Zymox Otic treats the ear externally for acute and chronic inflammation caused by bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections. Some factors that may contribute to possible ear infections include: excessive hair, a suppressed immune system, and excessive skin folds in the ear. The addition of hydrocortisone provides added relief from inflammation as well as relief from itching.
Cats and Dogs
Zymox Otic has what the manufacturer calls a Three-Point Enzyme System. Each enzyme - lactoperoxidase, lysozyme, and lactoferrin - has its own unique properties that, when combined, becomes a powerful antimicrobial formula. The antibacterial property of the lactoperoxidase is based upon inhibiting vital bacterial metabolic enzymes. Lysozyme kills bacteria by disrupting the formation of a glycosidic bond between the two components of peptidoglycan, a constituent of the bacterial cell wall. Lastly, lactoferrin - an iron-binding protein - is bacteriostatic against a wide range of microorganisms, which means it inhibits the growth of the bacteria. The anti-inflammatory action of hydrocortisone reduces itching and inflammation.
Do not use this product when using any other topical ear medications or cleaners, since the enzyme activity of Zymox Otic with Hydrocortisone may not work.
