What is Otomax?

Otomax requires a prescription from your veterinarian. Otomax is indicated for the treatment of acute and chronic otitis externa associated with yeast (Malassezia pachydermatis) and/or bacteria susceptible to gentamicin in dogs. Otomax is a combination of antimicrobial, corticosteroid and antifungal drugs as active ingredients.

For:

Dogs

Features & Benefits:

  • Gentamicin is an antibiotic with broad spectrum activity.
  • Betamethasone is a highly effective and safe corticosteroid that reduces inflammation
  • Clotrimazole is an antifungal proven effective for the most common ear yeast isolate- Malassezia pachydermatis
  • Easy to administer - as has the consistency of a solution which prolongs the contact time of an ointment.
  • Used to treat bacterial infections of the outer ear in dogs

How it works:

Since it has three active ingredients Gentamicin, Betamethasone, and Clotrimazole, Otomax ointment provides antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal activity to fight infections of the outer ear along with the inflammation.

Cautions:

Tell your veterinarian everything you are giving to your dog. Otomax might have negative drug interactions with other products. Do not use Otomax if your dog has a viral or fungal infection. Also, inform your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

Side effects of Otomax:

Side effects with this medication are related to the individual ingredients.

Side effects such as weight loss, loss of appetite, increased thirst and urination and vomiting and diarrhea may occur, following the use of injected or oral corticosteroids. Betamethasone is a corticosteroid but in this drug it is applied topically. Talk to your veterinarian in case you seek any of the above.
