Posatex Otic Suspension
Posatex Otic Suspension 5 5
My vet prescribed this for my cat. I used for the indicated amount of time and it cleared up the infection. HOWEVER, 2 WEEK LATER, it came back. Guess I need to search for a new vet since this medication is supposed to be used for dogs only! 08/30/2013
BEST EAR MEDICATION FOR DOGS My 5-year-old Shih Tzu has had ear infections since she was a little puppy. She has been on several ear medications, none of which worked on an ongoing basis. We have a new vet who prescribed Posatex and her ear infection has cleared up entirely. If you dog has a chronic ear infection ask your vet to prescribe this medication, you will not be sorry. The medication at my vet was going to cost $95 and I asked her to give me a prescription instead. This medication cost less than half at Pet Meds than what my vet was charging. 07/28/2013
works fast , THANK GOODNESS I have a redbone coonhound with long droopy ears, as long as I have had her (9 years) she has had infections. We have tried EVERYTHING!! Some things would work for a while then just as quickly stop working all together. She has had MANY MANY vet appointments, huge vet bills, surgical cleanings,her poor head wrapped like a mummy and nothing has worked for any significant time. Her ears can go from clean and perfect to red, swollen, bloody nightmares overnight. This medication was FINALLY prescribed to her last year. Now her infections are fewer and further between. Fingers crossed that she doesn't become immune. 07/13/2012
Best Ear Meds I've Ever Used My almost-17-year-old dog has had chronic ear infections for well over 10 years. My vet prescribed Posatex about 6 months ago, and I swear it's like a miracle medicine!! Nothing has every worked that quickly to give my pup relief. It's just amazing. SO glad I can order here on PetMeds! 07/02/2012
ear allergies, red, sore, swelling have used several other ear prescriptions which have worked initially then stopped. this is the latest and i wasn't very hopeful as 2 of my dogs have chronic allergy ears which get very bad very fast. their ears will get bloody and can swell shut in a day. i smear this all over the red swollen inside ear - anywhere i see redness/swelling. significant improvement within 24 hours. this is really fast acting compared to all the other prescriptions we've used. hope it continues working and their ears don't become immune to it. but so far we are all pleased. 03/13/2012

My dog is timely with his regular check ups and vaccinations. It gets really expensive to take him to the vet for an ear infection after every bath! Ear washes just don't do the trick. No vets will issue a recurring prescription because they want the money from the visit - something's got to give way! Can someone offer a suggestion or advice other than using a hair dryer - my dog is terrified of hair dryers and vaccuums.
Answer:Preventative measures such as drying ears after bathing ( water in the ears leaves dogs
susceptible to infection ), Also cleansing the ears periodically will help rid of debris and wax.
A great diet will help the ears also and help the dog fight off infections better. Perhaps you need to
find a different vet who will sympathize with your need to prevent infections and who will work with
you to find a more economic plan for your pet. Call our customer service department for names of
low cost vet clinics in your area. Good Luck
