It is available in 15 gm plastic dropper bottles. Use this medication for the full amount of time prescribed by your veterinarian, even if the pet appears to be better. Symptoms may improve before the infection is completely healed. Shake well before use. The usual dose for dogs weighing less than 30 lbs is place 4 drops into the ear canal once a day. For dogs weighing 30 lbs or more, place 8 drops into the ear canal once a day. Therapy should continue for 7 consecutive days. Avoid getting this medication in the pet¿s eyes, nose or mouth.

What is Mometamax Otic Suspension: Mometamax Otic Suspension is a combination of medications with antibacterial (gentamicin), anti-inflammatory (mometasone) and antifungal (clotrimazole) activity. It is used in dogs for the treatment of otitis externa when caused by susceptible fungi or bacteria. Mometamax Otic Suspension may be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

What should I discuss my veterinarian before using Mometamax Otic Suspension: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to this medication or any of the individual ingredients. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be used: Apply this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand these directions ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Avoid getting Mometamax Otic Suspension in the dog's eyes, nose or mouth. Store Mometamax Otic Suspension at room temperature.

What happens if I miss using a dose: Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose you missed and apply the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not use a double dose of this medication unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.

What happens if I overdose the pet: An overdose of Mometamax Otic Suspension is unlikely to occur. If you suspect that a much larger than normal dose has been used, or that the medication has been ingested, contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

What should I avoid while applying Mometamax Otic Suspension: Avoid using any other medications in the pet's ear unless instructed to by your veterinarian. Do not use Mometamax Otic Suspension in dogs allergic to it or any of the individual ingredients. Use with caution in pregnant animals. Do not use in dogs with perforated ear drums.

Mometasone is a corticosteroid but is applied topically. Redness of the skin, stinging, blistering, peeling, fluid retention, itching, hives and general irritation of the skin have been observed occasionally in humans following the use of clotrimazole.

Momemtamax Mometamax product review: Given how common ear infections are in every day veterinary practice, and how difficult it is for some clients to medicate their pets ears twice to three times daily with prescribed topical medications, I was so excited when this wonderful product came out a few years ago with ONCE daily topical dosing. While many veterinarians do expensive evaluations of ear discharges under the microscope or ear cultures sent to outside labs, I would first ask your vet to prescribe one of the broadest acting topical antimicrobials on the market in Mometamax, before subjecting you to expensive superfluous tests, which may not be needed at least initially. . The truth of the matter is that most ear infections in dogs or cats are due to overgrowth of yeast and/or bacteria often together in inflamed ear canals. The vast majority of these infections are often accompanied by redness, swelling, heat and discharge, which are all signs of inflammation or allergies. These latter conditions are why it is so important to have an effective anti inflammatory like mometasone, as part of a topical ear medication in our pets. Because yeast overgrowth are so prevalent as well in such problem ears, the anti fungal clotrimazole is also often needed. And as I mention above, where many dogs have mixed populations of bacterial overgrowth in inflamed ears, including frustrating bacteria like pseudomonas, I find it also important to include the wonderful topical antibiotic gentamycin in such a combination product. It is because of this wonderful trio of main ingredients that make mometamax such an indispensable product to general veterinary practice, as well as make it my first line of prescription topical antimicrobial medicines that I will reach for, before doing extensive and expensive tests on inflamed/infected ears. I find the vast majority of ear infections will respond to a 10-21 day course of this medicine, often making these additional tests un necessary. Clients should also know that most, if not all of the prescription topical antimicrobials currently on the veterinary market are combination products like this, but none have the spectrum of coverage that mometamax has. When used with a wonderful ear cleaning agent first like 1800petmeds ear cleansing solution, pet suffering from these painful ear conditions is often quickly relieved. There are very few disadvantages to using this product. On rare occasions pets can have allergic reactions particularly to the topical gentacin in this product where hearing loss can occur temporarily or even more rare permanently. . However this is EXTREMELY rare in my experience, and one must also keep in mind that there can be very rare reactions with any medication whether prescription conventional drugs or natural ones. It is always critical to make sure your veterinarian has evaluated the ear drum(known as the tympanic membrane) before prescribing this product, as a ruptured ear drum can make pets more prone to topical or less common systemic reactions. Unless there is a ruptured ear drum, or the product is used for months at a time, I dont find systemic reactions to the rest of the body much of a problem in my years of using this product. Of course if the ear problem persists or relapses, a full medical workup for underlying or complicating factors should be done by your veterinarian, including an allergy workup, thyroid testing and/or culture or evaluation of the ear discharge under the microscope, in addition to possibly sedation of your pet and ear flushing and x rays of the skull to evaluate the middle/inner ears to evaluate whether surgical drainage might be helpful. I highly recommend and often prescribe mometamax as a first line drug of choice for many ear infections/inflammations. My overall rating of this product is an enthusiastic 5. Its ease of use is a 5 as well. 09/30/2008
Very effective My vet gave Mometamax for my Shitzu for an ear infection & said to treat both ears. Worked very fast, but noticed loss of hearing. I have stopped treatment, is this temporary? 03/26/2014
The utmost best product dogs ask for I have tried a lot of products, and this one product out does every item recomended for dogs.When my baby's need help with their ears, they will tell me they want Momentamax . They go the the shelf I keep it on and look at it and look at me. 03/13/2014
Best I have ever had and clears up infections right away!! use this for both dogs and works fast. 12/13/2013
Use on Hot Spots My Maltese has hot spots on his body and it has been impossible to diagnose the cause of this problem. My Vet recommended using Mometamax on the hot spots and it works! So although this product is recommended for ear infections placing a small amount on hot spots on my Maltese has worked to clear up the hot spot in a day. 10/28/2013

My 80 lb. dog still seems to be exhibiting some discomfort even though we've already given him his dose for the day. I'd like to ease his discomfort a bit by giving him maybe half a dose. Would this be okay?

Answer: 
If you are already using the recommended dosage prescribed by your vet, I would not give your dog any more because the discomfort may be due to the medicine or other condition. I know it may seem an easy fix and less costly but talk with your vet.

Answer: 
I would not recommend giving more than the prescribed dose, It may take a few days to see results as the infection clears up, if there i no improvement then you should consult the vet to see if there is something else going on with your dog.

Answer: 
I am surprised your vet prescribes Mometamax for allergy related ear infections. This medecation is for fungal infections (per my vet) like yeast infection, so a different medication may be needed. I would talk to your vet again or seek a different one.

Answer: 
Sorry that your pet is having allergies. Mometamax is a prescription required medication, it can only be dispensed with a veterinarians approval. We do not have any generic at this time.
