacteria while the included corticosteroid works to decrease the chance of swelling. Customers may receive this drug under the names Gentocin, Genoptic, Gentak, GenOne.

Uses

Used for the treatment of acute and chronic canine ear infections and canine and feline superficial infected lesions caused by bacteria.

Possible Side Effects

Side effects like enzyme elevations, weight loss, anorexia, polydipsia, and polyuria have occurred. Vomiting and diarrhea have been observed in dogs and cats. Cushing's Syndrome in dogs has been reported in association with prolonged or repeated steroid therapy.

Drug & Food Interactions

Do not administer other steroid hormones during treatment with this medication. Do not use in combination with other aminoglycosides, such as neomycin. Notify your veterinarian of any other medications, including vitamins and supplements, your pet is taking while your pet is receiving gentamicin.

Precautions

Before putting any medication into your pet's ear ear, examine the external ear canal thoroughly to be certain the tympanic membrane is not ruptured—this can cause the infection to spread to the inner ear, or damage the cochlea. If hearing or dizziness or lack of coordination due to inner ear damage is noted during treatment, discontinue use. Do not use in animals with known allergies to any of the ingredients. Prevent ingestion of the medication.

    Pharmacy Issues

    By on

    This is the second time I have had issues with Chewy pharmacy... I get the point that they need approval from the vet for prescriptions but it took us almost two weeks and a countless number of phone calls to get some coordination between the two. They tell ya that you and your pet are very important to them but I really don't think the pharmacy gives a d a m n. The other services have been great for providing food, treats, etc, but the pharmacy is terrible. Will be looking elsewhere my pharmaceutical needs for my pet.
