Mometamax 76 76
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

My dog had a ear infection with a bad smell used mometamax and she was better now the smell is back after a month can I use some more of the mometamax, thanks
Answer:Yes, of course. Its what your Vet give you in the first place. My little doggie has the same problem. My Vet pulled all the hair out of his ears and told me to keep his hair in his ears cleaned out. It just pulls a little and it really didn't bother him. I've noticed since I do that he isn't getting infections as much.
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.
my dog is prone to allergys of the ear, hate going to vet each time this happens,same thing over and over again, this gets very expensive . Can you help me? This is the product given each time, or is there a generic version that I could buy?
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.
Please advise if you have other size bottles, and what the ounces are. Thank you.
Answer:There are approximately 15-20 drops per gram. If you are careful 1 bottle of 15Gm
will be sufficient for 14 days.(225 to300 drops.We only have one size bottle in stock.
