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.
I was highly satisfied with this product. It seemed expensive, but I wanted to avoid a trip to the vet if at all possible. My dog's ear was bothering her, and was red and irritated inside. We began using this and saw results within a day. We used it for the full seven days, as indicated in the directions, and it definitely worked. I would say based on prior experience, ear infections in pets can easily become chronic--be sure to use this for at least 7 days as the directions state. Although the container is small, it doesn't take much and the small container will probably last years.

We have a 6 year old Weimaraner. This guy has so many issues. He has 2 vets. His right ear was a mess. He did a course of antibiotic ear drops. Helped a little. Then I tried this. It worked great. Because of other issues he has a weekly bath with baby shampoo. I plug his ears with cotton. Today I went to wipe out his ears. Right one was starting to get get yucky. Fill his ear with these drops. 7 days is all it takes. He even lays down so I can put them in his ear. Great product. I now keep a bottle in the house for him.
This product really works!

Was skeptical to get this but i was a bit desperate as my dog ears were bad. They were red and my poor dog would shake his head from the irritation. Vet couldn't get him in soon enough so I bought this and within 2-3 days his ears were waayyy better. Did the full 7 days as directed and his ears are back to healthy looking ears. Already recommended them to my sister in law as her poodle always has ear infections.

I have struggled for years trying to keep my Bassett hound's ears clean and free of irritation. I have tried prescriptions, natural remedies and OTC treatments. Some of them, like the ear wipes, actually seem to be painful for her and some even made the problem worse. This product has worked the best and does not cause any discomfort. Chewy delivered my product promptly and we had immediate results. The only drawback is that when I skip a day or two, the problem comes back.

I adopted a cocker spaniel with a severe ear infection and scarred eardrums/cobblestone appearance inside ear. My dog was very prone to recurrent ear infections. The Vet would clear them with antibiotics but then the dog would get another one. So, after antibiotics cleared the last infection the Vet directed me to use this Zymox prophylactically. It works! No ear infections in months. Love it!
Nothing works better!

At the start of Covid our groomer was forced to close temporarily and we were wrestling our strong young Lab into the tub for baths. It was a disaster and after 2 months he developed what seemed to be a double ear infection (the groomer is a pro, I am a novice and I'm sure we inadvertently got water in his ears). One morning the head-shaking started. One ear had a very wet water-sloshing sound, the other ear made no sound but he was digging at both. Due to Covid protocols at the vet that were very stressful I decided to do some heavy research and purchased this Zymox product. I love that it's thick, like a gel, so you can really get the drop(s) down into the ear and massage it in before he shakesAt the start of Covid our groomer was forced to close temporarily and we were wrestling our strong young Lab into the tub for baths.

I love that it's thick, like a gel, so you can really get the drop(s) down into the ear and massage it in before he shakes. A much better coating in the ear. As the days went on, we did Zymox in the morning and some general wiping out before dinner. I was half horrified, half amazed, at what came out of each ear. The sloshing-sound ear had that yeasty brown mush; the other ear had legitimate hard chunks of ear wax. We kept on with the Zymox drops each morning. After 3 days he stopped digging and head-shaking. The sloshing sound went away. We continued for the full 7 days and on our last wipe-out of each ear, there was no yeast smell, no wetness, no pieces of wax. The cotton rounds we use came out perfectly white. This saved us a stressful and expensive vet trip, and more importantly it got my boy back on course and relieved his serious discomfort. I'm so happy to have this on-hand in case we have any problems in the future and I recommend it to many people. Hope this review helps.… more

My floppy eared dog has had several ear infections. The vet has tried several products but I never felt they completely get rid of it. In frustration I purchased this in hopes to relieve her scratching of her ear. After only a few applications it totally worked but I continued to use it for the recommended 7 days. No more scratching...her ear has no smell to it. I am so happy and so is she! And it saved a bundle from a vet visit. I know she may get another ear infection because of her floppy ears but now I have a great product that works! Thank you!

I have a Labrador with chronic ear infections and the medication my vet gave me was double the price of this and it didn’t seem to really be helping him much so I decided to find a different solution without the giant pet bill and came across this... it relieved his ear infection up after a few days I plan to keep this on hand for my dogs from now on HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I rarely write reviews, but this deserved one. I have a German shepherd who struggles with horrible ear yeast infections. Nothing will bring him relief except a vet visit (which will often be accompanied by a $150+ bill)..
I bought this as a temporary fix while we were waiting to get in. I doubted that it would work and kept my expectations low. After just 2 days my guy was so much better. The whining stopped, he wasn’t shaking his head every five minutes, and the infection subsided substantially! We are now on day 5 and there is no sign of any infection.
My dog and I thank you! I will definitely be keeping this stocked in my household.
Makes a mess!

I purchased based off of all the glowing reviews! I was disappointed to find it didn’t work that great and leaves behind a greasy residue. My dog has long ears. I only used a little and even tried to wipe out her ears and they were still a mess! Yuck! I’ll go back to her previous wash,Virbac it works much better.
