Description

If your dog develops an ear infection, your vet may prescribe Mometavet Otic Suspension for Dogs to help get him feeling better again. This liquid steroid, antibacterial and antifungal medication is designed to treat otitis externa, an infection of your dog’s ear canal. This medication works by targeting the strains of yeast and bacteria that cause the infection, helping to relieve the cause of your dog’s discomfort.

Uses

Gentamicin Sulfate, USP; Mometasone Furoate Anhydrous; and Clotrimazole, USP, Otic Suspension is indicated for the treatment of otitis externa in dogs caused by susceptible strains of yeast (Malassezia pachydermatis) and bacteria (Pseudomonas spp. [including P. aeruginosa], coagulasepositive staphylococci, Enterococcus faecalis, Proteus mirabilis, and beta-hemolytic streptococci).

Possible Side Effects

No serious side effects have been reported.

Drug & Food Interactions

If hypersensitivity to any of the components occurs, treatment should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted. Concomitant use of drugs known to induce ototoxicity should be avoided. Do not use in dogs with known perforation of eardrums.

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. Administration of recommended doses of Gentamicin Sulfate, USP; Mometasone Furoate Anhydrous; and Clotrimazole, USP, Otic Suspension beyond 7 days may result in delayed wound healing. If overgrowth of non-susceptible bacteria or fungi occurs, treatment should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted. Avoid ingestion. Adverse systemic reactions have been observed following the oral ingestion of some topical corticosteroid preparations. Patients should be closely observed for the usual signs of adrenocorticoid overdosage which include sodium retention, potassium loss, fluid retention, weight gain, polydipsia, and/or polyuria. Prolonged use or overdosage may produce adverse immunosuppressive effects. Use of corticosteroids, depending on dose, duration, and specific steroid, may result in endogenous steroid production inhibition following drug withdrawal. In patients presently receiving or recently withdrawn from corticosteroid treatments, therapy with a rapidly acting corticosteroid should be considered in especially stressful situations.
