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.


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.


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.

  • Great for more than ears

    By on

    My dog suffers from many allergies and her ears and feet are affected badly. I use Otomax on her feet to clear up the blisters she gets from her allergies. I rub it in the bottom of her paws and put baby socks on her so it has time to soak in and she can’t lick it off. It also will clear her ears up within two days. My Vet recommends it for both. It has cortisone that helps heal her feet.

    I am grateful I was able to buy Otomax at Chewey for my dog's (yeast) ear infection, and the staff was helpful in keeping me up-to-date on the status of my order. I wish, however, that it was possible to scan or fax prescriptions to the Chewey Pharmacy as it took eleven days between the time the vet wrote the prescription and the product's delivery. (My vet claims this is a product he can no longer acquire, and as it is more effective than Tresaderm, the infection was still active when the Otomax arrived.)
