What is Epi-Otic Advanced Ear Cleanser?

Epi-Otic Advanced Ear Cleanser is a non-irritating ear cleanser containing anti-adhesive properties that prevent buildup of bacteria and yeast. Epi Otic Ear Cleanser is used for the cleansing of the ear canal for pets with severe otitis externa (ear infection).


Dogs and Cats

  • Antiseptic and keratolytic (helps soften and peel the outer most layer of the skin, which is where bacteria and yeast thrives)
  • Non-irritating
  • Contains neutral pH
  • Patented anti-odor technology
  • Can be used with ear medications
  • 8 oz bottle with twist-close dropper top
How it Works:

The anti-adhesive technology in Epi-Otic Advanced Ear Cleanser uses glycotechnology that prevents pseudomonas bacteria from attaching to the skin surface. This process helps eliminate bacteria and yeast buildup and may prevent irritation. Epi Otic Ear Cleaner also includes anti-odor technology comprised of aldehyde complex which helps eliminate odors.

Epi-Otic Advanced Ear Cleanser is rated 4.729508196721311 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only brand I trust! I've got a Basset Hound so cleaning her ears isn't a every now and again thing. It's part of a weekly routine if you can picture long 14 inch ears that drag in the dirt, in a humid state and hardly gets any air. So, yes, yucky!! Epi-Otic from Virbac is the only brand I'll ever use as my dog is also prone to skin conditions and has a various amount of allergies. This is so gentle that the ears never get inflamed like they use to with other products even "all natural" products would irritate! Since using this, ears stay cleaner longer and no irritation. I've been using this for years and I'll be purchasing Epi-Otic as long as it stays readily available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy to have found this!! I am the mother of a 5 year old Japanese Chin whom has had chronic ear infections from birth. With the use of Epi-Otic 2 - 3 times / week, he has not had an ear infection once. He does require frequent use, however, if he does get one, I am able to treat it with the use of Epi Otic ear treatment. Within 2 days, his pain and shaking of his head is totally gone. Thank God I found this. My baby is a much happier pup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean Ears I recently purchased this product and have been using it on two cats that both have issues with wax build up in their ears. I've been cleaning their ears weekly and have been finding next to no build up or completely clean ears. This product is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST EAR CLEANER ON THE MARKET I love the Epi-Otic Advanced Ear Cleaner. My little girl's ears, sometimes, bother her to the point that she is scratching her ears, with her paws, trying to gain some relief, due to the wax build-up, and other little debris, inside her ear canals. Just the other day, she was trying, so hard, to itch her one ear, so I got the Epi-Otic Ear Cleaner, sat her down, next to me, and cleaned her ears. When I completed the process, I could tell she felt, so much, better, and her ears stopped itching. The cotton balls, I used, to clean her ears, with the ear cleaner, had collected some wax, which is why her ears were causing her so much discomfort. Each time, after using the Epi-Otic Ear Cleaner, I find that her ears smell good, too. They smell clean, and refreshing, which is an "extra" benefit, and bonus, to using this, particular, ear cleaner. I will say that my little one does NOT really enjoy the process of me cleaning her ears, as her ears are a very sensitive area, but I just try to be gentle, and quick, so that she can benefit from the results of getting clean ears. I use this product, as needed, usually, 1 - 2 times, each week, but for someone else's pet(s), the "as needed" basis might be a bit different than how often I use it. Whether you are trying to find a good ear cleaner, for your pet, for the first time, or whether you've used several ear cleaners, and you are wondering if Epi-Otic will work for you, please try it, and, hopefully, you will find it to be a perfect ear cleaner for your pet, just as I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a cocker spaniel and he always gets smelly, itchy ears. Especially during the summer months. I have been using this product for several years and it is the only one that actually works! Don't waste your money on other products. Customer service is fantastic! I ordered it and it arrived 2 days later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ear Cleanser Our Lhasa Apso has had chronic yeast infections for over 14 years. This ear cleanser works the best of any other we've used, which means less digging and head shaking due to otitis and treating with expensive enzymatics. I've been doing business with Pet Meds for many years and am always satisfied with their customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! I'm very particular when it comes to cleaning my dogs long floppy ears. Most ear cleansing products contain alcohol which stings like fire. No wonder dogs hate the procedure! Epi-otic is the answer to prayer!! It's soothing and does the job. Start your pup on this and ear cleansing will be a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epiotic Advanced Epiotic Advanced is the only ear cleaner that we have found that when used regularly (we use weekly) prevents future ear infections. Prior to using Epiotic Advanced, we were battling frequent yeast infections in our Poodles ears. Once we started using Epiotic Advanced every week, the ear infections stopped. 3+ years infection free!! Thank You Epiotic Advanced!!

Is this ear cleaner a liquid or a gel?

Asked by: MKS
The cleaner is a liquid in a twist top bottle. It comes out fast, but, I wouldn't worry about how much you get in the ear.

Does epiotic prevent ear infections?

My dog get them a lot just naturally the vet said. Her ears got wet yesterday will the epiotic help prevent them from getting an infection when she gets water in her ears?
Asked by: Nikniki
My lab mix gets ear infections constantly, especially after bathing him. Which is caused by yeast. Yeast thrives on moist, warm conditions, making the ear the perfect place for yeast growth. This won't totally prevent an ear infection, because it doesn't contain an antibiotic, but it greatly reduces the chances and protects the ear. I use this before and after I bathe him, every time, because the solution dries the water that can get inside the dogs ear from bathing or swimming. Which in turn, causes yeast infections. My labs ears are much healthier looking and he hasn't had ear infections as frequently as he did in the past. Plus it takes away that horrible smell the accompanies ear infections. I won't bathe him without using this first.

I brought some heart worm medication from pet meds last year - do I need another prescription to order his heart worm meds this year?

Asked by: don't have a nickname
Prescription are only valid for 1 year from the date they were written, so you will need a new prescription in order to get his heartworm medication this year.
