What is Tresaderm?

Tresaderm is used in pets to treat certain acute or chronic bacterial, fungal and inflammatory skin disorders, as well as otitis externa (ear inflammation). Tresaderm requires a prescription from your veterinarian. Tresaderm requires refrigeration and must be kept at refrigerator temperatures at all times. To ensure proper temperature, it requires overnight shipping at an additional cost.
For: Cats and Dogs
 
Benefits:
Successfully fights bacterial infections of the skin and ears
Also treats inflamed skin and ears
Drops make ear application easy

How it works:
Each 15 ml dropper of Tresaderm solution contains thiabendazole and dexamethasone neomycin sulfate. Thiabendazole is a fungicide and parasiticide that kills or inhibits fungi and parasites. Dexamethasone neomycin sulfate is a potent anti-inflammatory.

Tresaderm is available as a dermatologic solution in a 15ml dropper bottle for use in the ear(s) or to apply topically to the skin. Each ml of solution contains 40mg thiabendazole, 1mg dexamethasone, and neomycin sulfate equivalent to 3.2mg of neomycin. Prior to use the affected area should be cleaned. Application and use of Tresaderm should be limited to a period of not longer than one week. Do not use in the eyes.

What is Tresaderm: Tresaderm is a dermatologic solution used in dogs and cats as an aid in the treatment of certain acute or chronic bacterial, fungal and inflammatory skin disorders as well as otitis externa. Tresaderm may also be used for purposes other than those listed.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Tresaderm to my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant. Do not use Tresaderm if the pet is allergic to any of the individual ingredients. 

How should this medication be used: Use this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. The administration of Tresaderm depends on the severity of the condition and the extent of the lesions. The typical dose for the ear is 5-15 drops instilled into the ear twice a day. To treat skin disorders affecting other than the ear, the surface of the lesion should be well moistened with Tresaderm, usually 2-4 drops per square inch, twice a day.

Keep out of the reach of children or pets. 

What happens if I miss giving 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 give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet: An overdose of this medication is unlikely. If an overdose is suspected, seek emergency veterinary medical treatment.

What should I avoid while using Tresaderm on my pet: Do not use this medication in pets allergic to it or any of the individual ingredients. Discontinue use of this medication and contact the veterinarian if hearing loss is noted during treatment.

What are the possible side effects of Tresaderm: Side effects associated with this medication are related to the individual ingredients. Side effects following the use of injected or oral corticosteroids include increased thirst and urination, vomiting, diarrhea and Cushing's syndrome following prolonged or repeated steroid therapy. Discontinue use and contact the veterinarian if sensitivity to neomycin, which may cause redness, irritation and swelling, occurs. Continue the medication and talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What other drugs will affect Tresaderm: Before using Tresaderm, tell your veterinarian if your pet is using other antibiotic, antifungal or corticosteroid medications either topically or by mouth. Talk to the veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medicines.

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

Help for chronic infections My beagle gets ear infections regularly. It is the bane of the long floppy eared breeds. This medicine works well to quickly relieve the inflammation and allow healing to occur. I only wish it was in available in a larger size. 06/20/2011
It Works! I used it on my teddy bear ( that's the type of dog I have) for an ear infection and having ear mites and after going bizirc scratching her ears she's more relaxed now and free from the constant scratching 11/26/2013
Worked!! The only way your cat would have went deaf is if it wasn't treated in enough time for the ear infection. I read that if an infection is left alone for a while it will cause your animal to go deaf so I don't hardly believe that this product caused your cat to go deaf. I'm using it on my Beagle now and it works perfect. He doesn't feel any discomfort now and isn't messing with his floppy ears anymore. :) 09/07/2013
Works Great! This product was used for my male tuxedo cat. He gets ear infections pretty quickly. This product was very quick and very effective. Love it! Only wish it came in a bigger bottle. It runs out quickly. 02/08/2013
Worked quickly with no problems I took my 13 week old Persian kitten, Owen, to the vet for a wellness exam and booster shots. Owen had not been cared for properly in his previous home, so among ear mites and ear infections, he was also infested with fleas, had tapeworms, and an upper respiratory infection. Our vet prescribed Tresaderm for the ear infections (5 drops 2x daily for 10 days). We saw improvement after only a few days. A week later when I took him back for a follow-up on the URI, the vet said his ears looked good and the mites were gone. I was a little concerned about using this product on Owen after reading some of the reviews, but it worked well and didn't cause Owen any ill effects, other than making the fur around his ears a little sticky/greasy and the "trauma" of being wrapped in a towel #so he couldn't shred our hands and arms# while we put cold medicine in his ears. 12/23/2012

Answer: 
Prescription medications are good for 1 year from when it was dispensed or earlier according to the manufacturer's expiration date. Beyond this the efficacy of the medication cannot be guaranteed. You should contact your veterinarian regarding the infection to determine if you need to bring in your pet to be seen and which is the appropriate medication needed to treat your pet.

Answer: 
It wont hurt him....But what you can do is try and distract him for a while by playing with him or giving him some catnip or a treat. This will give the medication a chance to work.

My cat was prescribed tresaderm for a bacterial ear infection, after first being prescribed a weaker ear drop that did not work. The tresaderm worked after using for 1 week but the symptoms are progressively returning. It's been about 1 month since the first week cycle of using tresaderm. Is it safe to go through another week of drops? The vet is very expensive and I adopted two cats with a lot of issues due to their history of abuse :( so if I can save any money and trips to the vet (they LOVE those) that would be great!

Answer: 
Yes, it should be fine to keep using it. I keep some on hand for my Beagle just in case he starts to show symptoms again. My vet told me that I should use this prodcut 2 times a day and since I work late shifts my husband puts them in his ears in the mornings and when I get home at 3am I put them in and I also do a treatment of the 1800 petmeds ear cleanser drops too before I do the medicine just to help it. After this week is over though of the 2 times a day drops, he goes on to 1 drop a day until it is better. I recommend getting another bottle or 2 so you can have some on hand just in case the infection comes back. :)
