About ZYMOX Enzymes for Healthy Ears and Skin

Antimicrobial and Antifungal Care

ZYMOX empowers pet parents with patented formulations of natural enzymes to help treat chronic infections in dogs, cats and horses. Their products are formulated to be safe to use on any age pet. ZYMOX packs a potent antimicrobial punch that targets the source of infections—bacteria and fungus(including yeast) to provide therapeutic relief, care, protection and prevention, without any antibiotics or harsh chemicals. Proudly made in the USA and endorsed by TICA (The International Cat Association).

Committed to Healthy Ears, Skin and Coat, and Smiles

To ensure overall health from snout to tail on all four-legged pals, Zymox has developed products that are specially formulated for all the areas that commonly need infection relief, like the ears, teeth and gums, and skin and coat.

Ear Care Solutions

Effective, non-toxic solutions with special enzymes and mild cleansers to keep ears clean and fresh, and combat microbes that can cause ear infections.

Oral Care Solutions

Brushless solutions with unique enzymes to dissolve plaque and prevent its buildup, boost natural "good bacteria," and protect against gum disease to keep kitty and doggy smiles healthy.

Skin and Coat Health

Topical sprays and shampoos for dogs, cats and horses that form a powerful protective barrier against minor skin inflammations from bacteria and fungi, while cleaning and conditioning the coat—with some formulas utilizing hydrocortisone.

100% Safe, Gentle and Easy

Because Zymox formulas are made with 100% naturally derived enzymes from dairy, they are safe for anytime use, both for immediate soothing relief and to prevent infections. The powerful enzymes work to eliminate problem single-celled organisms such as bacteria, fungi and yeast, while leaving healthy cells untouched. This means no irritations for your pal!

Enzyme-Based and Antibiotic-Free

Zymox products use a patented, gentle formulation that combines three potent, naturally occurring enzymes—lactoperoxidase, lysozyme and lactoferrin—that are sourced from milk products. These enzymes are proven to work together to eliminate the source of infection on your pet, without any toxins or antibiotics that can irritate or cause antibiotic resistance.


Zymox was founded in 1998 by Pamela Bosco, who sought to change the way that people treated and managed ear, oral and skin infections with a safer alternative to antibiotics. Enlisting the help of her brother—a scientist that developed the enzyme technology in Biotene—Bosco formulated a powerful enzyme-based solution to help treat infections in dogs, cats and horses with no toxins, chemicals or antibiotics. Committed to keeping all four-legged pals healthy, they offer USA-made and sourced products to treat, soothe and protect against bacterial and fungal infections gently and 100% naturally.

Works Well

I purchased this product when I was running low on a different cleanser that my vet had recommended. That product had a horrible smell and my cat despised having her ears cleaned with it. Really never felt like I was removing any goop either. The Zymox does a very good job removing all the gunk and I really do not notice a smell with it. My cat will actually hold still and let me use this. Highly recommend.

Leaking bottle

The product arrived in a plastic bag, the lid of the bottle was loose and half the cleanser had leaked into the bag. How do I return/exchange this item?

keeps ears clean when used regularly

Been using this for a few years on my dog. It keeps her ears nice and clean as a preventative for ear issues. She isn’t a fan of having them cleaned (what dog is!) but it doesn’t cause her pain. If you have ever had your ears irrigated it is an odd feeling. I assume this feels similar.
