Answer:no that is not advisable. Sometimes an eye medication can be used in the ear, but only
eye products are designed in the sterile way needed for eyes and also with the right isotonic
solutions so it doesnt sting the eye. BOTTOM LINE IS THAT WILL STING THE EYE SO DO NOT
DO IT !!
Answer:That is not mentioned as a side effect or adverse reaction. It is a medication that works locally
as opposed to systemically like an oral or IV medication. Speak to your vet immediately to help
you determine the actual trigger of a seizure.
My vet recommended me Surolan for my dog about 4 months ago, I used on my dog for 7 days and the problem was gone. However, now her ear seems to be itchy again and since I have half bottle of Surolan left can I use it on my pet without visiting the vet again?
Answer:You should always consult with your veterinarian before giving any antibiotis to your dog, the itching may or may not be due to an infection.
i opened my dog's surolan 4 months ago and she still has an otitis now. is the product still good?
Answer:The product should have an expiration date either on the box the bottle came in, or on the bottle itself. This is the date that the product should no longer be used. Also, if your pet is still having problems with its ear after 4 months, you should let your veterinarian know about this. Thanks for your question.
We have two 9 month old GSPs. They are avid swimmers, and both of them had otitis externa with yeast and bacteria. We were prescribed a 7 day treatment of Surolan otic drops. 5-6 drops, twice a day. Both pup's ears were pretty bad. Vet said they might need surgery to reach the impacted yeast/wax to allow meds to clear up infection, but wanted to try Surolan first. I have seen that proper cleaning of ears prior to application of Surolan can vastly improve chances, but one vet stated it may take SEVERAL proper ear washes to get everything out. My vet only washed my dogs ears once and told me not to clean them again until after completing the 7 days of Surolan. It seems that the ears, though MUCH, MUCH better, are still slightly inflamed, and still getting a VERY SMALL amount of black sludge. On a scale of 1-10, they are both at a 1. They were both between 8 and 10, so much improved. I am worried the infection will return, though we are cleaning their ears daily. I'm using what the vet gave me to clean with...EPI-Otic solution, and as instructed. It's working, and I am cleaning daily, but still getting tiny, tiny amounts of the dark sludge. If I start the Surolan for another 7 days (they've been off of it for 2 weeks), can I clean before EACH application of surolan, or just initially. Or, should I just continue daily cleaning and skip the Surolan?
Answer:First I would only start the Surolan again if that is what the veterinarian recommends. The manufacturer suggests to clean the outer ear before each aplication but I would also discuss ths with the vet since I am not sure why suggested not to clean the ears while treating with the surolan.
The Epi-otic solution is a good cleanser and it may help to resolve the problem on own or you may need to add the antibacterial again.
