Description

Otomax is an ointment prescribed by your vet to treat your canine companions' acute or chronic ear infection. It's a combination of a steroid, antibacterial and antifungal ear medication, and it may be effective against both bacterial and yeast infections of the ear as well as inflammation. This tube comes with a convenient applicator for easy administration.

Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.

Uses

Otomax ointment is indicated for the treatment of acute and chronic ear infections.

Possible Side Effects

Please contact your veterinarian if the following adverse reactions occur: hearing loss or balance problems, increased drinking and urination, topical or systemic allergic reaction or bacterial and fungal infections.

Drug & Food Interactions

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

Precautions

If overgrowth of non-susceptible bacteria, fungi, or yeasts occur, or if hypersensitivity develops, treatment should be discontinued, and appropriate therapy instituted. Administration of recommended doses beyond seven days may result in delayed wound healing. Avoid ingestion. Before instilling any medication into the ear, examine the external ear canal thoroughly to be certain the ear is not ruptured in order to avoid the possibility of transmitting an infection to the middle ear, as well as damaging the ear from prolonged contact.

This item is excluded from the first-time Autoship promotion.

    Excellent Product

    By Dallas on Dec 1, 2021

    Our dog has chronic ear infections brought on by extreme allergies. We got this product from our vet and his red sore ears cleared right up within days of using, and he has stopped scratching them. Now when he has a flare up I start using this and within a couple days his ears are healthy again. Easy to use as I put a dab in his ear and spread it with my finger. Beats shooting cold liquid in his ears!

    Did not work for my dog

    By Bdog on Jan 21, 2022

    I used the medicine faithfully and cleaned his ear every other day as well and it did not work for him. He may have something this medicine was not made to clear up.

    Ottomax Ointment

    By PugMom on Oct 14, 2021

    This product is great for dog's ear infections. My pug's right ear was red, sore, warm and infected. After using Otomax as prescribed for several days and cleaning the ear twice daily, the infection cleared up.
