How does this medication work?

Posatex Otic Suspension contains anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties to treat otitis externa, which is inflammation in the ear canal due to yeast and bacteria. Dogs with floppy ears tend to more susceptible to otitis externa since there is a limited amount of air-flow to the ear which creates a moist dark environment where bacteria and yeast thrive. Posatex Otic Suspension works by combining a broad spectrum antibiotic called Orbifloxacin, a potent anti-inflammatory agent called Mometasone Furoate Monohydrate and Novel triazole, an antifungal new to animal health.

    Pharmacy impacts to my dog

    By on

    I mailed the original Rx, which I thought was Chewy’s policy for prescriptions. It took a full 2 weeks to receive the medicine. Two weeks is just too long. I won’t do that again.

    Best for chronic ears

    The dermatologist prescribed this for my dog's ears after a half a dozen years of chronic ear infections. She gets this once a week now and she has not had any ear infections for over a year.
