Description

Tresaderm is a combination ear and skin medication prescribed to dogs and cats. This medication contains an antifungal, corticosteroid and a broad-spectrum antibiotic to treat inflammation, as well as bacterial and fungal infections of the ear and skin. This topical solution comes in convenient drop form, making treatment easier for you and your pet.

Uses

Tresaderm is applied directly on the skin or in the ears in order to kill susceptible bacteria, fungus, and yeast. It also helps relieve local inflammation associated with the infection.

Possible Side Effects

Skin irritation and redness at the affected area is possible. If Tresaderm is used on an open wound, it can cause minimal pain for up to 15 minutes. If ingested or used chronically, side effects from the dexamethasone may be noted including increased drinking/urination, vomiting, immune suppression, and weight gain. These side effects can resolve when the dosage is decreased.

Some pets may have an allergic reaction to the ingredients in Tresaderm although this is not common.

Drug & Food Interactions

Interactions are possible with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), other corticosteroids, or gentamicin. Other interactions may occur. Discuss all medications/supplements your pet is taking with your veterinarian prior to giving Tresaderm to make sure it can be given safely.

Precautions

Pets with an allergy to any of ingredients shouldn't use Tresaderm. In dogs birth defects have been reported with the use of corticosteroids. This medication shouldn't be ingested; it's for topical use only. Avoid contact with eyes.

    Recycling nightmare

    By on

    While I recommend the actual product, I will never order this from Chewy again due to the incredible overload of packaging - the worst part being a stryrofoam (you read that right - the material that most places are trying to outlaw due its horrid environmental damaging effects) container the size of a small cooler. I realize this product needs to be refrigerated, but one small ice pack wrapped around it probably would have done the trick. This product had a small ziplock bag around it, then it was wrapped in bubble wrap with 2 ice packs put in yet another ziplock bag inside the styrofoam cooler. Mind you this bottle isn't any bigger than 2 inches long.

But, again, I'll find it elsewhere. … more

    Great product

    By on

    I buy this for my German Shepherd who gets allergy related sores on her paws from nibbling. This medicine works wonderfully well at hastening their healing. Also, since it needs to be refrigerated, Chewy delivers it in a styrofoam cooler with ice packs at no additional charge! Way to go Chewy.

    So glad I can get this through Chewy.

    By on

    This is a necessary product, if you have a cat or dog. My vet's hours, combined with my work hours, make it difficult for me to get this from the vet. So glad that, as always, Chewy is always there for me. I can get this from Chewy whenever I need it.

    Chewy To The Rescue!!

    By on

    My poodle (Quita) is prone to ear infections, and with the stay-at-home order, it made it difficult to get her into the vet. Chewy To The Rescue!! I ordered the medication my wonderful vet had previously prescribed, and Chewy jumped into action. It was delivered SO FAST! The medicine arrived in a cooler with two ice packs--amazing! My sweet Quita was on the mend in no time!

    Works for my boy!

    By on

    First of all, Thank you Chewy for delivering this to our home when we couldn't get to the Vets office because of Lockdown restrictions! When we adopted our boy he had ear infections and Tresaderm was the only thing that worked. He started with another and Chewy delivered well packed with ice packs and in a cooler, again THANK YOU!!!!!

    Review of service, as well as product

    By on

    Tresaderm is Tresaderm: an effective option for my dog's frequent ear infections. However, it has to be refrigerated and requires special shipping considerations. As always, Chewy rose to the occasion: they shipped it on time, kept it refrigerated, and went above and beyond to make sure it got to us efficiently and intact. Thank you so much!
