What is Animax?

Animax, a generic for Panalog, is a combination antimicrobial, antifungal, and corticosteroid used in the treatment of skin disorders characterized by inflammation and dry or exudative dermatitis caused by bacterial or candidal infections. It is also used in the treatment of eczema, seborrhea, and contact dermatitis. Animax requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is available as either a cream or ointment.
Animax Ointment
 
For: Cats and Dogs
 
Benefits:
Effectively treats a wide array of skin conditions
Animax is the generic for Panolog
Addresses four basic, but important, therapeutic needs: anti-inflammatory, antipruritic (anti-itch), antifungal and antibacterial
Easy to apply to ears or skin

How it works:
Animax contains key ingredients Nystatin, Neomycin Sulfate, Thiostrepton and Triamcinolone Acetonide. Triamcinolone Acetonide is a corticosteroid which provides quick symptomatic relief when applied topically. Nystatin is an antifungal antibiotic which helps with the treatment of skin infections caused by Candida albicans, a type of skin fungus. Neomycin sulfate works as an antimicrobial agent against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. Thiostrepton is an antibiotic which can fight against gram-positive organisms, including most which are resistant to other antibiotics. When combined, these ingredients help to prevent bacterial infections caused by certain organisms.

Cautions:
There are possible side effects and adverse interactions with other drugs. Be sure to tell your veterinarian what other medications your pet is currently using. Do not use in the eyes.

What is the most important information I should know about Animax: Animax is a prescription medicine FDA-approved for veterinary use in dogs and cats. Animax is available as an ointment in 15ml tubes. Each ml of ointment contains 100,000 units Nystatin, neomycin sulfate equivalent to 2.5mg of neomycin, 2,500 units thiostrepton and 1mg triamcinolone acetonide. Prior to use the affected area should be cleaned. Animax is for use topically on the skin. Do not use in the eyes.

What is Animax: Animax, a generic for Panalog, is a combination antimicrobial and corticosteroid used on cats and dogs in the management of skin disorders characterized by inflammation or dry exudative dermatitis particularly those caused by bacterial or candidal infections. Animax is also used in the treatment of eczema, seborrhea, and contact dermatitis and as an adjunct in the treatment of dermatitis due to parasite infestation. Animax may also be used for purposes other than those listed.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Animax to my pet: Do not use Animax if the pet is allergic to any of the individual ingredients. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be used: Use this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. The administration of Animax depends on the severity of the condition. Application may range from once a day to once a week for mild conditions or up to 2-3 times a day for severe conditions.

What happens if I miss giving a dose: Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and apply the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet: An overdose of this medication is unlikely. If an overdose is suspected, seek emergency veterinary medical treatment.

What should I avoid while using Animax on my pet: Do not use this medication in pets allergic to it or any of the individual ingredients. Discontinue use of this medication and contact your veterinarian if hearing loss is noted during treatment.

What are the possible side effects of Animax: Side effects associated with this medication are related to the individual ingredients. Side effects following the use of injected or oral corticosteroids include increased thirst and urination, vomiting, diarrhea, and Cushing's syndrome following prolonged or repeated steroid therapy. Discontinue use and contact your veterinarian if sensitivity to neomycin, which may cause redness, irritation, and swelling occurs. Continue the medication and talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What other drugs will affect Animax: Before using Animax, tell your veterinarian if your pet is using other antibiotic, antifungal or corticosteroid medications either topically or by mouth. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over-the-counter medicines.

Animax Review The combination of topical antimicrobial and anti inflammatory agents in this medicine, including nystatin for fungi and yeast, neomycin for a wide variety of bacteria, and triamcinolone for its potent topical anti inflammatory effect, make a wonderful mix of ingredients for so many skin and ear conditions seen in every practice. I have found this particular brand quite useful for many types of mixed ear infections, where both bacteria and yeast are involved. Given that these problems are often secondary to underlying allergies including inhalent/contact allergies and food allergies, the inclusion of triamcinolone helps tremendously with the components of redness, pain and inflammation often associated with these ear conditions. I only rarely have to go to stronger topical prescription ear medicines than this, in which case I will culture the ears to see specifically what is growing in the ear canals, if no initial response to this wonderful topical combination medicine. Because of these properties, this product is also wonderful for topical application to local areas of "hot spots" or allergic dermatitis on the skin of pets, in truly acclerating healing of these painful lesions. Many people often dont realize that nystatin also can help with local yeast or ringworm lesions as well on the skin. I much prefer this product to some of the expensive alternatives with very similar or identical ingredients, as animax is often significantly cheaper for my clients. The only rare side effects I have seen include occasional allergic topical reactions, and even more rare absorption of the product through damaged ear drums leading to increased signs of thirst/urination and appetite because of the triamcinolone part of this product. However I have only seen this very rare effect with months of continuous use in situations like that. I give this product an overall rating of 4.5; with an effectiveness of 4.5 as well, and an ease of use of a 5. 09/08/2008
Great product I have a sheltie who gets really dry ears when the whether is either really cold or really hot (I know, odd). This stuff works fast and prevents my dog from having the itchies non-stop. It is a little greasy, so if your dog likes to rub against furniture, I would be careful until it soaks into the ear or the area you are using it on. 08/02/2013
Pugs I have two 8 yr old pugs. My female developed allergies this year for the first time. She was scratching all over her body and her ears became inflamed, too. My vet prescribed Animax ointment to be applied to both ears twice daily. This stuff took care of the inflamation within 12 hours! Within 24 hours there were no obvious signs of infection. I then tried it on my male pug once a week because he has really gunky ears and the ointment seems to break it up a little and makes it easier to clean his ears. After reading other peoples reviews, I will now try using in on my female's hot spots whenever her allergies are a problem. 11/10/2012
Not sure My cat was given this and oral antibiotics for a open wound caused by either fleas or something else. His wound was getting better but he keeps pulling the scab off and forget him wearing one of those collars. i keep putting the topical on it and pray alot for him! The wound is about 1/2 inch wide and round. He is 13. He had another wound that healed on its own. 2 of my cats suffered with burrowing mites of all things and cured them with coconut oil and then one of my cats got this wound! grrrr.. 11/04/2012
Feline acne My domestic short hair has a very bad case of feline acne which is out of control. I tried Aminax ointment, and the acne has been about eight five percent eradicated. We then added Molecula Silver to the treatment of the acne, and now see a ninety eight percent improvement. We are very pleased with both products. 11/06/2011

Can animax be used to treat irritation from topical flea medication such as Revolution?

Answer: 
It would be better to use a skin relief product like TEA TREE OIL SKIN RELIEF or EXCEL HYDROCORTISONE SPRAY. The animax would not be appropriate here because it has
added active ingredients that treat fungal infections which dont apply here. Have you mentioned
this irritation to your vet ?

Answer: 
I am not a vet, but I had a similar question. My dog scratches at his ears a lot and sometime there are little cuts from the scratching. My vet told me that as long as it's not a "wound" or a scratch that you would be concerned about, it is okay. However, I do not know your animal's condition, so you might want to check with your vet! :]
