What is the most important information I should know about Mupirocin Ointment: Mupirocin Ointment is FDA approved for treating topical infections in dogs caused by susceptible strains of bacteria. Use this medication for the full amount of time prescribed by your veterinarian. Your pet's symptoms may improve before the infection is completely healed. Avoid getting this medication in the pet's eyes, nose, or mouth. Mupirocin Ointment is available by prescription as 2% strength in a 22 Gm tube. The usual dose of Mupirocin Ointment is to apply on the dog 2 times a day.

What is Mupirocin Ointment: Mupirocin Ointment is an antibiotic medication used on dogs which treats bacterial infections such as pyoderma and abscesses. Mupirocin Ointment may also be used for purposes other than those listed.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before using Mupirocin Ointment on my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has had an allergic reaction to Mupirocin Ointment in the past. The safe use in pregnant or breeding animals has not been determined.

How should this medication be used: Use Mupirocin Ointment exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Always wash your hands before and after applying this medication. Clean and dry the affected area first. Mupirocin Ointment is applied to the affected area 2 times a day. Apply a sufficient amount to completely cover the affected area. Treatment should not exceed 30 days. Avoid getting the medication in the pet's eyes, nose, or mouth. Store Mupirocin Ointment at room temperature. Keep out of the reach of children

What happens if I miss 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 use a double dose unless directed to by your veterinarian.

What happens if I overdose the pet: An overdose of Mupirocin Ointment is unlikely to occur. If an overdose is suspected, seek emergency veterinary medical treatment.

What should I avoid while applying Mupirocin Ointment: Because of the potential hazard of nephrotoxicity due to the polyethylene glycol content of the product base, care should be exercised when using this product in treating extensive deep lesions where absorption of large quantities of polyethylene glycol is possible.

What are the possible side effects of Mupirocin Ointment: Side effects are rare. If a skin reaction such as irritation should occur, treatment should be stopped and your veterinarian should be contacted. Side effects other than those listed may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What other drugs will affect Mupirocin Ointment: Avoid applying other topical medications at the same time unless told to by the veterinarian. Other topical medications may affect the absorption or effectiveness of Mupirocin Ointment.

Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has additional information about Mupirocin Ointment for health professionals that you may read.

Call your veterinarian for medical advice about any side effects to your pet. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Details of this product indicate that it should not be used in the eyes, nose or mouth. My dog has been diagnosed with nasal hyperkeratosis and I have been given this product to put on his nose 2 x day for 2 weeks. I know he will rub his nose with his paws and try to get it off and probably get it into his mouth. Will this harm him?

Answer: 
if he gets a little bit in his mouth, it will not be harmful. Ask your vet if maybe using a collar on him
until at least the ointment has had a chance to work on his nose ( 1 to 2 hours ) would be a possible
option. That is the wide collar on the neck that prevents licking or pawing off medication.

He has an infection just be low his eye. I was very careful to avoid his eye, but I guess he could have rubbed it into it. What should I do?

Answer: 
Please contact your veterinarian if the product gets into your dogs eye. The ointment is not chemically balanced to be used in the eyes and can be irritating. You may try to flush out the ointment with a saline only eye wash which can be found at your local drug store. Please do not use any eye drops or eye solutions that are for contact lenses.
