PetMeds® Helping Pets with Chronic Ear Infections
Zymox Otic is one of my favorite nonprescription ear topical medications that works wonderfully for many acute and chronic ear problems in dogs and cats. This product contains natural enzymes that help inhibit bacterial growth often involved in ear infections. Most commonly bacterial ear infections are secondary to underlying allergies in affected pets.
Ear problems are amongst the most frustrating problems to clear up and often recur in many pets. This often leads to production of excessive amount of wax and discharge. It’s important for clients to recognize not to use other prescription topical bacterial products or ear washes, as Zymox Otic is most effective when used alone on such ears. Clients have reported wonderful results when using this product, as I have also seen many chronic ear infections that have pestered dogs for months clear up when using this product.
Unlike some other prescription topical ear medications which can occasionally cause deafness, I have not seen any side effects when using Zymox Otic. For pets with allergies, the Zymox Otic with Hydrocortisone is my preferred choice, as the additional cortisone can help lessen ear inflammation and pain.
