What is Baytril Otic?

Baytril Otic is used to treat outer ear infections in dogs. Unlike oil or petroleum-based products, Baytril Otic is water-based which helps to sooth inflamed ears. Baytril requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
 Baytril Otic
For: Dogs
First topical solution approved by the FDA for canine otitis externa
Water-based emulsion soothes infected ears
Two powerful ingredients (enrofloxacin and silver sulfadiazine) kill bacteria and fungus

How it works:
Baytril Otic works to treat ear infections with the use of two ingredients enrofloxacin and silver sulfadiazine. Enrofloxacin has quick bacteria-killing properties and silver sulfadiazine is an ingredient which kills fungal microogranisms most commonly associated with canine otitis externa (ear infections).

The safe use of Baytril Otic in dogs for breeding purposes, during pregnancy, or in lactating bitches, has not been evaluated.

More Information:
Brand Name
Baytril Otic (Bayer)
Generic Name
enrofloxacin and silver sulfadiazine
What is the most important information I should know about Baytril Otic: Baytril Otic is a prescription medication FDA approved for veterinary use in dogs and cats. The usual dose of Baytril Otic (based on pet¿s weight) is 5-15 drops in the ear 2 times a day for up to 14 days. Thoroughly clean and dry the ear before treatment. Shake well before use. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. Do not use Baytril Otic in any pet other than the pet for whom it was prescribed. Baytril Otic is not for use in animals allergic to it or other floroquinolone antibiotic drugs or sulfonamides.

What is Baytril Otic: Baytril Otic is a floroquinolone antibiotic used for the treatment of bacterial infections of the ear due to organisms susceptible to enrofloxacin or silver sulfadiazine. This medication may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Baytril Otic to my pet:
Tell your veterinarian if your pet has had seizures or if the pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be given: Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Give all of the medication your veterinarian has prescribed.

Store Baytril Otic between 40-77°F. Store in an upright position. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

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

What happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose may include loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, hearing loss, loss of balance or increased redness of the ear.

What should I avoid while giving Baytril Otic to my pet: Do not use Baytril Otic in animals allergic to it or other floroquinolone antibiotics and/or sulfonamides. Use caution when using Baytril Otic Otic in animals with a punctured ear drum.

What are the possible side effects of Baytril Otic: Increased redness of the ear, hearing loss, or loss of balance may occur. Side effects other than those listed may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the pet.

What other drugs will affect Baytril Otic: Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medications.

This product is working. Our vet recommended this product because of the severe ear infection that Bella had. They did not carry it at their veterinary service. While Bella definitely does not like have her ears "invaded", she is truly doing better. The vet has recommended that we bring her back for a check-up before we run out of medicine, which we plan to do. 03/16/2015
This was a waste of money Not only did my dog fuss and fight me to put the drops in her ears...but they did not seem to work at ll 03/25/2013
Malassezia and Pseudomonas My new foster poodle had a yeast (Malassezia) and Pseudomonas ear infection (both ears). The vet took a sample from the ear and viewed it under the microscope. The combination of enrofloxacin and silver sulferdiazine is currently the best way to wipe out the Pseudomonas. I did have to fill the ear canals to make sure the med got deep into the ear. Because there is no steroid in this, I was not worried about an overdose-- the higher the local concentration of the enrofloxacin, the better for the Pseudomonas. Silver sulfadiazine fights the yeast. Fantastic product. Look up the scientific research online before taking the anecdotal advice of the negative reviews. If your dog has a Pseudomonas ear infection, use a lot of medication for an extended period of time because you must wipe out all of the colonies in the ear, 100% or your dog will end up with resistant bacteria and possibly long term problems and loss of hearing. 01/29/2013
Effective for my dog, so far! I did take my dog to the veterinarian, who gave me the 15 mL bottle. I have been using it on her ear for 3 days so far, and it is clearing up nicely! She was absolutely miserable, but I can see that she is doing so much better already! I read the other reviews and it is apparent that this product is not for every pet, so PLEASE, for the sake of your pet, take them to the vet first! 01/12/2013
like using water I have two Cooker Spaniels. They are prone to ear infections. I have used Panalog, Otomax, Baytril. \Baytril was like using water. It did absolutely nothing! That office visit cost me $527.00, office visit, exam, ear cleaning & the Baytril. I am tired of these out of line fees at the vets. If we don't start complaining about there charges they will continue to go up. Taking two kids to the doctor never cost this much for ear infections. This has got to stop! ALL VETS ARE OUT OF LINE ON THEIR FEES!! 09/02/2012

Answer this question


Baytril Otic should be used with caution in the presence of a perforated ear drum. The decision to use this is between you and your veterinarian weighing the benefits versus the risk.
