What is Surolan Otic Suspension?

Surolan is used to treat otitis externa and dermatitis in dogs caused by yeasts, fungi, bacteria and earmites. Surolan requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
Surolan Otic Suspension
For: Dogs
 
Benefits:
Effective treatment for otitis externa
FDA-approved

How it works:
The ingredients in Surolan are a combination of antifungal, antibiotic, and anti-inflammatory agents including polymyxin B, miconazole and prednisolone to help treat otitis externa.

Cautions:
Not for use in humans. Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children. Do not administer daily. For otic use only. Examine the external ear canal thoroughly to be certain the tympanic membranes are not ruptured. If overgrowth of non-susceptible bacteria or fungi occurs, treatment should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted. The safe use of Surolan in dogs used for breeding purposes, during pregnancy, or in lactating bitches has not been evaluated.


More Information:
Brand Name
Surolan Otic Suspension (Vetoquinol)
What is the most important information I should know about Surolan Otic Suspension:
Surolan Otic Suspension is a prescription medication FDA approved for use in dogs only. It is available in a 15 ml plastic dropper bottle. Use this medication for the full amount of time prescribed by your veterinarian, even if your pet appears to be better. Symptoms may improve before the infection is completely healed. Shake well before use. The usual dose for dogs of any weight is 5 drops placed into the ear canal 2 times a day and massage the ear. Therapy should continue for 7 consecutive days. Avoid getting this medication in your pet's eyes, nose or mouth.

What is Surolan Otic Suspension:
Surolan Otic Suspension is a combination of medications with antibacterial (polymyxin B sufate), anti-inflammatory (prednisolone acetate) and antifungal (miconazole nitrate) activity. It is used in dogs for the treatment of canine otitis externa associated with yeast and/or bacteria susceptible to polymyxin B and miconazole. Surolan Otic Suspension may be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

What should I discuss my veterinarian before using Surolan Otic Suspension:
Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to this medication or any of the individual ingredients. Do not use in dogs with a perforated ear drum. Do not use with other drugs known to cause ear damage (ototoxicity).

How should this medication be used:
The external ear should be thoroughly cleaned and dried before treatment. 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 Surolan Otic Suspension in your dog's eyes, nose or mouth. Store Surolan Otic Suspension at or below 77° F.

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 my pet:
An overdose of Surolan 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 swallowed, contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

What should I avoid while applying Surolan Otic Suspension:
Avoid using any other medications in your pet's ear unless instructed to by your veterinarian. Do not use Surolan Otic Suspension in dogs allergic to it or any of the individual ingredients. Do not use in dogs with perforated ear drums. Discontinue use of this medication if hearing loss is noted during treatment. Use of this product beyond the recommended dose of 7 days may result in delayed wound healing.

What are the possible side effects of Surolan Otic Suspension:
Side effects that may occur include topical sensitivity and reduced hearing or deafness. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What other drugs will affect Surolan Otic Suspension:
Avoid using other ear medications without first talking to your veterinarian. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Surolan Otic Suspension. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before taking or using any other prescription or over the counter medicines, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.

Where can I get more information:
Your pharmacist has additional information about Surolan Otic Suspension written for health professionals that you may read.

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: 
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.
