    Generic Name:Gentamicin and betamethasone with clotrimazole

    Common Brand Name:Otomax

    Dose and Administration: Instill Otomax in your pet’s ear(s) exactly as instructed by your veterinarian. Ear(s) should be clean and dry and excess hair around the ear(s) should be trimmed prior to application. Instill the proper amount of ointment in the ear(s) and massage the ear(s) in order to spread Otomax throughout the ear. Give a dose as soon as you remember if one is missed but never double dose. Give Otomax only to the pet it has been prescribed for.

    Uses:Otomax is used to treat otitis (ear infections).

    Storage:Store at room temperature out of reach from pets and children.

    Possible Side Effects: Some pets may experience hearing loss or balance problems while using Otomax but it is usually temporary. Otomax contains a corticosteroid so increased drinking and urination may occur if it is ingested in large quantities. Some pets are truly allergic to Otomax. Immune suppression is possible if Otomax is used for extended periods which may increase the risk of bacterial and fungal infections. Other side effects may occur. Tell your veterinarian immediately if your pet seems sick while Otomax is being given.

    Precautions:Animals who are allergic to any ingredients in Otomax should not use it. Animals with a ruptured ear drum should be given Otomax. Working dogs such as police dogs and seeing eye dogs should only be given Otomax with extreme caution since hearing or vestibular (balance) impairment is possible. Premature births have been reported when Otomax was given especially towards the end of pregnancy. Birth defects are possible in dogs, rabbits, and rodents so using Otomax in pregnant females is not recommended.

    Drug and Food Interactions: Always speak to your veterinarian about any other medications or supplements your pet is taking prior to starting Otomax. Interactions are possible with corticosteroids and similar antibiotics such as neomycin. Other drug interactions may occur.

    A prescription from your veterinarian is required to purchase Otomax.

      Comments about Otomax Ointment For Dogs:

      Vet recommended this product for my Min Pin that had been rubbing her head on the carpet. After the initial week long treatment and then the twice a week maintenance my Min Pin seems to be rubbing her head less. I going to have to check back with the vet to see if perhaps 3 times a week as maintenance would produce better results. All in all my Min Pin seems revealed when she gets this med administered.
